Earlier today I wrote about the future prospects of Donovan McNabb. I wondered if his career would end sadly or if McNabb would get a shot somewhere else. I'm confirming that the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings are in intense trade discussions for McNabb, according to one source with knowledge of the situation.
Now, this isn't a shock. The Vikings and Cardinals were always potential destinations and once the Cardinals got their shorts in a bunch over Kevin Kolb, it seemed McNabb was destined to be targeted by the quarterback-desperate Vikings.
Now this deal isn't done. I'm told contrary to other reports there is no firm deal in place. Talks could collapse at any moment and I think the odds of it happening are 50-50 at best.
But there's one thing that's all but certain. He's gone from Washington.
