Now that the NFL lockout is over and trading between teams can begin, there have been a lot of teams around the league that have been actively working the phones. The one team that may be working the phones and talking trades more than any other is the Washington Redskins.

With six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb being nothing more than a pain in head coach Mike Shanahan’s side, the Washington Redskins are ready to cut their losses and either trade or release Donovan McNabb. This comes as no surprise to most people as these kind of trade rumors about the perennial Pro Bowler have been circulating for quite some time, but now a deal seems to be right around the corner as the Minnesota Vikings are ready to pull the trigger on a trade for McNabb.

There is still no indication as to what the Washington Redskins would receive in return for the veteran quarterback, but they do seem determined to get rid of the troublesome quarterback before next season. If the Redskins can’t get a deal done, Washington will just release McNabb before next season with no real cost to them.

Needless to say, one way or the other, the Washington Redskins will be parting ways with Donovan McNabb, but they would prefer to do it via trade in order to get something in return for arguably their best trade asset on the team.

With that being said, the Washington Redskins have been in aggressive talks with the Minnesota Vikings about getting a deal done. As of right now, the Vikings are in trouble at the quarterback position with Brett Favre not returning and Tarvaris Jackson recently signing with the Seattle Seahawks. With their two tops quarterbacks gone, the Vikings have to make a move before they are forced to start rookie Christian Ponder or third stringer Joe Webb.
