August 23-- Pete Kendall deal done

The Redskins have completed a trade with the Jets for guard Pete Kendall.. At the time I am writing this, Kendall is in the building and taking a physical, assuming he passes, the deal will be complete.. The compensation is as follows, the Jets will receive a 2008 5th round draft pick unless Kendall plays 80% of the offensive snaps this season.. If he meets that criteria, the Skins will give New York a 2009 4th round pick.. Washington doesn’t have a 4th rounder in 2008 due to the TJ Duckett deal..

One source told me that 3 AFC teams had offers on the table with the Jets, however New York wasn’t going to deal Kendall to a conference foe, thus if they didn’t deal him to the Skins, he wouldn’t have been traded at all.. Kendall wanted out of NY after the team (in his belief) reneged on a promise to renegotiate his contract after last season..
Kendall is not expected to play against Baltimore having not gotten to DC in time for the final practice before the pre-season game.. Joe Gibbs has promised Kendall no starting spot and says the team got him because he is versatile and has shown the ability to start over a long period of time.. He’s a 12 year vet who played for Seattle, Arizona and the last 3 seasons with the Jets..

Todd Collins will start Saturday against Baltimore at quarterback.. Jason Campbell has been ruled out but the staff believes he will be able to return as the starter for the final pre-season game in Jacksonville.. Joe Gibbs says Mark Brunell will be the first off the bench (or the starter if Campbell doesn’t go) in the team’s final pre-season game in Jacksonville and that no decision has been made on who Campbell’s primary back-up will be..

The team is expected to place TE Tyler Ecker on IR with a groin injury to make room on the roster for Kendall, however that move has not been made official at this point..
G Randy Thomas was held out of practice today.. Joe Gibbs said it was just the planned rest day for Thomas.. LB Marcus Washington is out with an elbow injury.. T Chris Samuels is out with a knee injury.. RB Dee Brown has missed the last two days of practice with a personal issue..

The Skins are expected to take a look at veteran FB Fred Beasley.. He was scheduled to come in for a workout..

OK men..
