Offseason

Eagles Trade McNabb to Redskins

After 11 years with the Philadelphia Eagles—during which he led them to five NFC championship games and a Super Bowl appearance– quarterback Donovan McNabb has been traded to the rival Washington Redskins. The move is a big surprise, as McNabb has long played a central role as the leader of the Eagles offense. "You can't say that we didn't think about that," Eagles coach Andy Reid said, but added that the trade was best for the team. Clearly the move wasn’t due to McNabb’s performance: he threw for 3,553 yards and 22 touchdowns with 10 interceptions in 14 games last season, and with a passer rating of 92.9 (third highest in his career), he led the Eagles to the playoffs. It could mean trouble for current Redskins starter Jason Campbell. McNabb, 33, said he looks forward to working with his new coach, who has a few Super Bowl wins on his resume.
