Get ready for some false rumor monger accusations.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on NFL Live Monday that the Raiders are the “clear cut favorites” to land Donovan McNabb.
Per Schefter, the Raiders are reportedly not worried about Philadelphia’s asking price or the fact McNabb is only signed for one more year. If McNabb landed in Oakland, the Raiders could potentially retain his rights in 2011 with the franchise tag. (Although that could be near $20 million.)
We’ve heard a lot of different reports and rumors regarding McNabb over the last five days, and Oakland’s interest is a theme that runs through many. PFT first reported Nmandi Asomugha’s possible inclusion in a trade offer Friday.
Oakland’s status as favorites for McNabb has a certain logic to it. Based on everything we’ve seen from Al Davis over the last five years, this absolutely looks like a move he’d make.
