The trade of Donovan McNabb will define the rest of the Andy Reid era and the start of Mike Shanahan’s run in Washington.
Before we start thinking about history, though, there are a lot of short-term dominoes to fall.
First, Jason Campbell is no longer necessary in Washington. Any teams that were connected to McNabb (Buffalo, Oakland, St. Louis) make sense as possible suitors for Campbell.
McNabb and Kolb are also logical candidates for contract extensions. It would shock us if Kolb didn’t get a new deal before he takes over as the team’s starter.
We’d say that the Eagles are all in on Kolb, but they don’t have the most expensive backup in football in Michael Vick.
McNabb has only one year left on his contract and it will be interesting to see if the Redskins are ready to commit to him long-term.
