Well, it's official, Skins fans. Donovan McNabb has been officially traded to the Minnesota Vikings.

The deal sends a sixth-round 2012 pick to the Redskins along with a sixth-round conditional pick in 2013.

This is just one piece of drama out of D.C. What happens with Albert Haynesworth has still yet to be seen, but this is a lot better than the Redskins just releasing McNabb.

It's not a good flip considering the Skins gave up second- and fourth-round picks up for McNabb, but I would have taken a ham sandwich after last season.
