A couple of topsy-turvy situations that involve NFL quarterbacks are soon to be clarified. If reports from the three sportsâ€™ giants (NFL Network, ESPN and FOXSports) are true, Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb is soon headed with the Vikings. This will come to reality after he agreed to restructure a contract amounting to eight figures this 2011. Washington on the other hand will have to get two draft picks. This will include a sixth rounder in 2012 and one more conditional draft pick.
McNabb was acquired by the Redskins during last yearâ€™s draft. This was perhaps his worst season as an NFL starter and he obviously struggled throughout the season. During the final three games, McNabb was benched and Coach Mike Shanahan considered QB Rex Grossman. However, McNabbâ€™s contract with the Redskins is $78 million for five years. Washington has the option to withdraw now after they have paid McNabb $3.5 million. The trade is quite a hefty amount unless he agreed to bargain. In the 2011 draft picks, the Vikings picked QB Christian Ponder on the 12th. If McNabb is acquired, Ponder will have the time to adjust to the NFL and Shanahanâ€™s Redskins on the other hand will most likely go on with QBâ€™s John Beck and Grossman who apparently is signing again with the team.
