Campbell Is a Sports Illustrated Coverboy



From the SI press release (via @Unsilent);

This week’s August 10, 2009, issue of Sports Illustrated, on newsstands tomorrow, features Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell with the billing NFL Camps Open: Pressure Points And Pivotal Players.

SI senior NFL writers Peter King and Jim Trotter, who have visited various training camps from coast to coast, focus on five hot spots where the pressures of August will be acute. According to King and Trotter, Redskins QB Jason Campbell is perhaps the player facing the greatest scrutiny:  “Despite appearances, though, Campbell might be under the harshest spotlight of any NFL player as training camps open across the country.  In the off-season the Skins pursued Jay Cutler and showed interest in Mark Sanchez, and as the fifth-year quarterback walked onto the practice field the name of yet another available quarterback popped up.  At least two fans were wearing Falcons number 7 jerseys, and behind a fence near the practice field a DC WANTS VICK sign waved in the crowd.”
