Redskins Sign QB Donovan McNabb To 5-Year Contract Extension

    Donovan McNabb has reportedly agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Redskins worth $78 million, according to ESPN's Michael Smith. The deal includes $40 million in guaranteed money and could balloon to $88 million total if McNabb secures all the bonuses included. McNabb, 33, was set to become a free agent at the end of the 2010 season -- a possibility that looked more and more likely in recent weeks, especially when McNabb was benched late in a loss at Detroit in favor of Rex Grossman. Instead, McNabb now appears locked in as the Redskins' starting QB for both the present and near future. The Redskins traded a 2010 second-round draft pick and a conditional 2011 pick to Philadelphia in April to secure McNabb's services.

    SoDev Don't tase me, bro!

    Oh snap! Didn't see that coming with recent events. Good for McNugget, and now the skins didn't wast the pick.
  3. Motherhecker.....just about to post it when the freaking site wouldn't load. lol

    Word Dev.....especially after his benching and those pathetic explanations by the Shanahan's.

    Well, crap! I was hoping for my favorite player's sake that he'd get to go to better team next year. Not to mention I don't relish having to face him 2x a year for several years. Happy for him for the money though.
    So does this mean Shanahan is going to Dallas?

    the conditional pick coming from the deal for the 2011 draft is a 3rd rounder if he makes the pro-bowl, i believe a 4th if he does not.

    have to admit i wondered if he would sign an extention in D.C. & from what i hear this offer was on the table since october.
