Twice in the last two weeks Donovan McNabb and the Minnesota Vikings have been linked as potential dance partners for the 2011 NFL season. The Vikings are indeed one of the teams interested in McNabb, according to two people with knowledge of the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity. But obviously, no deal could be made until there is a new collective bargaining agreement.
One league source said none of the teams interested in McNabb is expected to want to offer much for the 34-year-old quarterback, not because they doubt his skills but because the Redskins already tipped their hand that McNabb doesn’t have a future in Washington.
It’s believed that whenever the lockout ends, the Redskins will have to cooperate with the McNabb on a destination because it is expected that they will have to get him to rework the contract he signed last November.
While this is all still just speculation, a Vikings/McNabb pairing would be a good fantasy fit. Percy Harvin, Adrian Peterson & perhaps Sidney Rice would do well to have a veteran QB under center & Donovan McNabb should be able to rejuvenate his career behind a respectable offensive line.
