But they're still out there. The Washington Post reports that the Vikings are one of the teams that are interested in McNabb's services if/when the lockout is lifted.
That's not a huge surprise. The Vikings have been one of the teams that has been consistently linked to McNabb because they have a roster that's ready to win now but no quarterback. So someone like McNabb makes sense.
The Post's report includes one caveat with a McNabb trade.
One league source said none of the teams interested in McNabb is expected to want to offer much for the 34-year-old quarterback, not because they doubt his skills but because the Redskins already tipped their hand that McNabb doesn't have a future in Washington.
Indeed, the Redskins benched McNabb late in the season and there have been other indications that he won't be coming back to Washington. One of those include McNabb's contract, which includes a $10 million bonus early in the league year (whenever the lockout is lifted). With that contract, and with the thought that the Redskins plan on dumping McNabb anyway, his value is low.
However, if the Redskins can re-work McNabb's contract, he becomes much more desirable.
Once the lockout is lifted, it's possible some of these rumors come to fruition.
