Donovan McNabb Traded To Minnesota Vikings, Pending McNabb Contract Restructure, According To Report

The Washington Redskins are finally closing in on completing a Donovan McNabb trade with the Minnesota Vikings. The two teams have agreed to trade McNabb to Minnesota for a sixth-round pick in 2012 and a conditional sixth-round pick in 2013, according to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer. The only step left now is for McNabb to agree to restructure his contract.

Glazer reports that McNabb will have to settle for "much less $$," though he doesn't elaborate. On ESPN earlier, John Clayton suggested the Vikings want McNabb to accept a one-year contract, but that is only a report. As for the draft pick, Glazer reports the 2013 one is contingent on McNabb passing some performance incentives next season.

The contract thing remains a major issue, so it's possible this could get dragged out. However, it looks like it's only a matter of hours until the disastrous McNabb era ends in D.C. The Redskins clearly won't get anywhere close to equal value after the feud between McNabb and Mike and Kyle Shanahan last season.
