NFL Trade Rumors: Donovan McNabb Ruled out for Arizona Cardinals
McNabb's Options Dwindle As Age Creeps Up On Him
Donovan McNabb was not the answer in Washington after Philadelphia deemed his usefulness to them was over. Now it seems the team in the town he calls home officially is closing the door on any possibility of a trade.
The Arizona Cardinals, who have said they are in the market for a veteran quarterback, indicated on Thursday they had no interest in McNabb.
The Redskins are expected to release McNabb this off-season, but the Cardinals aren't interested. Despite his unknown future, McNabb said this has not been a stressful time for him. "The next couple years, we'll see what happens," he said. "Who knows where I'll be anyway? I'm looking forward to that and when that time comes, step in there and be ready to go . . . "
McNabb is not stressed out because he signed a new contract after his benching last fall, and even in a worst-case scenario where he gets cut, he should be financially set for life.
Besides, at some point some team in the league will be desperate for a quarterback, and they will come knocking on McNabb’s door.
At age 34, though, McNabb’s best years definitely are behind him and his work ethic has been questioned. Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid did not trade McNabb away last year on a lark, he knew it was time to move on.
