From “Operation Desperate Sinking Ship” To “Situation Happy Camper”
The Washington Redskins and quarterback Donovan McNabb have agreed to a new, five-year, $78 million deal that could be worth up to $88 million with incentives. The fresh ink guarantees $40 million.
Meanwhile, Mike Shanahan continues to keep everyone guessing. Needless to say, he has come to his senses. Sorry, Rex Grossman.
As for McNabb, he definitely deserves “job security”. Finally, he’s appreciated for what he’s truly worth.
McNabb is the NFL’s 28th-ranked passer with a 76.0 quarterback rating. He’s averaging 246.4 yards per game (No. 13 in the NFL) and has seven touchdowns (tied for No. 26) and eight interceptions (tied for 10th most).
The Redskins (4-4) will rely on McNabb for a playoff push in the half of 2010. McNabb is due a $5 million base salary this season and a $6.2 million roster bonus.
