Redskins general manager Bruce Allen talked about Donovan McNabb's lingering contract extension issues today and reaffirmed that the team hopes to give him a long-term contract. However, Allen added that he is not sure when that will happen because of the unsigned status of Carlos Rogers and first-round pick Trent Williams.
"Donovan is a priority to us," Allen said. "He has been everything we wanted when we traded for him-and then some. But I don't know how to put a date on it. The first thing is to make sure that everyone who is unsigned gets signed this year."
McNabb is currently in the final year of his contract, so he could go to another team if he is not able to work anything out with the Redskins.
