Donovan McNabb Trade To Minnesota Vikings Likely To Be Complete Wednesday, According To Report

It looks like the Donovan McNabb trade to the Minnesota Vikings will be completed on Wednesday, pending some final details being worked out. The trade, which would net the Washington Redskins a sixth-round pick in 2012 and a conditional sixth-round pick in 2013, is agreed upon, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter on SportsCenter.

As of Tuesday night, the reported hold-up was that McNabb needed to restructure his contract. However, Schefter said on the radio that "finances aren't a problem" with the deal. The issue now is that McNabb, who was not happy in Washington, is concerned about the way he will be ushered in to the Vikings next season. Schefter compared the situation to the NFL labor deal, which took a little extra time to solve because of the manner in which the owners handed the new deal to the players.

The Redskins and McNabb have yet to confirm that the trade has been completed. Stay tuned.
