Campbell tendered for $3.1 million
By Adam Schefter
The Washington Redskins placed the first-round tender on quarterback Jason Campbell, according to a league source.
If any team wants to sign Campbell to an offer sheet, the Redskins would have seven days to match or get back the other team's first-round pick.
The first-round tender for a player that has played five seasons like Campbell is $2.621 million, but Campbell's tag is for more than $3.1 million because it is 110 percent of a player's 2009 base salary.
The Redskins also put a tender on cornerback Carlos Rogers -- $1.542 million, according to NFL sources. He was given a tender in the round he was originally drafted (he was a first-round pick) and the Redskins would receive a first-round pick in return if he signed with another team. However, the Redskins did not give Rogers the high first-round tender.
Running back Quinton Ganther was not tendered, so he becomes a free agent.
New Redskins coach Mike Shanahan had said he would tender
Campbell but hasn't committed to him as his starter.
Campbell has started 52 games in his five seasons with the
Redskins. He has his best statistical season last year, but the
team struggled and finished 4-12.
