Source: Campbell-to-Bills rumor bogus
INDIANAPOLIS -- Buffalo Bills message boards are going kooky nuts over the rumor that the club is working out a deal that would send safety Donte Whitner to the Washington Redskins for quarterback Jason Campbell.
The rumor picked up speed here at the NFL scouting combine when Washington Post reporter Jason Reid blogged about it and said both he and NFL Network insider Jason LaCanfora were tracking it.
NFC East gadabout Matt Mosley picked up the phone and learned, from an unnamed league source, the Redskins have assured Campbell the rumor is bogus.
Mosley writes Redskins coach Mike Shanahan intends to keep Campbell and general manager Bruce Allen will meet with agent Joel Segal in Indianapolis to discuss Campbell's future.
Mosley writes: "Unless another team blows the Skins away with a trade offer, I think Campbell will be back in 2010."
