article imageDonovan McNabb traded to Washington Redskins

By Michael Bearak     Apr 4, 2010 in Sports
The Philadelphia Eagles have reportedly traded their quarterback to the Washington Redskins. While details of the trade have not been fully disclosed, it does involve future draft picks.
Trade rumors have been circulating around Donovan McNabb being traded to another team, most notably the Oakland Raiders. Sunday it has been reported that McNabb has been traded to NFC-East rival, Washington Redskins.
Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Eagles will get a second-round pick in the 2010 draft, followed by either a third or fourth round pick in the 2011 draft. The language still has to be finalized by the two sides.
The trade means that both the Eagles and the Redskins will have new starting quarterbacks this year. The Redskins will have the 11-year veteran, who was booed on draft day, who starts for only his second team of his career.
For the Eagles the reins will be turned over to Kevin Kolb with Michael Vick serving as back-up.
Eagles Coach Andy Reid said to ESPN: "This was a very tough decision. Donovan McNabb represented everything a football player could be during his 11 seasons in Philadelphia. He carried this organization to new heights and set a high standard of excellence both on and off the field. We thank him for everything he did for this football team and for this city."
