Now, the only question is whether McNabb can agree to compensation with Minnesota, which is no small hurdle to climb, but one that might be climbed by the time you read this.
So, would this be a good move for the Vikings?
Honestly, I have not been a huge fan of McNabb at any point in his career. I never considered him a true leader, a clutch player, or at times a very accurate passer. He has physical skills for sure, although he clearly doesn't run or isn't as willing to run as he used to.
With all that being said, trading for McNabb and signing him to a new contract would be good for Minnesota, because he will improve several players on the Vikings offense to varying degrees.
