Vikings Will Release McNabb

December 1, 2011 by Nick in FREE AGENTS

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that McNabb will be released today by the Minnesota Vikings.  It’s been routinely rumored that McNabb could ask for his release now that Christian Ponder has taken over as the Vikings starting quarterback.

With all the QB injuries in the NFL recently teams like the Bears and Texas are badly in need of a starting QB.  It wouldn’t be a surprise to see McNabb starting in a week or two for either team.  McNabb to the Bears has been highly rumored since McNabb’s days as an Eagle.

Both teams mentioned above have a legitimate shot of making the playoffs too.  The only losers in this situation is the Vikings who traded for McNabb and get nothing in return for the experiment.

*UPDATE*

The Vikings have officially waived McNabb.  Frazier announced: “I had a discussion with him and we both agreed mutually that this was the best decision for both parties,” Frazier said, via the team’s web site. “He was and has been a great player for our league for a long, long time. I have a lot of affection and love for Donovan. A tremendous person and a tremendous competitor, and we really wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors. He did a good job for us here. He really helped our young quarterbacks. He did a good job in a lot of ways.”
