In a move that has been long anticipated, Joe Gibbs announced today that Jason Campbell will start at quarterback for the Washington Redskins on Sunday when they travel to Tampa to take on the Buccaneers.
Campbell, in his second season with the Redskins, has yet to take an NFL snap. The Redskins drafted him out of Auburn in the first round in 2005. They traded three picks, including their first selection in the 2006 draft, to Denver to obtain the late first rounder that they used to take Campbell.
At Auburn, Campbell was the SEC Offensive Player of the Year as a senior, leading the Tigers to the conference title in an undefeated season.
