Trade Talks: Donovan McNabb Headed to the Vikings

"The Redskins have reportedly agreed to the framework of a trade that would send quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Minnesota Vikings. Fox’s Jay Glazer reported the Redskins would receive a sixth-round draft pick in 2012 and a conditional pick in 2013 in return. 

The deal is contingent on McNabb restructuring his contract, Glazer reported.

Neither the Redskins nor anyone in McNabb’s camp could immediately confirm the deal.

The Vikings had long been mentioned as the team with the most interest in McNabb, and the quarterback also had a desire to play for Minnesota, which runs a system that is very similar to the one he ran for 11 seasons in Philadelphia. But it was always believed that in order for a trade to be completed, the quarterback would have to agree to rework his contract.

The Redskins last November gave the six-time Pro Bowl quarterback a contract extension that included a $3.5 million bonus for the 2010 season. They would have had to pay him a $10 million bonus if he still was on the roster the day after the first game of the 2011 season. 

Sources had said earlier this year that McNabb would be willing to rework his deal in order to leave Washington." - read more - via Washington Post
