The Redskins have signed free agent offensive tackle Chris Campbell. Campbell has spent the last two seasons as a member of the practice squad for the Green Bay Packers. He is currently twenty-five years old and is 6'5, 328 lbs. Campbell went to Eastern Illinois for his college ball, which just happens to be the alma-mater of Redskins' head coach Mike Shanahan.
Campbell was widely known as a success story at his Chicago high school, Marshall. Campbell was an average lineman, walked-on to Eastern Illinois, and eventually developed into a starter and NFL prospect. He is most known for his sheer work ethic. He will provide depth for the time being for the Redskins battered offensive line.
In a corresponding move the Redskins have cut injured wide receiver Darius Hanks. Hanks was signed as an undrafted free agent this offseason out of Alabama.
