Campbell is hopeful to have a chance to start elsewhere, according to a league source, and has handled all the bumps in his Redskins career with class and dignity to this point. That's unlikely to change now. It's not in his nature.
Campbell, reached via text, said that he is "just chillin" for now and not making many public statements, at the request of his agent, Joel Segal.
Campbell did text, "It is hard right now, but I will get through it and bounce on my feet."
McNabb, who has been a friend and mentor to Campbell going back to Campbell's days at Auburn, reached out to him after the trade, according to a league source. Campbell is a former first-round pick who has not had stability during his career in terms of offensive systems, coaches or the nucleus of players around him.
