The Raiders officially confirmed the reports that they had executed a trade with the Washington Redskins for quarterback Jason Campbell, who has been sacked 102 times since the start of the 2007 football season.

Adam Schefter reported that the Raiders gave up a fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft for the former Redskins starter and that they’ve also added a year on to his contract to keep him in Oakland through 2011.

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, including four years of college and five years in the NFL, this will be Campbell’s ninth offensive system and 10th coordinator. Campbell, in an interview with Rich Eisen of the NFL Network later admitted to it being his eighth offensive coordinator.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post reported via Twitter, that Campbell spoke with Al Davis prior to the trade. “I talked to Al Davis, and he said he wants me there. That means a lot to me. I’m ready to get to work,” said Campbell.

This trade could mean that JaMarcus Russell’s tenure as an Oakland Raider is soon to be over. Rumors continue to surface about Russell’s inability to get his weight down and make a concerted effort to fulfill the promise of his No. 1 overall selection of the 2007 NFL Draft.

It’s being speculated that the Raiders will ask Russell to take a steep pay cut in order to stay with the organization — a request that isn’t expected to be agreed to by the quarterback from LSU. Whether or not the Raiders release him prior to training camp will depend largely on if they want to take a risk of having him get injured and then being on the hook for his salary in 2010.

Irregardless of what the Raiders do with Russell, it’s Campbell’s position that he’s coming to Oakland to be the starter for the foreseeable future. The Raiders’ new starter told Eisen, “I feel like I was going to be the starter by just talking with them and details and everything, but in fact I’m going to go out there and put in all the work that I need to put in and move forward. I definitely, from talking to them, I expect to be the starter.

Last season, Campbell started all 16 games for the Redskins and had a quarterback rating of 86.4. He completed 327 passes on 507 attempts for 3,618 yards and 20 touchdowns against 15 interceptions — all the while being sacked 43 times.

Kirk Morrison thanked by Al Davis

Amy Trask released a statement regarding the trade of Kirk Morrison saying, “Mr. Davis spoke with Kirk Morrison, thanked him for all his contributions to the organization both on and off the field and told Kirk that the doors to the organization would always be open.
