Campbell reportedly gets extension

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Saturday, April 24th, 2010 at 10:22 am in Oakland Raiders.

Jason Campbell negotiated a contract extension, according to the NFL Network, which would pay him $4.5 million in 2011.

The favorite to be the Raiders starters, it seems unlikely the Raiders would pay JaMarcus Russell $9.45 million to hold a clipboard this season.

    Don’t forget to wake Al when the draft is over.

    ***

    Al Davis is awake.

    who do you think drafted Houston, Campbell, Ford & W. McFadden ???

    It’s about time Al Davis realized what Lane Kiffin tried to tell him 3 years ago. If Al would have just listened to Kiffin, someone who obviously understands today’s NFL more than he does, the process of rebuilding this franchise would be much further along that it is now, which is pretty much square 1.

    ========================================================

    Kiffin is also partly the reason we drafted Jamarcus and sold Al on him, Quinn, and CJ

    severeraiderz, what a load of crap, Kiffin hated the JaMarcus pick, and when Al fired Kiffin it was a huge part and it was even written by Al on the overhead projector..

    SevereRaiderz, Al DAvis has already revealed that Kiffin didn’t want Russell. Take it up with Al Davis. Lane Kiffin did NOT want Russell. Source, again: AL DAVIS, in his press conference where he fired Kiffin. So, you gonna give Kiffin his props for being right?
    =================================================================

    I’ll gve him props for being right after the fact….in that same press conference he also said how Kiffin liked all 3 of the aforementioned players and switched frequently between who he wanted at #1. Props to Kiffin for being right after being wrong on Jmarcus, for being wrong on Mike Williams, and for being a quitter. Cable is a stand up guy and this draft shows what can happen when the coach and Al Davis work together on a plan.

  • Raider-405

    Lombardi just said that Jrock should be cut within a week.

    He has said he wont take a pay cut

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Lombardi just broke it down. Raiders can’t pay Russell $9m to compete and risk injury…they will ask him for a pay cut…which Lombardki thinks JaDavis will refuse…and the Raiders will then cut him within a week or so

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Pete, you don’t have to admit Kiffin was right about Russell. He was. It’s provable. Al Davis is on video saying Kiffin wanted him, Al Davis just signed a QB and gave him an extension. I don’t need your concession to make my point. You can either agree, or fight with it and look stupid. So, no deal.

  • sloraiderkid

    Looking at J-Camp stats on ESPN…he seems to have the same fumbling problem jamarcus has. On the plus side, his passing tds, yards and rating have gone up every year in the league

  • http://www.wix.com/GGEden/ggeden GG

    Lombardi also says Raiders will ask JR to take a paycut, and if he doesnt (which he thinks he wont), then they’ll cut him within the week.

  • Raider-405

    Its a 2012 4th rd pick… thats incredible!!

    He hated the pick after he got Russell in campp, not before the pick was made.

    2 million is back-up money.
    4 million is “we’ll give you a chance, let’s see if you can be the long term answer,” money.

    I love how anything great that happens is thanks to marshal and Hue, but anything bad is Al’s fault…

    Yep….and I love the new format!

    I thought I wouldn’t like it…but it is genius!

  • xfactor247

    Is Cam Thomas still available?

    Jason Campbell shares some traits with Joe Flacco and Carson Palmer, all of them are big, pocket passers with strong arms, Flacco and Campbell are a more athletic than Palmer is but overall, they are similar in skill set.

    Hue Jackson coached Flacco and Palmer before, now he gets Jason Campbell to work with at a much more advanced stage in his development than Flacco was when he got him and obviously Campbell has not yet accomplished the success Palmer has, but I think Jackson should be able to make Campbell feel comfortable right away.

    I can’t find a flaw about this move, of course, Campbell hasn’t played a snap yet but things are looking up for this team.

    So Kiffin would’ve taken Quinn with the first overall pick? That would’ve worked out well also huh?

  • http://www.actionext.com/playlist_57486.html La Milicia Negra

    He hated him from the start, Al said so himself, Kiffin only said he was glad of the Jammy pick, because Al told him Kiffin to say that…

    Anybody else want to try and say that Kiffin was the one who wanted Russell? One person thought about it, but wisely changed their tune. I’ve got a ton of evidence, video included, for anyone who wants to go there. I know you Davis guys. If there’s one, there’s another. Come on.

  • SteveAlford21

    RMR,

    I don’t know what went on inside Raiders HQ, but I believe that Kiffin arguing his case NOT to draft Russell… and then complaining about having him… was the reason that Kiffin said “Screw it” and stopped trying to coach the team, instead trying to figure out how to get out of town and further his career. I liked Kiffin as a coach… and wish that we had never drafted JR and never fired Kiffin. That being said, the way Kiffin handled things after we DID draft JR… well, he seems to have been acting like a child, leaking things to the media (true and untrue) and being sneaky, trying to get fired, then going off to Tennessee until a better position came up at USC. I hated that he went to UT because I’m a Kentucky fan and I wanted to support him, but blood allegiances to the big blue prevented that. Then he showed that he didn’t really care about Tennessee anyway, so now I’m somewhat torn. Either way, he did bad by the franchise by refusing to make the best of a bad situation when he was handed JR… but he was definitely right about it being a bad pick (as was I, mothefukkers).

    From ESPN
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft10/news/story?id=5132638

    The Oakland Raiders, after making a deal that shipped out their leading tackler for the past four years, added a possible starting quarterback Saturday in a deal with the Washington Redskins for Jason Campbell.

    In acquiring Campbell, the Raiders added a year to his existing contract, the quarterback told ESPN.com’s Matt Mosley. He will make $4.5 million in 2011.

    “I look at this as getting to start over,” Campbell told Mosley. “I talked to Mr. Davis, and he wanted me for two years. He wants me to help their team to a new level.”

    Campbell had already signed the Redskins’ tender offer worth $3.1 million for 2010.

    When asked if he was promised the starting position, Campbell said he “got that feeling.”

    “I’m going to work hard to make sure that happens,” Campbell said.

  • Mistabr0wn

    If you wanted Clausen before the draft started thats cool but pissing & moaning after we added Campbell added a MLB, DE, 2 OL, and WR it seems like your kind of a dum a$$.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I think Al Davis should offer JaWalrus $4 million this year, down from his original $9.5 million (since $3 million is guaranteed anyways)

    if he balks, he’s out …

    let’s find out how bad he actually wants to EARN the job this offseason :)

    It doesnt matter what Kiffin thinks about jamarcus because in a weeks time neither of them will even be in the NFL anymore!

    GO RAIDERS. Man I feel good about this draft other than the MCfadden pick. But we do need a zero shade /1 tech DT, FB and a OG.

    ============================================================

    I said the same thing that i have been saying….Lane wanted to draft Russell, CJ, or Quinn. After he realized that the Raiders drafted a bum, he was unhappy with the pick and the player. Its impossible to fight over the computer.

    Another example that JaMarcus just doesn’t get it. He’s living in his own world.

    So Kiffin would’ve taken Quinn with the first overall pick? That would’ve worked out well also huh?
    ================================
    Actually he wanted the WR, and take a QB in the later rounds. He wanted the Bills QB Edwards.
