It has been a roller coaster season for the Redskins and some fuel just got added to the fire.

Coach Mike Shanahan has informed quarterback Donovan McNabb that there is no guarantee that he will be playing in Washington in 2011.

"It's obvious that Donovan McNabb will not be in Washington beyond this season," ESPN's Adam Schefter said.

The Redskins traded for McNabb in the offseason and things have not worked out the way the both sides planned.

There is a $10 million option for McNabb that will most likely be declined by the Redskins and No. 5 will become a free agent.

After his performance this season, the market is not likely to be big for McNabb.

McNabb has thrown over 3,300 yards but has 14 touchdowns and 15 interceptions, Uncharacteristic from a quarterback that has had such a successful career.

McNabb has never thrown more interceptions than touchdowns in a single season so he needs to turn things around these last three weeks of a season so he can have a fair market.

The Redskins are 5-8 and in third place in the NFC East.

 

Remaining Schedule:

at Dallas Cowboys

at Jacksonville Jaguars

New York Giants
