DONOVAN MCNABB GOES OVER TO THE VIKINGS
Mon, 01 Aug 2011 02:43 PM EDT

All three parties i.e. Donovan McNabb, The Vikings and the Redskins have finally come to an agreement for the veteran quarterback who will be traded over to Minnesota according to a source that spoke to ESPN. According to the source the trade will be officially announced on Thursday. In addition the source says that the trade includes a 2012 sixth round draft pick as well as a conditional pick in the sixth round of the pick in 2013. The Redskins have been eyeing the fifth and seventh round picks for Minnesota. Odds

McNabb agreed to go forth and restructure the five year and $78 million deal which he signed with the Redskins since the Vikings do not have enough funds to pay him. The terms for the new deal were not immediately available. The arrival of McNabb in Minnesota has often been rumored for the past five years back in Brad Childress had left Philadelphia Eagles in order to take over the Vikings in 2006. Scores

Now even though Childress is long gone it was another Eagles assistant which is the new Vikings coach which i.e. Leslie Frazier who helped make this a reality which is just in time for McNabb to bridge the gap from being Brett Favre to the rookie Christian Ponder. McNabb now gives the Viking a veteran quarterback while they now groom Pounder who was the 12th overall draft pick from Florida State back in April in order to be the team’s long term strategy for this position. The original preference for Fraizer as well as the Vikings was to get Ponder a start on Week 1 in San Diego with a veteran backup in case. Las Vegas odds

But this was prior to the NFL lockout which has prevented players from working with their coaches all this summer which has put Ponder behind his schedule in development. That has made it more important for the Vikings to add yet another accomplished and expereineced quarterback they think can win them games with the roster full of vets while Ponder gets to learn the ropes.

On his Twitter page on Wednesday Ponder wrote “Excited to have McNabb join,” “Will learn a lot from a Pro Bowler. But that doesn’t mean I’m not still fighting to start week 1!”
