I just got off the phone with Redskins QB Jason Campbell, who found himself in the middle of the Jay Cutler saga as his name was mentioned in trade talks.
Campbell saw Redskins executive vice president Vinny Cerrato in the hallway of the team complex today, and he tried to calm the quarterback’s nerves, but the Cutler-to-Washington rumors still lingered for most of the day. One report even had the deal as imminent.
But now that Cutler has been traded to the Bears, Campbell can move on.
“This has taught me a valuable lesson about the business side of things and the playing side of things,” Campbell said. “A lot of my teammates and coaches reached out to me, and that means a lot.
“I am, and have never stopped preparing like I am going to be the Redskins’ QB.”
