Jason Campbell has signed his $3.1 million tender with the Washington Redskins, taking him off the market as a restricted free agent while leaving open the possibility of a trade.

After the Redskins traded for QB Donovan McNabb, NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reported that Campbell met with coach Mike Shanahahn the following Monday. He was given permission to explore a trade, but couldn't find a team that would make a suitable offer to him having a first-round tender, so he signed the tender Monday.

The move puts the onus back on the Redskins to find a trade partner for Campbell. Their best chance might come during next week's draft.

Campbell is hopeful to have a chance to start elsewhere, a league source told La Canfora.

Campbell has stopped attending voluntary workouts at Redskins Park and is not expected to attend this weekend's three-day minicamp. The Redskins hope to get a mid-round pick back for him, a league source told La Canfora. Campbell was one of the team's two first-round picks in 2005.

The Redskins also signed free agent nose tackle Anthony Bryant, who spent last year on the New York Giants practice squad.
