Evening AFC West news and notes
By Bill Williamson
The Washington Post is reporting that replaced Redskins starting quarterback Jason Campbell is about to sign his restricted free agent tender. That could expedite a trade out of Washington. It was reported earlier this week the Raiders are interested in Campbell.
It doesn’t appear the Raiders had a scouting contingent at Jimmy Clausen’s Pro Day on Friday. ESPN’s Mel Kiper believes he will be the team’s pick at No. 8. The lack of an Oakland presence doesn’t necessarily mean much, but if the Raiders were seriously considering him, they’d probably take a close look at Clausen at some point.
It is being reported Oakland is looking at Northwestern quarterback Mike Kafka. He is expected to be a mid-round pick. There’s no doubt Oakland is hoping to add a quarterback somehow this offseason.
In a radio interview, Kansas City quarterback Matt Cassel talks about the differences between his second and his first offseason in Kansas City.
