Eight days after trading for the one remaining year on Donovan McNabb's contract, the Redskins have acquired the rights to another quarterback for one year.

This time, it's Jason Campbell, incumbent starter and restricted free agent. Per Jay Glazer of FOX, Campbell will sign his one-year, $2.5 million tender offer. Campbell was offered an amount that would have secured the Redskins a right to match any offer, and a first-round pick as compensation if they opted not to do so. No team expressed any interest in signing him to an offer sheet.

Now that he's under contract, he can be traded without delay. It's our understanding that this is the primary motivation for signing the tender.

For most restricted free agents, signing the tender offer guarantees nothing. Franchise players (like Steelers kicker Jeff Reed) see their base salary become fully guaranteed upon signing the offer.

The exception this year is Chargers running back Darren Sproles, who was a franchise player in 2009. The CBA suggests that all terms from last year's contract -- including the guaranteed payout -- applies to the RFA tender.

last I heard, he had changed his mind and was going to take his time...

This doesn't take him off the market though, it only makes trading him a lot more easier...

They could also hang onto him and let him get some training under Donovan

That is a lot of investment for a backup and a "student"... He will be making more than Matt Moore if they keep him...

After signing 1-year, $3.14 million tender today, Redskins QB Jason Campbell won't report to this weekend's minicamp. He's hoping for trade.

Signing tender to clear the way for a trade. Nobody, not even Al Davis, was gonna give the Skins a 1st and a 3rd for Campbell.
