Report: Redskins, Donovan McNabb Are "Content" To Finish Season Without A Contract Extension

What a tangled web we weave.

A report from ESPN's Adam Schefter published earlier said that a contract extension between the Washington Redskins and starting quarterback Donovan McNabb isn't expected anytime soon. In a new wrinkle, ESPN 980's Chris Russell tweeted today that talks of an extension might not happen until the season is over.

For those that didn't see Sunday PM, source close to situation says McNabb & Redskins have made no real progress on extension.    

Also that both sides are content w/ playing out season, waiting for new CBA/rules and letting McNabb become a free agent.

Hopefully, contract negotiations don't become a distraction for McNabb and the Redskins, who could claim possession of first place in the NFC East with a Cowboys win over the Giants in this week's Monday Night Football matchup.
