Yes, this is a Donovan McNabb post. Some new information has come out today concerning a possible trade involving our Oakland Raiders and the Philadelphia Eagles, something we have discussed on this forum just recently. With that said, I thought this post would be a good clean-up for all current and future posts unless a trade does become official.
The possible deal involves McNabb, of course, and our very own cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. His name has been floating out there and the rumors about that appear to be true. Hit the jump for the new information.
Today, an earlier report from Len Pasquarelli said that "the Raiders would be willing to part with Nnamdi Asomugha in a trade for Donovan McNabb."
Later on, Charles Robinson reported that the Raiders are the favorites in the McNabb sweepstakes.
A third report, just in about 25 minutes go, says that the Eagles are not interested in a trade that would send Asomugha to Philadelphia and McNabb to Oakland.
That's a lot of back and forth information. From that, we can assume Al Davis has legitimate interest in McNabb and that the two sides have discussed at least something in minor detail involving Asomugha.
We've discussed possible trade scenarios before and I think we all know what the pros and cons of McNabb are. He's been a great quarterback over the course of his career when he has been able to stay healthy. He's made the Pro Bowl six times and has led his team to the NFC title game four times including a Super Bowl appearance. Now, though, the quarterback is 33 years old and entering the final year of his contract.
Well, there's only one question left to be asked and I'll let the poll tell you that one if you haven't figured it out already.
Will the Oakland Raiders acquire quarterback Donovan McNabb from the Philadelphia Eagles before the preseason starts?
