Donovan McNabb Trade Rumors: Is Vikings TE Visanthe Shiancoe Recruiting Him?

The Donovan McNabb trade rumors will remain at least until the Minnesota Vikings draft a quarterback in this year’s NFL Draft or the Washington Redskins somehow explicitly say that he isn’t being traded. Until then, it looks like everyone will weigh in on the hottest NFL trade rumor of the season.

Even Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe.

Shiancoe was recently on Washington D.C. based Comcast SportsNet’s Washington Post Live with Ivan Carter where he talked about what he’s doing during the NFL lockout and a football camp he’s putting on at Morgan State. Oh, and the McNabb trade rumors.

"You know what, as a matter of fact, I seen him out the other day, and we had a little alcohol talk, should I say, a little alcohol talk," Shiancoe told Carter (as transcribed by Dan Steinberg). "And I told him, ‘Hey, look , you know, Minnesota might be a good fit for you. I think that he would probably agree on that. Who knows if he wants to stay here anymore, right, being in those circumstances? I don’t know if he wants to or not, but I wouldn’t want to stay here. Speaking for myself, I wouldn’t want to stay in this predicament right here."

I’m not sure what "alcohol talk" is, but it seems like Shiancoe wouldn’t mind having McNabb throwing to him whenever the 2011 NFL season begins.
