Jason Campbell Will Request a Trade if Redskins Make a Move for Mark Sanchez
But things will be different if Washington -- rumored to be interested by the way -- makes a play for Mark Sanchez, according to Steve Wyche at NFL.com: this time around, Campbell will reportedly demand that the team trade him if they go looking around for another signal caller.
And this shouldn't be surprising. Or effective for that matter -- if the Redskins do plan on drafting Sanchez, they'll be trading up, obviously, and after that sort of move, it has to be assumed that Dan Synder and Vinny Cerrato will make some sort of move to recoup their losses. Such a move will probably involve sending Campbell to a team in immediate need of a starting quarterback, like the Jets.
In other words, Campbell can posture publicly all he wants, but if the Redskins are dead-set on getting Sanchez, Campbell is already out the door anyway. Of course, two potentially fun amusing nightmarish situations could emerge. First, the Skins draft Sanchez and trade Campbell and all the JC-apologists immediately fire up the hate machine on Sanchez.
Far more enticing though, is the idea of the Skins trying to trade up, having their move made public and still managing to get beat out for Sanchez by the Jets or Seahawks or Browns. Then everyone's in a world of pain. Except for those of us who get to watch.
