We passed along an article last week in Minnesota that tried to tie Donovan McNabb to the Vikings.
Many of you didn’t take it seriously because the information came from Charley Walters’ notes column, which tends to throw a few things against the wall to see what sticks.
Well, a more reliable source connected McNabb to Minnesota on Saturday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter wrote on Twitter Saturday he believes Donovan McNabb “would like to” play for the Vikings next year.
It’s unclear if the interest is mutual. McNabb would have made more sense while Brad Childress was around, but new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave is expected to transition away from the team’s West Coast offense.
McNabb has been a somewhat forgotten man this offseason with Kevin Kolb, Carson Palmer, and even Marc Bulger connected to more teams. But McNabb is almost certainly not going to be in Washington next year and should be available.
He could work as a “bridge” quarterback for a team like Minnesota that also selects a quarterback in the draft.
