Donovan McNabb to Arizona? Not so fast, one writer says
Will Donovan McNabb end up as the quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals? The notion that McNabb could end up working year-round in the state in which he owns a home and practices in the offseason is always a hot topic of speculation, but at least one blog is shooting it down.
Kent Somers, who covers the Cardinals for the Arizona Republic, says there's never been a factual basis for the chatter. Of course, McNabb still is the property of the Redskins, but if, as many speculate, he is finished in Washington, Somers doesn't see Arizona jumping into the bidding. "Over the last two years, I've asked Cardinals officials numerous times about alleged interest in McNabb," Somers writes. "Each time, they have dismissed it."
McNabb has never played in this offensive system. There are allegations that he's not the hardest working guy in the business.He has no ties to this coaching staff, which doesn't seem to hold him in as high a regard as some fans.
Maybe the Cardinals will show interest this time. They will look to bring in a veteran quarterback next season, and they will be tempted to draft one with their first selection. Maybe McNabb would be a nice bridge to the future. But again, I doubt it happens.
