Can’t blame McNabb for wanting to get out of DC as soon as possible.
This is the equal to a rapper coming out with a hot single in the summer, the buzz is high, but then the label didn’t market the album correctly, buried the artist, give him bad released date and then the songs on the album are average at best.
McNabb is Soulja Boy.
After the season, McNabb is planning to meet with the Redskins and ask them for his release. McNabb wants to be in a position where he can pick the place to finish his career, not have it dictated to him as was the case last season when Philadelphia traded him to Washington.
It’s highly unlikely the Redskins initially would release McNabb, not when they believe he still has some trade value. Washington would want to recoup as much as possible for the player whom they surrendered second- and fourth-round picks.
McNabb will be owed 10 million if he is traded and I can’t see any team wanting to give up draft picks and pay McNabb. He maybe an upgrade in some situations, but he isn’t going to change an awful franchise by himself.
The Redskins should release him as soon as possible, but it is more likely they will hold on to head and make him twist in the wind.
