Report: McNabb Traded to Minnesota

Report: McNabb Traded to Minnesota

Five for two sixths? That's the story according to Jay Glazer, who reports that the Redskins have agreed to ship Donovan McNabb to the Vikings for a sixth round pick in the 2012 draft, and possibly a conditional sixth round pick in 2013. Glazer adds that the deal is contingent upon McNabb agreeing to terms on a new deal with Minnesota.

You don't think McNabb's value has plummeted? The Eagles traded McNabb to Washington in April 2010 for a second round pick last year (Nate Allen) and a fourth rounder this year (Casey Matthews).

Considering the fact the Vikes just used the 12th overall pick on Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder, McNabb should probably rent, not buy, in Minneapolis.
