Jason Campbell traded to Raiders for 3rd and 4th Round Picks (rumor/very early reports)

There are multiple sources reporting that Jason Campbell (Redskins 1 year tender 3.1mm) has been traded to the Raiders for 3rd and 4th round picks. These aren't the best sources like ESPN but they are not just blogs or forum posts either, this may be all innuendo but the timing, the compensation and the trade all make perfect sense. Since it is still early it is unknown if both of these draft picks are for the 2010 or 2011 draft.

These reports make a lot of sense: the Raiders are losing faith in JaMarcus Russell and a 3rd in 2010 plus a conditional 2011 pick around the 3rd, 4th, 5th is likely to be Jason Campbell's trade value. Look for a major announcement later today or tomorrow as the ink dries, or we will see if this is all a hoax.
