You have a big name, a big arm and the media will be all over you. I’d be willing to bet that Redskins’ owner Daniel Snyder is beating your door down.
I know that the Redskins already have Jason Campbell, but when has Snyder ever let an opportunity to push aside the future for the buzzworthy name? Stever Spurrier, Bruce Smith and Deion Sanders can tell you that. Dude went after a flailing Tom Cruise, for crying-out-loud!
Unlike some other destinations, the Skins aren’t a lost cause. They were a playoff team a year ago despite losing some very, very close games and facing some very, very difficult situations. A guy like you could tighten it up. After all, the Redskins are installing a West Coast Offense that was designed by Mike Holmgren — your former coach at Green Bay. You’d have speedsters Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle-El at your disposal … as well as TE Chris Cooley and some promising rookie receivers.
Washington likes old guys. Most of the government is filled with them. The Redskins also have quite the history of old guys on their team. Remember the Over-The-Hill Gang of the 1970s?
Hmmm. The Redskins of the 70s? There was another famous Green Bay Packer that found his way to Washington after he briefly retired from the Packers. Some guy named Vince Lombardi.
If it was good enough for him, it is good enough for you!
