McNabb has remained mostly tight-lipped about his situation in front of the microphone, and Shiancoe wouldn’t give away McNabb’s wishes.

“It’s tough to see a veteran guy who can actually still play in this league get kind of pushed out the door,” Hall said. “But that’s the direction this organization decided to go in. As a part of this team, you’ve just got to live with it and keep fighting.”
McNabb will be fighting elsewhere next year, with Minnesota as likely a destination as any team. Mike Shanahan will need to find a capable replacement or more Redskins veterans may second guess how the team treated McNabb.
