INDIANAPOLIS | Mike Shanahan said that the Washington Redskins plan to tender Jason Campbell, their starting quarterback the past 3 seasons, before free agency begins on March 5.

But Shanahan wouldn’t commit to Campbell as his starter. Shanahan said he’s still evaluating Campbell, whom Redskins owner Dan Snyder tried to replace in failed attempts to acquire Jay Cutler and Mark Sanchez last offseason.

Shanahan spoke to the media from the scouting combine in Indianapolis for the first time in the 51 days since his introductory press conference as Redskins coach.

The coach said that his son, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, will call the plays whether the quarterback is Campbell or perhaps a rookie if they take a QB in the draft.
