For those keeping score at home, Donovan McNabb is still not signed an extension with the Washington Redskins. This may be concerning to fans who are hoping he can stick around for a few more years as he is still a servicable quarterback.
Chris Russell of 106.7 The Fan in D.C. reports that, currently, no talks are occurring. The lack of progress, per Russell, comes from the uncertain status of Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Like McNabb, Manning and Brady have one year left on their contracts. Both Manning and Brady could be in line for deals that set a new bar for the quarterback market.
Though McNabb isn’t at their same level, the extent to which they raise the ceiling on quarterback deals will trickle down to the second tier, and so on
