NFL Networks Jason La Canfora reports that Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb insists on being a starter which is something that’s not likely to happen in Washington when you consider that he’s set to make $10 million for the upcoming season.
La Canfora mentions that McNabb would like to have the situation addressed sooner rather than later so that it allows him time to find a new team. Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan already mentioned that he believes in releasing players earlier on so that the have a chance to test the market but he appears to be taking his time with McNabb.
Shanahan is most likely holding out so that he can maximize McNabb’s trade value. Once a new CBA is in place, the Redskins can start fielding offers for McNabb and considering the number of teams that are in need of quarterback, someone will give them a decent offer for him.
