Donovan McNabb, after an uninspired short tenure with the Minnesota Vikings, has officially been released from the team at his request.
Well, the man did just turn 35 years old, which is younger than Minnesota's QB from 2010, Brett Favre. The Vikings have since gone much younger by giving the nod to rookie QB Christian Ponder, who's played rather well for having limited time to prepare.
As for McNabb, sure, there are some teams who could use his experience, but why bother? First, the Redskins get him for a year and then Minnesota boots him after around a half year's work. He was unproductive at both stops.
He's been given more than one chance to revive his career, but it just hasn't worked out. In his last 19 games, McNabb has thrown 18 TDs to 17 INTs, so from a rookie's perspective that's not bad. However, he's a seasoned vet and has underachieved.
It's time for washed-up McNabb to give it up for good because anyone who gives him another shot is just wasting time.
