Donovan McNabb linked to Redskins in trade rumors

Earlier Saturday, FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer tweeted that the Redskins inquired about Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb, whom the Philadelphia Eagles apparently are determined to trade. And Glazer emphasized in a follow-up tweet that the Redskins' interest was "more than just mild ... they even talked players."

Glazer, however, did not indicate when the trade talks occurred. If the Redskins did express interest in dealing for McNabb, they probably did so much earlier in the process, a person involved with the situation said Saturday night. Through a team spokesman, the Redskins declined to comment.

The Eagles did not immediately respond to a reporter's email request for comment.

At some point since late February, most teams have probably spoken with the Eagles about McNabb, the source said, adding that there supposedly have been some "imminent" deals involving McNabb, whose rights still belong to the Eagles. Moreover, when a player the stature of McNabb is available, it would be in the best interest of some to attempt to increase his market value by making it known more teams were "seriously interested," whether or not the supposed interest actually existed.

The Redskins clearly are not committed to quarterback Jason Campbell, their starter the past three plus seasons, and current and former high-ranking members of the organization have been aggressively scouting college quarterbacks - Sam Bradford, Jimmy Clausen and Colt McCoy among them - since early during the 2009 season. Coach Mike Shanahan, who runs the Redskins' football operations, is expected to select a quarterback in the April 22-24 draft - likely in the first round, many people who have a stake in the Redskins' plans believe. Could they also trade for McNabb? Of course.

But even if the Eagles were willing to trade McNabb within the division, I'm not sure McNabb is the type of quarterback Shanahan would prefer as he begins the task of trying to restore the Redskins to prominence. And from what we're hearing at Redskins Park these days, Shanahan's vote is the only one that really counts.

Trade the #37 to da iggles for McNabb. Trade next year's first rounder to the ravens for Gaither, Trade back from #4 to some point in the top 12 in this draft. Pick up a third rounder and a fifth rounder. Draft Olmen, Qb of the future, RB of the future, ILB, NT, FS. Championship.

WOW indeed. rickyroge, are you sure your name is not Vinny Cerrato?? Our 4th (what a laugh) AND a player!?!?!?!?!? McNabb is only worth a 3rd at best at this point in his career. And he is not accurate or very mobile.

Hopefully this is just more due diligence on Shanny's part. If Bradford is there at 4 take him. If Okung is there at 4 take him. If neither is available, do your best to trade down - Baltimore - Gaither & their 1st for our #4, for example.

Yeah I gotta agree. Rickyroge, that's way way way too much to give up for McNabb, or for any player for that matter, except maybe to move up and get Bradford we would have to give up a lot more.

As far as McNabb and Gaither goes, let's give our scouting guys a chance. Vinny didn't listen to his scouts. Let's hold onto, or increase picks, and build the right way. McNabb is declining....giving up a #4 for him would be something Vinny, or the Raiders, would do.

Skins are in great draft position if they play it right...

You can look to trade down if someone is willing to dance. You can pick up a couple of extra picks, get a LT in the first round, McCoy and a LB in the 2nd.

I don't know what to make of this rumor. I read the blog-line and was expecting the rumor to come from someone like Florio or maybe even someone worse - like LaCanfora. But Glazer is usually on the money.

Anyway, I think trading ANY high-round picks for McNabb would be a waste for the Skins. I hope the CSN report is correct that this is total baloney b/c if the thought of trading for McNabb even crossed the mind of Shallen, I'd start to have some real concerns about our new FO.

I'm a little confused. I thought you were in the camp of getting rid of JC sooner than later. I might wrong in that thought. For argument sake, if they did trade for McNabb I would think JC would be trading JC before he becomes a FA next year.

i think McNabb is a great guy, always liked him, 'cept when he was beatin' on the Skins, but trading for him is a step back, or a step sideways, at best.

besides, put me in the camp that sez no way the Iggs trade him in the conference, much less the division.

i could see him goin' to Oakland,even Seattle makes a good argument.

but here? DC?

I am for getting rid of JC sooner rather than later, but not at the expense of giving up picks to make that happen - which would inevitably be the case if we get McNabb.

I'm not a JC apologist, but I don't hate the guy so much that I'd want to spend a 2nd rounder to get rid of him, even if he fetches back a second rounder.

I'd be most in favor of keeping our 2nd rounder, flipping McNabb and the Beagles the birdie, and then trading JC away for another second rounder.

Please don't even entertain thoughts of trading for Donovan McNubb. You want to talk about lazy and ill-prepared quarterbacks. When you need the QB the most, Donovan is simply not ready for the game. After watching him in the Super Bowl, it was obvious he wasn't physically prepared for the game and looked unprepared mentally. He is a big-game choker. And up till two years ago, he telegraphed pass and running plays by how he moved his head. This situation was so noticeable that I could call run or pass just by watching Donovan's head movement! Evidently even the Eagles were on to this because he hasn't had the same propensity. I'm surprised other teams didn't notice this subtle but obvious flaw in his game. Now he is unwilling to lead, unwilling to run with the ball, and is not worth any player in trade and is worth at most a 7th round draft choice as a BACKUP quarterback. If you saw him against Dallas, you'll know how worthless he has become.

I am with those who don't think the Eagles would ever trade McNabb within the division. But if they did . . . . I am a big McNabb fan -- up here in Philly where I live he is sorely underappreciated. I would be fine with giving up CR22 and our second round pick for him and the Eagles 4th round pick (or a deal along those lines). That way we could take Okung at 4th (if he is there) and put off the QB question for at least a season or two. McNabb is not as mobile as he once was but he is a great veteran leader and has at least 4 more good years in him. As for what he has won, how about a ton of football games for a franchise that was pretty terrible over several decades (with very occassional flashes of okay-ness) before he arrived. Not sure what the stuff is about McNabb not fitting Shanahan's system. How about some specifics on that?

Please don't even entertain thoughts of trading for Donovan McNubb. You want to talk about lazy and ill-prepared quarterbacks. When you need the QB the most, Donovan is simply not ready for the game. After watching him in the Super Bowl, it was obvious he wasn't physically prepared for the game and looked unprepared mentally. He is a big-game choker. And up till two years ago, he telegraphed pass and running plays by how he moved his head. This situation was so noticeable that I could call run or pass just by watching Donovan's head movement! Evidently even the Eagles were on to this because he hasn't had the same propensity. I'm surprised other teams didn't notice this subtle but obvious flaw in his game. Now he is unwilling to lead, unwilling to run with the ball, and is not worth any player in trade and is worth at most a 7th round draft choice as a BACKUP quarterback. If you saw him against Dallas, you'll know how worthless he has become.

Posted by: laserwizard | April 3, 2010 9:02 PM

If the Skins got McNabb they would learn to loath him the way Eagle fans do. Eagle fans have been for getting rid of McNabb for a couple of years now. He is terrible throwing the short stuff, goes into long stretches where he throws pass after pass into the turf, and seldom comes up big in a big game. But the worst thing is he's a prima donna. If the Skins get McNabb I'll be canceling my NFL Sunday Ticket and writing off football.

McNabb trade ain't gonna happen. If it does I would be shocked, but still supportive of the Skins decisions and whatever Shanahan's game plan is. A trade for McNabb obviously would not involve giving up the 4th overall pick, straight up...like some idiot suggested earlier. It would be for the 36th pick (our second rounder). Buffalo and Oakland have already offered their 2nd round. Eagles haven't traded him yet to either one of those teams because McNabb obviously doesn't want to play there. But he would consider playing in DC I'm sure. But that pipe dream is simply that.

But this deal could be suite this trade below were to happen-

Swap 1st round picks. Give Carlos Rogers, get there 2nd round. Win- win for both.

This year's draft is deep at O-linemen. Pick up Flozel Adams, stack up on other FA's during the remainder offseason. Stack up that O-line something serious.

Pick up Safety Berry (if he were to fall that far in the draft) and get all o-linemen in the remainder of the draft, maybe pickup Tony Pike in the 5th round.

Not a bad dream, but surely impossible.

Its an amazing record, yet the fans are ready to see him leave. That's nuts.

QBs like McNabb are good because they have been in the same system year after year after year.

I can't believe folks are falling for this Donovan McNabb stuff. People who read this blog regularly know Jason Reid's mantra. It appears in every third post he puts up here: "Mike Shanahan wants to 'raise' a quarterback." He can't 'raise' Donovan McNabb. Donovan McNabb's done been raised, even brought back from the dead.

Only real question left about a 'raisable' qb is whether we trade up for Bradford, take Clausen, or wait for McCoy in the second round. Or *smokescreen!* pick a guy who Shanahan has never even met but has watched on film for about a thousand hours.

If shanahan trades for mcnabb that would also be dumb he is 33yrs old and has more injuries over the yrs than campbell and throws alot of passes low. If allen and shanahan don't start fixing the o-line this year thru the draft they are complete FRAUDS and you can look for many more losses this season. picking up flozell adams as some suggested would also be foolish he is finished as a LT too slow and gets alot of dumb penalities.

Jaguars fall short on season-ticket renewal goal

Posted by Michael David Smith on April 4, 2010 9:49 AM ET

The Jacksonville Jaguars set a goal this offseason of getting at least 80 percent of last year's season ticket holders to renew for this year by the end of March.

The end of March has come and gone, and the Jaguars fell short.

WJXT in Jacksonville is reporting that the team did not meet its 80 percent goal, noting that if the franchise is going to stay in Jacksonville, it's going to need a bigger fan base than it has right now.

The Jaguars recently announced that they're extending their "30/30 Plan," which allows fans to purchase three years of season tickets at 2010 prices, with a 30-month, interest-free payment plan.

The Jaguars cited "overwhelming public response" as the reason for extending the plan. But the reality is that the Jaguars' ticket sales continue to be underwhelming.

Posted by Mike Florio on April 4, 2010 7:12 AM ET

From time to time, we explain the dangers of allowing former players of a given franchise to chime in on the personnel decisions of the team for which they played.

On Saturday, we addressed the specific perils of Bills quarterback Jim Kelly's decision to make public recommendations regarding whether Tim Tebow should receive an invitation to live and work in Buffalo.

Said a high-level scout in response, "Guys like me that have committed our lives to our craft thank you, seriously. We desert our families and work our butts off to have clowns like this make a mockery of what we do."

Still, we realize former players love the limelight. Whether it's scouting or acting or, in the case of some current players, ballroom dancing, they think that everything will come to them as naturally and easily as the sport for which they received an excessive abundance of God-given skill.

When it comes to scouting (and, for that matter, acting), the player simply can't expect to show up and do it well. Even those who have a genuine aptitude for it, like Ravens G.M. Ozzie Newsome, have to spend years working at it, doing the thankless parts of the job -- the stuff that many former players would find either uninteresting or beneath them.

Does Jim Kelly potentially have something of value to add to the Bills? Sure. Is it in the realm of picking players? Hell no.

The sooner Bills fans figure that out -- and the sooner the powers-that-be who are running the team explain it to him -- the better off the franchise will be.

Hard to argue with this logic...

"Donovan McNabb linked to Redskins in trade rumors"

Adding D McNabb is poor subtraction when you take into account what the team would have to give away to get him.

The better--again--is not getting McNabb, but moving J Campbell for picks.

The skins could use additional picks as a rebuilding team needs options, not a singular media personality/quality quarterback in the likes of McNabb.

If anyone thinks JC took a beating behind our O Line last year, what do you think will happen to McNabb? Even if we draft OL first, the line will still be a work in progress.

I think McNabb would throw the ball to an open receiver rather than take the hits that JC took. But exactly who do you think that the 'Skins should put at QB given your pessimism about the O line? Which QB is well suited for what you see as taking an inordinate number of sacks?

Mind you, I hope they don't trade for him and think this is just noise, but McNabb has a better chance of "winning it all" than anyone else whose name has come up.

Let's can the idea of getting McNabb; ain't gonna happen. But even if we had interest and the Eagles were willing to deal, he's not worth more than a 3rd at most. Any thought of getting McNabb is of the Synder/Cerrato mindset. They would give up 2 number ones, a truckload of cash, pick the guy up in Synder's plane, pay him a ransom in salary and bonuses, buy him a mansion, and tell him not to report until the first game of the season. We don't want McNabb. Don't need him. I want to see Shanny "grow" Redskins, not pick up other teams' castaways as we've done in the past.

The big question is, how good is Kolb? He looked pretty good in the two games he played last year when McNabb was hurt. Plus, Philly fans are tired of his shortcomings both on and off the field. As a Redskin fan in the Philly area I can tell you, you don't want McNabb.

Mortgaging the future for either McNabb or Bradford would make perfect sense... IF we were an otherwise-complete team, missing just that one crucial component (an NFL-caliber-plus QB) to make that SB run. We're not. Nor are we even close.

I believe some of what will determine Shannallen's decision re OL v. QB in this draft will come down to how patient they believe Snyder can be. I assume Shannallen's @ least as brilliant as the prevailing sentiment here on RI - that our priority should be upgrading the OL in general, OT specifically, and that, if available, Okung would be the pick @ #4. However, such a move won't result in the sort of dramatic improvement for which Snyder's so hungry. That would come some time after the 2011 draft and its supposedly QB-rich class.

If Shannallen feel Snyder may not give them the 3+/- yrs it would take to put that all together and see meaningful results, they may feel more compelled to make the dramatic happen sooner. I realize this would be a strategic mistake, but after 10 years of mostly horrid personnel moves, can you blame me if I still fear Snyder's idiotic influence?

Let's just hope Snyder really is content to take a back seat in these matters and has learned the art of patience.

Don't draft this ..don't draft that...too early ...too late...bust..

Fair to say these are words and phrases used a whole bunch on this blog and loosely at that. Everyone acts like a GM on here and expects immediate success or they cry BUST!

Came across this article and I found it very good for that subject.

"Drafting is a very inexact science. The best scouts in the business have a laundry list of players they miscalculated or projected poorly on their resumes. Crystal balls don’t come with guarantees and are non-refundable."

"Too many fans seem to expect a team with seven draft picks will find long-term starters in the fourth, fifth, sixth and even seventh rounds. It’s hard to talk draft batting averages because we’re talking about a target that moves more than any breaking ball. A first-round hit is different than a fourth-round hit is different than a sixth-round hit."

"Drop Brian Cushing in the lineup at the start and you can get 18 tackles in his first two games. Drop Eugene Monroe into an opener at Indianapolis and you get big quarterback pressure on the game’s crucial snap from Dwight Freeney."

"Some guys who are going to be good players are not good players right away, and sometimes expectations are simply too high."

"Factor in system, need, a player’s learning curve, the team’s philosophy and history regarding rookie playing time and you get a better sense. Will injuries create room for Austin Collie and Jerraud Powers to play well beyond most people’s first-year expectations? Or does an insufficient roster prompt game action too soon for Ryan Mouton to handle?"

Could this be a tie-in with the Rams to get Bradford? The Redskins get McNabb and extend him to a long contract, because the Rams can't do it. The Redskins then trade McNabb to the Rams and take the huge cap hit, and the Rams swap picks with Washington in the first round so that Washington can take Bradford.

In a best case scenario the #4 pick was going to be a left tackle (hopefully Okung) and everybody was Ok with the Skins using the 2 round pick on a Quarterback (i.e. McCoy, Tebow, etc.). There was no guarantee that Pick #37 would develop into a starter in the NFL, the idea was to allow the kid to hold a clip board for a while. Now the 2nd round pick has not only turned out to be a starter on the team but also a pro-bowl player. Gentlemen we now have what we’ve been searching for a proven legitimate franchise quarterback.
