The Philadelphia Eagles have reportedly agreed to send quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins for the 37th overall selection in this year’s draft and a third- or fourth-round pick next year.
This is somewhat surprising, because I wasn’t expecting the Eagles to dump their veteran signal caller to a division rival. But reports were strong that the Redskins – head coach Mike Shanahan in particular – were looking to acquire a new quarterback.
As the Kevin Kolb (or Michael Vick?) era begins in Philadelphia, the Seahawks’ draft plans may be altered come April 22nd. The Washington Redskins were rumored to have interest in drafting a quarterback, but further additions are unlikely with McNabb on the roster.
With a new quarterback, the Washington Redskins will probably look to address their offensive line. Unfortunately for Seattle, this means one more premier tackle leaves the board before they draft sixth overall. Bradford taken number one is good for Seattle, in my opinion; Clausen and Bradford both selected in the top five is a great scenario.
