We know the 49ers’ quarterback of the future isn’t presently on the roster. Could he be on the Redskins roster?
“Oh man – I’d love to catch some passes from Donovan McNabb,” tight end Vernon Davis said on Tuesday’s T.Ocho Show, which continues to air despite being ignored by the Golden Globes.
“I saw some of the things he did with you when you were playing with him, and he did a great job getting you the ball,” Davis told Owens via Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.
T.O. may not agree with Davis’ last point, but the speculation actually makes some sense. McNabb’s has played his whole career in the West Coast offense, even if he’s a better vertical passer than a true timing thrower.
Barrows points out that the 49ers could have gone after McNabb last offseason, but decided not to. McNabb’s play in Washington certainly hasn’t helped his market value.
