It just gets weirder. Now Jason La Canfora is reporting the Vikings and Redskins have the parameters of a deal in place for Donovan McNabb, and all the remains to make the deal happen is the Vikings working out a restructured contract with McNabb who under his current deal is owed way too much money for any sane team to pay ($12 million or thereabouts).
If this is all a Mike Shanahan ploy, it’s a great ploy that involves using multiple reporters from various outlets as stooges. I think I’m going to have to start believing in the legitimacy of this story. On the surface it still looks like the Vikings would be better off waiting for McNabb to be cut but maybe there’s something here we’re all missing.
Nothing’s confirmed yet obviously and this could still turn out to be baloney. But as of now it looks very possible that the Vikes will open the season with Donovan McNabb at quarterback.
