NFL Trade Speculation: 5 Teams Donovan McNabb Could Lead to a Super Bowl
Even though Donovan McNabb struggled in 2010, he is still one of the best quarterbacks in the league. His accuracy may be diminishing, but he has a rocket arm and needs to be surrounded with weapons.
With Washington, McNabb had a below average offensive line and not many consistent targets.
McNabb was benched late in the season by Mike Shanahan, so a return to the Redskins seems unlikely.
There will be teams lobbying to acquire McNabb's services in hope of rising to a Super Bowl contender, here are five of them.

Some may laugh at calling the Raiders Super Bowl contenders, but with the addition of McNabb, that could be made possible.
The Raiders have an elite running back and a strong group of receivers with game breaking speed. Combined with McNabb's strong arm, the receivers could beat the secondaries with fly patterns all game long.
Jason Campbell had an up and down year, so McNabb could bring stability to the offense and be a leader for the Raiders.

The Cardinals seem certain to try to catch a veteran quarterback like McNabb.
There are many reports that Arizona will pass on Blaine Gabbert at number five overall if he is on the board.
Ken Whisenhunt has one more season to prove he can lead a team, otherwise he will be yanked. Whisenhunt would certainly trust a veteran like McNabb over young guys like John Skelton or potentially Blaine Gabbert.
McNabb throwing to Fitzgerald would be one of the best quarterback-wide receiver combinations in the league.
The Cardinals were a better team than their record indicates because of the number of guys who underperformed.
The addition of McNabb could jumpstart the entire roster, and in a weak NFC West, the Cardinals could certainly make some noise.

With Chris Johnson, the Titans have an explosive offense. If they could acquire a legitimate quarterback like McNabb, the offense could be taken to new heights.
Behind a strong offensive line, McNabb could finally be a threat for the Titans at quarterback, something they have lacked for a while.
With a solid defense, and weapons like Kenny Britt, the Titans could be a surprising team next year with McNabb at the helm.

The Dolphins do not have a huge amount of needs, other than a gaping hole at the quarterback position.
Chad Henne may never develop into a consistent performer, so McNabb could be the answer at a position in which the Dolphins have not solved since Dan Marino.
With McNabb, Marshall, and most likely DeAngelo Williams, who recently stated he wants to play with the Dolphins in 2011, the Dolphins could be a sleeper team next season.

The Vikings have been the team most linked to McNabb, and it would make all the sense in the world.
The Vikings cannot suffer through a season with Joe Webb at quarterback, and they have a small window of opportunity to win a Super Bowl, especially with an aging defense.
Leslie Frazier has ties with McNabb since his Philly days.
The Vikings would be smart not to let go of this opportunity to acquire an above average quarterback to potentially lead them to a Super Bowl.
