McNabb's contract is only worth how well he plays
Eyebrows were raised Monday at FedEx Field as news spread about quarterback Donovan McNabb's five-year contract extension with the Washington Redskins.
The timing of the new deal and its reported value of $40 million guaranteed was surprising because McNabb, who turns 34 next week, has struggled during his first season with the team, was benched late in the recent loss to Detroit and apparently is not proficient in Coach Mike Shanahan's two-minute offense. As it turned out, however, the Redskins' guaranteed commitment to McNabb is only $3.5 million, people familiar with the contract said Tuesday.
