The Washington Redskins picked up where they left off Tuesday, signing former University of Maryland and Carolina Panthers offensive tackle Bruce Campbell to a one-year, $655,000 contract. Campbell was selected in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft despite predictions by draft analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Scott Wright that he could be chosen as high as the top 10.
After being drafted by the Raiders, former head coach Tom Cable attempted to move Campbell to right guard where he struggled to adjust to the position. Campbell was then dealt to the Carolina Panthers in return for running back Mike Goodson.
Now offensive line coach Chris Foerster will look to return Campbell to his prior form in the friendly confines of Redskins Park. Campbell will provide depth to an offensive line that struggled with injuries as well as protecting quarterback Robert Griffin III. Campbell has played in 19 career games during his four-year career and will now take his talents to the Washington Redskins.
