NFL Trade: Vikings, Redskins Formally Complete Deal For Donovan McNabb

After a couple of days of rumors and speculation, it appears that quarterback Donovan McNabb will be heading to the Minnesota Vikings after all.

It has been reported by numerous sources that the Vikings and the Washington Redskins have agreed to the parameters of a deal that woulds send McNabb to the Minnesota Vikings, both in terms of McNabb signing a new contract and what kind of compensation the Vikings would give to the Redskins for his services.

McNabb, who spent the first eleven seasons of his National Football League career with the Philadelphia Eagles before being traded to the Redskins prior to the 2010 season, is a six-time Pro Bowler. For his career, he has a completion percentage of just below 59%, but has thrown twice as many career touchdown passes (230) as interceptions (115). In his one season with the Redskins, he completed 58.3% of his passes for 3,377 yards, 14 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions. He was also benched by coach Mike Shanahan towards the end of the season, which paved the way for his exit from the nation's capital after just one season.

Terms of the contract that McNabb will sign have not been officially disclosed at this time.

The deal will be made official either Thursday or Friday.
