One of the most surprising parts of Andy Reid’s Easter night press conference — other than the fact it was happening at all — was that he stressed Donovan McNabb’s happiness as a factor in Sunday’s trade.
Thanks to the magic of technology, I read Schefter’s tweet on the subject and was able to ask Reid about it moments later.
“That’s not accurate,” Reid said.
While it may not have been that black and white, Reid made it clear many times McNabb approved of joining the Redskins. The inference is that he may not have been happy with another destination.
We’ve read some thoughts that the Eagles “disrespected” McNabb in some way. If anything, it seems like the team’s respect for him partially drove this trade.
UPDATE: Schefter clarifies: McNabb handpicked
Redskins from the options he had.
