Incidentally, WUSA’s David Elfin reported earlier Wednesday that Campbell will be married in February, and that Carlos Rogers will be in the ceremony.

As for Campbell’s football future, it’s somewhat unclear, after his injury, the Raiders’ trade for Carson Palmer, and the subsequent firing of everyone who lives within 20 miles of Oakland.

“I understand, things are gonna happen,” Campbell recently said on SiriusXM NFL Radio with Adam Schein and Rich Gannon. “This is not my first rodeo. I’ve gone through some things. I understand from a business standpoint, things are gonna happen, and I’m never surprised or shocked about anything.

“People forget, the game that we play, it’s not a guaranteed game. There’s nothing guaranteed. In each year that you play, it’s not about the contract; you’re basically playing from year to year. So your object is always to improve, and your object is always to help lead your team and get your team to where you want it to be.

“And I always look for improvement, I don’t never get too comfortable, don’t never get too settled, because things can change in an instant. Things can change in a quick minute. And that’s what I’m always trying to tell the young guys: don’t get too comfortable, don’t ever just stop pushing yourselves, because there’s always someone else pushing right behind you. There’s teams and people looking to always improve their franchise. So the minute you get comfortable will be the minute you have to make a sudden move or a sudden change. So always stay on top of what you’re doing.”
