We've been talking about the future of Washington Redskins QB Donvoan McNabb and with a $10 million bonus due as the 2011 season starts, it seems like a foregone conclusion that the Redskins will trade or release him. Geoff Mosher of the Wilmington News-Journal writes this on McNabb:
"Perhaps there is no worse sign for McNabb than the fact that the Vikings, coached by former Eagles assistant Leslie Frazier, almost tore a biceps tendon reaching for Christian Ponder at 12th overall."
Indeed, the Vikings and three other quarterback needy teams took a quarterback in the first 12 picks of the 2011 NFL draft. The Cincinnati Bengals and San Francisco 49ers also addressed their quarterback in the second round so they may not be looking for quarterback help.
And then there's the idea that, wherever McNabb goes next, he will demand to be a starter. With the NFL lockout taking up some, if not all of the offseason, there may not be time to prepare McNabb as a starter on his next team.
I'm still not ready to believe McNabb is done but the idea of his career ending so abruptly is out there and it's not that crazy to think about.
