The arrival of Donovan McNabb likely spelled the end of Jason Campbell in Washington. Campebll, a restricted free agent, is expected to sign his restricted free agent tender by Monday at the latest, the Washington Post reports.
As of late Thursday night, Campbell had not yet signed the first-round tender he received from the Redskins, two people familiar with the situation said. He does plan to sign the one-year, $3.14-million contract, the sources said, and is expected to do so no later than Monday.
This opens the door for the Redskins to trade him. Without a signed tender, Campbell would have only been available to other teams by signing an offer sheet. Now, the Redskins can deal him for any compensation they feel fit.
There are expected to be a number of teams interested in Campbell, including Buffalo.
