Breaking News: McNabb to the Redskins
The move comes as somewhat of a surprise as the Eagles send their franchise quarterback to their NFC East divisional rivals, but as Glazer reports, Eagles head coach Andy Reid wanted "to do right by Donovan" and send him to a contender.
Ever since the Eagles began entertaining offers for McNabb, the Raiders have been the team most discussed as a possible destination for McNabb. Last week, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that a McNabb-to-Oakland trade was inevitable.
It's believed the Raiders' offer was their second round pick, 39th overall.
Besides McNabb, the Raiders have been searching for another quarterback to add to the stable of Bruce Gradkowski, JaMarcus Russell, and Charlie Frye. It's been rumored that the Raiders have taken a look at Vikings quarterback Sage Rosenfels and restricted free agent Troy Smith.
It's possible that the deal fell through with the Raiders because of McNabb's desire to play for a contender, and also, with 2010 being a contract year for McNabb, the Raiders might not have wanted to gamble a second round pick for a possible one-year player.
