Less than 24 hours removed from the biggest blockbuster of the offseason, the Washingon Redskins are wasting no time.

Having traded a second round pick in this years pick, along with a condontional pick next year, the Redskins have found the closest quarterback that can lead them to a Super Bowl.

What is next for both Washington and McNabb? A contract extension, which is already beginning the process.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, both sides have begun talking a contract extension, sources have said.

My immediate thinking when I hear contract extension is probably about a three-year deal, with fours years being the maximum.

McNabb is currently 33 years old, and with Bruce Allen now handling the finances, it is unlikely they will dump a boat load of cash unless they know McNabb can perform well into his late 30's.

As of this moment, everything certainly seems well in the Nations Capitol.

A new quarterback has been found, and the Redskins won't take to long to ensure the fan base that McNabb will be there for quite some time.
