Donovan McNabb traded to Redskins

New, comments

It's the moment we've been waiting for all offseason... The Eagles have traded Donovan McNabb, but they've done so to a team that pretty much no one saw coming. The division rival Washington Redskins. That mean Donovan McNabb will be back as an opponent twice year for the forseeable future.

Wow.

The Eagles will receive the Redskins' second round pick this year(37th overall) and a 3rd or 4th round pick next year depending on certain conditions. Sal Pal is reporting that the picks are contingent on McNabb's play

Pretty amazing stuff. Obviously let's just discuss our reactions. I think we all knew McNabb was gone, but how do you feel about seeing him twice a year?

I guess my first reaction is that it doesn't seem like the Eagles brass thinks too much of McNabb at this point to risk dealing him to a division rival. Either way, that first game back in Philly is going to be EPIC!

Interesting to see this done on a Sunday where baseball season is about to get underway... because the Eagles just blew the Phillies' coverage out of the water for the next several weeks... Makes you wonder.
