Sorry for falling behind a few of the days rumors. Our Twitter Mock Draft starts tomorrow so be sure to check in throughout the week.
Mike Jones of the Washington Post writes that two sources close to Minnesota Vikings have mentioned that the team are “indeed” interested in Redskins QB Donovan McNabb. Jones adds that Washington has “already tipped their hand” by indicating that McNabb is not part of their future plans.
At 34, McNabb is not going to find a team that’s willing to give him a big contract. His 2010 performance leaves some questions about his ability but the need for quarterbacks should help him find a starting job.
The Vikings have already said that they’re ok with a rookie QB under center but they have also been linked to veteran players like McNabb, Kyle Orton and Kevin Kolb so they’re basically looking for the best situation.
Any trade will require a new CBA, draft pick compensation and a restructured contract from McNabb. He’s set to make $10 million for the up coming season and there’s no team that’s going to trade for him at that price.
When you add up all of these factors, it looks like any deal is going to take a while before Donovan is in a different jersy come 2011.
