Campbell An Amazing Value

It isn’t often you can get a starting QB via trade.

It is even more rare when you can get a starting QB for a fourth round pick two years into the future.

The Raiders have added a year to Campbell’s deal making him a Raider through 2011.

Jason Campbell’s deal in oakland will pay him $3.14 million this season and $4.5 million in 2011 according to Adam Schefter.

What does this mean for JaMarcus Russell and Bruce Gradkowski?

Give the reigns to Campbell or a true competition? Time will tell.

So who is Jason Campbell? Some scrub that couldn’t win in Washington?

Not exactly. Cambpbell has improved every year of his NFL career and each year has had a new offensive coordinator.

He already gives the Raiders what they want, a 60% completion percentage and 3,000 yard passer.

Clearly a great draft for the Raiders.

Al Davis reportedly called Kirk Morrison to thank him for his service. Classy move by the old man, Kirk was a fan favorite.
