Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Vikings are “one of a few teams” that have talked with the Redskins about McNabb.
Any trade would require McNabb to restructure a contract that is scheduled to pay him $12.5 million in 2011.
McNabb previously had been linked to the Vikings, when his former offensive coordinator in Philly, Brad Childress, was the head coach in Minnesota.
And now comes the part where we express skepticism. With Schefter and Redskins coach Mike Shanahan having written a book together, it wouldn’t be all that unreasonable to wonder whether Shanahan leaked this one to Schefter in the hopes of scaring up a trade market when one otherwise doesn’t exist.
*EDIT – It looks like this is a done deal AS LONG as McNabb is willing to restructure his contract. More details will be posted when available.
This is a super exciting move that half of the Vikings fans would love and the other half hate. I happen to be apart of the first half. Assuming we retain Rice, the Vikings could be a contender again this season!
