From Favre to McNabb, the Vikings love those veteran quarterbacks

As if the purple-and-yellow didn’t have enough bad veteran play with Brett Favre, here they go again. The Washington Redskins have reportedly agreed to the framework of a trade that would send quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Minnesota Vikings. The Redskins would receive a sixth-round draft pick in 2012 and a conditional pick in 2013 in return.However, the deal is contingent on McNabb restructuring his contract.


The Vikings had long been mentioned as the team with the most interest in McNabb, and the quarterback also had a desire to play for Minnesota, which runs a system that is very similar to the one he ran for 11 seasons in Philadelphia.

Who will be throwing the ball for the Niners next season?

With questions regarding who will be under center next season for the 49ers, I decided to hear your thoughts.

San Francisco has announced that the next starting quarterback is not on the roster. Alex and Troy Smith have not solidified their right to be a starter next season, and the 49ers have the 7th overall pick in the 2011 draft with a new head coach out of a successful college coaching career.

Vernon Davis stated he would not mind catching balls from either Kyle Orton (being replaced by Tim Tebow on the Broncos) or Donovan McNabb (being replaced by anybody on the Redskins). With Michael Vick going off the hinges this year, Kevin Kolb is available from the Eagles. Then there’s the possibility of Matt Leinart, released by the Cardinals, having a chance.

What do you think? Vote below — you can select up to two options.
