Today’s Philadelphia Daily News talks about the team and Donovan McNabb’s status. Word is McNabb seems to think that a “significant guarantee” would make sure that he’s the starter for the future. Here is the story from today’s paper:
Joe Banner would not discuss Donovan McNabb’s situation, even to confirm or deny that he might have met with the quarterback’s agent, Fletcher Smith, at the combine. McNabb has said he wants to sit down with management, to talk about his benching last November and his contract, which has 2 years to run but isn’t guaranteed. McNabb seems to feel that a significant guarantee would cement his role as the starter; it certainly would make him much less likely to be traded or released. That is, it would make him less likely to be traded or released this year – with the NFL looking at the strong possibility of an uncapped year in 2010, whatever McNabb’s salary going forward, there would be no penalty for shedding it, if the cap didn’t exist. Maybe another team would be less likely to assume a huge contract, but otherwise, as Banner noted, “You can’t really give somebody security in an uncapped year.”
