I actually wouldn't mind bringing this guy in to be a backup, b/c of his special teams play. It would be a lot lke the Griesen signing. Plus he is an OLB, so he could at least compete for some playing time.
Washington Redskins reserve linebacker and special-teams ace Khary Campbell has declined the team’s contract offer of a veteran minimum salary and is holding talks with other NFL teams, according to David Elfin of the Washington Times.
Per the report, Campbell, who led the Redskins in special-teams tackles over the past three seasons, has made up his mind that he’s not going to accept the offer and will be moving on.
“That wasn’t something I was going to accept,” Campbell told the Times. “And they drafted two linebackers. They did what they had to do, and I’m going to do what I have to do.”
Campbell, 30, is a former Bowling Green player who had a previous stint with the New York Jets.
He registered 13 tackles last season and a career-high 34 in 200 for the Redskins, appearing in 30 out of the past 32 regular-season games.
