For the past three weeks, the Philadelphia Eagles made it known that they wish to move into a different direction with the Donovan McNabb era.

Believed to be had for a second round pick, it seemed there were obviously going to be suitors available.

For weeks, the Oakland Raiders were reported as the likely candidate for his services.

However, McNabb will stay within the division, this time as a Washington Redskin.

ESPN insider Adam Schefter broke the news via twitter and ESPN News, that McNabb is now a Redskin.

This comes just a day after quarterback prospect Jimmy Clausen visited the team.

Schefter reports the deal is for a second round pick this year, along with either a third or fourth round pick in compensation.
