It seems you plug up one hole and another one comes up somewhere else. Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell wants out of DC after the latest rumors that the team was actively pursuing Pro-Bowler Jay Cutler in a trade.
Campbell is planning to fly back to his home tonight in Mississippi with his wife, Mercedes Lindsay, to consult with his family regarding the recent knife put in his back.
This morning, Washington Redskins Owner, Daniel Snyder, and Head Coach, Jim Zorn, arranged to have lunch this afternoon with the QB at Johnny Rockets.
Within a couple minutes though, Jason Campbell was seen walking out the restaurant. When asked to comment on how the meeting went, Campbell frowned before saying, "No Pepsi products!"
Campbell would also add that he does not feel that this is how an organization should treat their QB.
"They took me in the first round so I should be the guy, they (the Redskins) need to stop changing the offense and be more concerned with making my millionaire ass feel safe and secure. I have a better record than him (Jay Cutler) and I went to a much better college too."
When asked about the disappointing finish to the 2008 season, Campbell retorted "I would like to see any of you win eight games with an offensive line that couldn't block a can of tuna."
"Our defense was already very good yet there is more concern spending money on that than on protecting me. I didn't want it to come to this, but I feel betrayed and am craving some Pepsi."
Daniel Snyder still feels optimistic that a solution is there to be found and said regarding the Skins' current QB, "Jason Campbell is our QB...Period...That's present tense."
The team is currently in talks with free agent OT Jon Runyan in an effort to protect Jason Campbell. Snyder is looking to have another sit-down with Campbell and head coach Jim Zorn at Johnny Rockets.
One can hope for Snyder's sake that he will finally wise up and bring Pepsi to the restaurant chain.
