Re: Where will McNabb land?

Allow me to recast the atmosphere here for a moment...

Which of these scenarios is more preferable for the Redskins?


Scenario #1: McNabb agrees to pay back the ~$3M bonus he got last season (or 90% of it) and gets an immediate release before the CBA expires. Skins get some money back but get no picks or players for McNabb. The drama and the "distractions" are OVER.


Scenario #2: The new CBA is not in force until mid June. There have been no OTAs or minicamps; Bruce Allen has 3 weeks to assemble the team, sign the draftees, figure out whatever the new cap rules are. Any offers he gets for McNabb are strictly "low-ball offers" (conditional 7th round pick). At that point, McNabb offers to pay them back the bonus money for an immediate release.


Scenario #3: The new CBA is not in force until mid-June (or even later) and the Skins start training camp with McNabb, Grossman, Beck and "whatever rookie QB you happen to like most" on the roster. No meaningful offers for McNabb arrive and he is being a compliant player in camp. With no work for the rookie at OTAs or minicamp, there is no way he can start in 2011 (remember it takes a couple of years to grasp the intricacies of the Kyle Shanahan offense). So the Skins keep him around just in case Grossman gets hurt - - and then it is opening day. At that point, the Skins release McNabb to avoid having to pay him $10M+ as their back-up QB.



It seems to me that the realistic choices are "release McNabb" or "trade McNabb". However, to accomplish the second you have to have another team willing to give the Skins something that they think is "fair value" and with other teams scrambling to put their squads together, his "fair value" is likely to go down -not up - if they hold on to him until the season is about to start.


Personally, I would go with Scenario #1...

Re: Where will McNabb land?

I believe McNabb will land in Minnesota. My second guess would be Miami. I don't believe he'll land in Arizona since Fitzgerald threw him under the bus when he was asked if there's any pontenial free-agent QB's he'd like to play with, and he only mentioned Bulger and Kobb.

Re: Where will McNabb land?

[QUOTE=GMScud;786310]I'll be pretty annoyed if we cut him. That would mean a 2nd and a 4th round pick for a guy who got benched twice and won what? 3 or 4 games total? Fail.

We can't trade him until there's a new CBA, so he may be a Redskin well into the summer if a deal can't get done.[/QUOTE

Can't believe we're at this point. Bad trade, a 2nd and a 4th and no long term plans. I've got faith in this new regime but this was not a good move. Our FO should have known enough about DM before the trade to build our team around him. If he wasn't good enough, they should have known and not made the trade. It was a "Vinny-eske" trade.

Personally, I would go with Scenario #1...
Scenario 1 would certainly be the most quiet way to simply part ways, but that would have to happen within the next 4-5 days. Also, that would involve the Redskins totally tucking their tail and saying the ~$3M bonus repayment is all Allen/Shanny need to concede a complete and utter embarrassment of a defeat in the trade. They'd try to put it in the rearview and move forward, but getting absolutely nothing in return for a player in whom they invested so much.... That's a big organizational meltdown right there.

And... wait for it... we still have Haynesworth to deal with.

I really hope Shanahan gets his sh*t together this year and make some smart moves with the team. I know he's had a lot of challenges to overcome, but the McNabb/Haynesworth dramas were not a good way to start his era in Washington. Whatever he does, I hope it starts by finding ways to git rid of these two players.

There needs to be a trade before the draft to whichever team is interested. The Skins' options will be diminished once the teams now have traded for other backups around the league and/or drafted a QB who may have been the best player available on thier board. It could prove to be good insurance but, we're still talking about last years' McNabb, a year older...

Hmm...how much of Minny's interest in Mcdrabb was due to Child Dress chaser wanting him?

No one is trading for Mcnabb and getting stuck with his 8 million dollar roster bonus for next year or whatever the number is. Even in a bidding war in free agency they can get him for much less and not have to give up any picks. Even the contracts we give players that are meant to give us a "way out" end up biting us in the ass.

That must have sounded really funny in your head.
