In a surprise move, the Philadelphia Eagles have traded franchise quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins for draft picks. From ESPN
The Eagles will receive a second-round pick (37th overall) in this month’s NFL draft and either a third- or fourth-round pick next year.
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter was the first to report that McNabb had been dealt to Washington.
“I’m really excited about my future with the Washington Redskins,” McNabb said in a statement Sunday night. “I’m eager to work with Coach [Mike] Shanahan. He’s been a very successful coach with a couple of Super Bowl victories on his resume. While it has been my goal to win a Super Bowl in Philadelphia, we came up short. I enjoyed my 11 years, and know we shared a lot more good times than bad.”
