The speculation can finally end.

In what could be considered as the most talked about potential trade of the offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles have traded six-time Pro Bowl QB Donovan Mcnabb to the Washington Redskins, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter

This comes as a surprise to some, as sources have said recently that the Oakland Raiders were considering trading for the Eagles' starting quarterback.

The Eagles have been contemplating trading McNabb for some time, who has spent his entire 11-year career with the franchise. Though he has lead the team to a handful of NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl, it has been speculated for some time that the Philadelphia Eagles have been wanting to move forward with the development of Kevin Kolb into their quarterback of the future.

Sources say the deal involve the Redskins' second-round pick in the 2010 draft and a third or fourth round pick in 2011. Language of the deal is still to be finalized.

McNabb accumulated almost 33,000 yards in passing in 11 seasons with the Eagles, and racked up 216 touchdowns and 100 interceptions.
