The Oakland Raiders will send a 2012 fourth-round pick to the Washington Redskins in exchange for QB Jason Campbell. The trade was completed a short while ago and it’s believed that the Raiders have extended Campbell’s contract.
“I talked to [Raiders owner] Al Davis, and he said he wants me there,” Campbell told Jason Reid of the Washington Post. “That means a lot to me. I’m ready to get to work.”
So are about twelve other QB’s on the Oakland roster. Campbell will be competing with (and when we say competing, we mean that he’ll be handed the starting job) JaMarcus Russell, Kyle Boller, Bruce Gradkowski and Charlie Frye.
The only person that has any remote chance of winning that job besides Campbell will be JaMarcus. He’s still got the big contract and the hopes that come with being a #1-overall pick. We don’t think there is any way that he fights hard enough to win the job, but you have to think he’ll be given every opportunity. That is…is he’s not cut before the end of the day.
