Redskins 'unlikely' to use out clause on McNabb?

Much ado has been made of Donovan McNabb's extension contract with the Washington Redskins. Originally, it had $40 million in guaranteed money (and seemed ridiculously foolish) and later, $3.5 million (which is extremely palpable for the Redskins).

There was also an option in the contract for the Redskins to cut McNabb after 2010 and not owe him any more than the $3.5 million. This was confirmed by McNabb's agent Fletcher Smith to the NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora on Tuesday -- LaCanfora also reports that the Redskins are "virtually certain" not to exercise that right.

This logic makes sense -- the Redskins locked McNabb in at a relatively low-risk extension, particularly for this year, as the additional guaranteed money is water under the bridge. (As is the whole "yeeeeeah, so we benched you in the two-minute drill" awkwardness.)

They also locked in McNabb for next year at a reasonable cost ($13.25 million between a $10 million option bonus, a $750,000 roster bonus and a $2.5 million salary), which is critical considering that Washington has no real quarterback prospect on the horizon.

Maybe those future prospects change, but the Redskins now have a tremendous amount of flexibility whether it involves drafting a future prospect (keep McNabb and develop a youngster), acquiring another veteran (trade McNabb, with his reasonable price tag), or just standing pat.

my bet is they meant "palatable" but it still makes some sense in the original form.The out clause the Skins should be looking to use is Hasletts those defensive schemes he concocted against the Colts and the Eagles have failed spectacularly.

We have to see how the whole thing plays out. The Redskins have some options but i dont see them just giving away money like that. And McNabb will bounce back. But the key thing is if he receives interest from any other club. If he were to go to the Cardinals he would have some more weapons and have a little more freedom. But McNabb will be fine in Washington because he has thick skin and Dan and the crew have seen something in him to bring him there. just wait and see what happens. The team just got blown out and Rex is not the answer at QB either. So stick around and see how they going to handle the off season.

Hey Donovan, come on out here to Arizona we got a spot for ya. I remember another QB everyone said was washed up when he came to Arizona and he seemed to do OK....maybe give Mr. Warner a call and see what he thinks.
