NFL: New QB in Oaktown?

Sources indicate that the Oakland Raiders have sent a low-round pick to the Washington Redskins for QB Jason Campbell.

Mancini’s Take: The days of JaMarcus Russell as the the Raiders starting quarterback may have (mercifully) come to an end with the arrival of Campbell. The former Redskin has the physical tools and temperment to be a quality starter in the league, not to mention the fact that he’s a significant upgrade at the position over both Russell and the feisty Bruce Gradkowski. However, Campbell needs to play at a quicker pace. He’s often a half-second late in identifying open receivers. But in all fairness, the Auburn product also played behind a porous offensive line last year, which prevented him from establishing a rythm in the pocket.
