Campbell Signs Free-agent Tender
Jason Campbell, the Redskins starting QB since 2007, has signed his restricted free agent offer sheet with the Redskins. He will be owed $3.1 million from the tender, unless he can work out a long term deal. By signing his tender, Campbell opens the door to a possible trade since the team has just acquired Donovan McNabb to be their starter. The 3-year starter has stopped attending voluntary workouts with the organization, and is not expected to attend a three-day mini-camp this weekend either.

Johnson/Ebanks Entering NBA Draft
Syracuse star Wesley Johnson officially declared his eligibility for the NBA Draft on Monday. Johnson was the Big East Player of the Year, averaging 16.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. He was also a finalist for the Naismith Trophy, given annually to the best basketball player in the country.
West Virginia forward Devin Ebanks also announced Monday that he will be entering the NBA Draft. He hasn't signed with an agent yet, meaning he still has time to change his mind, but WVU basketball spokesman Bryan Messerly said Ebanks plans to pick one soon. He averaged 12 points and 8.1 rebounds per game last season, and was considered the best defender on the WVU Final Four team.
