Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen appeared on a team-owned local sports station for an interview regarding the recently signed five-year contract extension offered to quarterback Donovan McNabb.
In the interview, Allen declined to offer specifics on the terms of extension, but revealed some other details about the process. As was previously reported, Allen confirmed that the contract process has been ongoing "for some time."
"I think Coach [Mike Shanahan] and myself said that Donovan's going to be here from the beginning, and Donovan has been real clear in his intent of being a Redskin," Allen said. "So I think it just puts [an] exclamation point on it and now we can focus on the Eagles."
"When we made the trade for him, we understood what we were getting in Donovan. We're pleased with the leadership that he brings and we believe he can help us win."
So the team is obviously sending a message both vocally and financially that regardless of what happened in Detroit, there is no quarterback controversy in D.C.
