ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Redskins have acquired QB Donovan McNabb from the Eagles for undisclosed compensation.

It's also unclear if the Redskins have extended McNabb's contract; he's entering the final year of his deal. We're guessing, but DE Andre Carter may be headed to Philadelphia along with perhaps Washington's fourth-round pick (No. 103) and more considerations. Jason Campbell will presumably move into the primary backup role in D.C., assuming the Skins haven't rescinded his restricted free agent tender. The Kevin Kolb era in Philadelphia has begun.

Uh, isn't Philly in the same division as the Redskins? If so, WTF is the owner of the Eagles thinking?

@AAV Crewchief

To me it looks like the Eagles figured that they cannot win a SB with McNabb so they dumped him for draft picks

I don't think its his fault though. He hasn't had a STUD RB ever and TO was the only stud rec he had and we all know TO is effing nuts.

McNabb will have nearly all the tools he needs to build a great squad in wash. But did they get a new coach? And wtf were the eagles owners thinking?

Well, I guess he'd rather go to Washington and deep pockets Daniel Snyder than work for that crazy coot named AL Davis.

Dan Snyder is the most hated man in D.C.

I feel bad for Jason Campbell, he is getting blamed for the failure of the Redskins offense, but the truth is that the whole organization is dysfunctional. I feel bad for McNabb spending his twilight years here, but D.C. is a fun town....

I know what you're thinking, but D.C. is full of Libs and the only man more hated than Snyder moved to Texas over a year ago.:D

@spotts

Reid does not fear McNabb. They know him very well. They feel that this is a better direction for them.

Good move for the Skins as they have a mature core of receivers and tight ends. The running game is a question and they may address that in the draft also.

This a very deep draft too. Three or four rounds are deep at several positions except QB

Just my opinion, but I don't think Tebow is gonna do very good in the NFL.

Awwwwwwwww brother, I am a NOLES fan and I will admit that the kid has a heart and soul himself that has been bigger than my team the entire 4 years he was a Gator....and as a Nole that is sad to say. Just give him a chance. He IS a project, but nobody will work as hard as he will. He competes...at every level.

Oh, I agree he has great talent and as a Gator fan, that was hard to say. The reality is he has little to no experience under center, and the shotgun every play will not work in the NFL. Also, his scrambling ability is awsome, but in the NFL that is a sure fire ticket to IR. I am just afraid he will be like a lot of former Gator QB's....non-producers when they go to the NFL.

Tim Tebow (Florida) - Terry Baker (Oregon State)
Here's a little bit of history about "Touchdown Terry Baker". When I think of Tim Tebow entering the NFL I think of Terry Baker. I saw him play on the television. He was very, very good....just like Tebow.
On November 27, 1962, it was announced that Baker was the winner of the Heisman Trophy for his achievements during the 1962 season. He was the first person to win the Heisman Trophy west of Texas and the only player ever to win from Oregon State. In addition to winning the Heisman in 1962, he also won the Maxwell Award and the W.J. Voit Memorial Trophy, was a consensus first team All-American, was named the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year, was a Helms Foundation Award recipient, and was the winner of 14 player of the year awards, including the AP, UPI, and The Sporting News. He was also part of the All-Star team in the 1963 College All-Star Game, the last time the All-Star team would ever defeat the reigning NFL champions.

After graduation, Baker entered the 1963 NFL Draft and was the first overall pick, by the Los Angeles Rams. Baker played with the Rams for 3 seasons, and later played for the Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL while earning a J.D. at the University of Southern California Law School. He is considered the first of many Heisman trophy busts in the NFL, mainly due to his style of play not fitting into the Rams' offensive scheme. This could also be attributed to the fact that the head coach of the LA Rams often had Baker lining up as a running back. It is also widely accepted that Baker was ahead of his time as a dual threat quarterback

Reid loves a project; I could see the kid being the No 2 instead of Vick real quick.
