Shanahan: We’ll tender Campbell

Denver head coach Mike Shanahan is addressing the media at the NFL Combine and was asked if the Redskins will tender Jason Campbell.

“Yes, we will tender Jason,” said Shanahan. “We’ll get that done next week.” 

Shanahan didn’t say what level of tender would be used on the quarterback. Presumably it would be the minimum, which would carry draft compensation based on the original round in which Campbell was drafted which was the first. The minimum tender this year for Campbell would be $3.15M.

The thinking in Washington was Campbell could be moved via trade, but there’s also the belief that Campbell could be used as a stop gap QB in Washington in 2010 and let a rookie QB like Bradford or Clausen sit and watch for a year until the team gets the offensive line back in order. No sense in throwing a rookie QB to the wolves if the pass protection isn’t sound.
