Quarterback Jason Campbell signed his $3.1 million tender Monday with the Washington Redskins, taking him off the market as a restricted free agent while leaving open the possibility of a trade. Campbell was given permission to explore a trade after Donovan McNabb was acquired from Philadelphia last week. Campbell couldn't find a team that would make a suitable offer to him as a restricted free agent, so he signed the tender.
