NFL Trade Rumors: Donovan McNabb To Vikings Is Again Gaining Steam

The NFL trade rumors are back, following a brief lapse due to the lockout, and they have picked right back up when it comes to Donovan McNabb and the Minnesota Vikings. McNabb to Minneapolis was first brought up back in April, which was a fun time for everyone, and now everyone will have a chance to debate if the current Washington Redskins quarterback is better than Christian Ponder and company.

The Vikings are one of a few teams that have had recent discussions with the Redskins front office regarding McNabb, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Just like in April, however, the Vikings must wait until McNabb's contract is restructured before they are able to bring him to the Metrodome.

It isn't an awful thing to think that McNabb might not be a terrible stopgap for the Vikings offense, at least for the first few weeks until Ponder is comfortable, but it all depends what sort of salary the veteran brings along with him to the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

But seriously, why isn't anyone talking about Joe Webb as the starter?
