McNabb Due a $6.2 Million Bonus in May


Although the Donovan McNabb talks and rumors have already been run repeatedly across the sports network, an interesting fact regarding the veteran Quarterback's contract was dissected a few days ago. According to released information/details of the restructured deal McNabb received in the offseason prior to the 2009 campaign, the 11-year passer is due for a $6.2 million bonus payment on May 5th. And while the date of the scheduled swap of money was supposedly not intentionally placed later in the offseason, it could potentially indicate that the Eagles effectively have up until this day to decide on their QB situation for 2010 and beyond. Of course, they could always end up paying McNabb (pictured) his bonus and getting rid of him following May 5th, but it seems unlikely.

Basically, the release of this information doesn't guarantee anything, but it does hint that it if the Eagles do indeed trade, release, or get rid of McNabb some way or another, it will probably be prior to the May 5th date, so that they do not have to dish out an extra $6.2 million. Until then, however, we can only assume the Syracuse product and 5-time Pro-Bowler will be the team's starting Quarterback next season, for that is what the organization has already assured.
