ESPN’s Michael Smith is reporting that the Washington Redskins and Donovan McNabb have come to an agreement that will keep him in Washington for another four years. Smith says that the deal is a reported five-years at $78 millions which includes $40 million guaranteed.
This continues the Redskins string of strange deals worth a lot of money. At least they can focus on McNabb and not restart the process all over again next year.
There were several reports over the weekend that suggested the Washington Redskins were having contract extension talks with Donovan McNabb‘s agent. The new is surprising given that benching fiasco that has played out for the last week or so.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to report the news but FoxSports’s Jay Glazer added that the Redskins will not bench McNabb unless he absolutely forces them to against Philadelphia tonight.
Schefter reports that the two parties are discussing a four-year extension that would be similar to Tom Brady‘s recent contract in terms of length and not money.
Considering all that has taken place this season between the Washington Redskins and Donovan McNabb, it would be surprising to see them rush to get a deal done when they could wait until the offseason and look for the perfect fit for both of their situations.
