To say that the Washington Redskins have an issue at quarterback entering the 2011 season is a bit of an understatement. Donovan McNabb is the center of the controversy, as he is in line to receive a $10 million bonus at the start of the upcoming season, but there continues to be speculation that the team will trade him or release before it gets to that point.
However, Mike Shanahan recently told fans at a youth football camp that (via ESPN) that until he can speak with McNabb, there's nothing to do on that front:
"Until I get a chance to talk to Donovan and I go through the scenario with him, I really can't share it with the public," Shanahan reportedly told a 7-year-old boy who asked if McNabb would return to Washington.
It still appears that the better option would be for the Redskins to trade him when they can, but will he just have the same issues with his new team? If he went to the Vikings, a place many speculate about, Christian Ponder is the future there and McNabb would just be stopgap and a future problem.
