    @Adam_Schefter: Filed to ESPN: Donovan McNabb has been traded to the Washington Redskins. Compensation still unknown. But McNabb's a Redskin.

    OK...let's guess the compensation....You have to figure it's significant with a star QB (regardless of age) being traded to a division rival...you just don't see that.....really, ever.....I'm going to guess a 2nd rounder this year PLUS next year's Skins first rounder.

    ESPN is saying it is believed to be this years 2nd rounder. It has been said for a couple weeks that the Eagles were looking for a top 40 pick. The Skins pick 37. I could see maybe a 3rd this year and next years 2nd, but I doubt a 1st is involved

    this years 2nd rounder (37 overall) and next years 3rd or 4th depending on performance.

    seems like a low price to pay for an in-division trade like that IMO

    except they're throwing Campbell out with the bath water.

    so in effect they are giving up on their first round QB in 2005

    They said that McNabb's $11.5 mil contrat scared most teams off, and most didn't want to give up a ton for a 1 year player. He is a FA after this season, and if the Skins were the only team willing to give up a 2nd, the Eagles are smart for taking the best offer no matter who it was with

    Donovan McNabb is headed to the Redskins

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on April 4, 2010 8:12 PM ET

    So much for the Washington Redskins' quiet offseason.

    In an insanely gutsy move, the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to trade Donovan McNabb to Washington, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This is not a belated April Fool's joke.

    The Eagles have quickly confirmed the move. Philadelphia will receive the No. 37 overall pick in the 2010 draft and either a third or fourth round pick in 2011.

    We heard some big name veterans mentioned in rumors Saturday like Albert Haynesworth and LaRon Landry, but the deal didn't turn out that spicy. Jay Glazer first mentioned the Redskins' interest in McNabb Saturday.

    The move is reminiscent of New England's trade of Drew Bledsoe to the Bills. Not only do the Eagles not want McNabb, they are confident they can beat him twice a year.

    The Redskins were clearly offering the best deal, but Philadelphia's amazing confidence in Kevin Kolb made this deal possible. Andy Reid and G.M. Howie Roseman better be right.

    This is going to be fun.

    I guess they think they can win now; I sure as hell don't think they can. But now they have a decent QB

    Safe to say that the Redskins will not be drafting a QB.

    The Eagles do have a personal workout set up with Eric Berry.

    I was wondering why the other day, I think they could package their 2 picks and move up.

    Report: If traded to the Raiders, Donovan McNabb would have retired
    Posted by Mike Florio on April 5, 2010 12:26 PM ET
    A week ago, the Raiders were regarded as the favorites to land Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb. According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, however, McNabb intended to never play for the Raiders.

    Per Cole, McNabb made it known to the Eagles through McNabb's associates that McNabb would retire if traded to Oakland.

    "He has plenty of money," a source close to McNabb told Cole. "He's not doing anything he doesn't want to do."

    While McNabb would have given up $11.2 million in 2010 compensation if he had retired, the Raiders would have not been able to collect money previously paid to McNabb, like the Bucs ultimately did with Jake Plummer several years ago. The signing bonus proration on McNabb's 2002 extension concluded in 2009, and his "financial apology" from last year did not include (as far as we can tell) a signing bonus, which is the only form of compensation that can be recovered if a player retires with years remaining on the proration.

    ^^^ awesome story, McNabb is obviously cooler than I thought.

    I can't wait until the Redskins beat the Eagles this season. I'm so gonna tune in for Philly sports radio talk, it's gonna be off the charts awesome.

    With news of him saying he'd retire I almost wish he was now.

    Oakland would have given up picks for nothing. :lol:
