ESPN1500 reported that McNabb’s agent has asked for his release. With multiple starting quarterbacks going down, I’m surprised this didn’t come last week. Actually it probably should of came after his benching back in week 6. After the Vikings release McNabb, teams can submit a waiver on McNabb if they please and will have to pick up his tag of roughly $1.2 million.
Only places that I could see McNabb end up would be Chicago, Houston, or Dallas. Chicago and Dallas both submitted waiver claims on quarterback Kyle Orton last week. I highly doubt anyone would want to pick up his price tag for the remainder of the year but the Vikings sure hope someone does.
*UPDATE: Leslie Frazier confirmed that McNabb has been released.
