Although the Minnesota Vikings used the 12th overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft on quarterback Christian Ponder, they don't appear to be done adding new signal-callers to their roster just yet. Throughout Tuesday rumors were swirling about the Vikings making a move to acquire Donovan McNabb from the Washington Redskins, and now it looks like the deal is imminent.
From Jay Glazer:
Vikes agree to trade 6th rounder in 12 and possibly 6th in 13 to Wash for Donovan McNabb. Deal contingent on McNabb agreeing to much less $$
It's pretty amazing that the Vikings may be on the verge of acquiring McNabb for only two sixth-round picks, but that just shows how much his value has dropped in one season. I personally don't think it's a bad move by the Vikings, but McNabb doesn't exactly strike fear in me, either.
It'll be interesting to see how the Vikings QB situation develops if this trade does indeed happen.
