Adam Schefter: Ingredients in Place for Donovan McNabb To Become Oakland Raider

As fast as the jokes can fly around here concerning the Raiders bumbling roster moves and questionable draft choices, here's one that changes the entire scope of the AFC West. While the rumors have been simmering for quite a while, it seems that several NFL analysts are all hearing the same thing: Donovan McNabb is likely headed to the Raiders.

An ESPN report today notes that the Raiders are "the leading candidate to land quarterback Donovan McNabb in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles, league sources tell ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter." This doesn't obviously mean the deal is finished, but then it goes on to say:

"The sources say all the ingredients for a trade are in place. Of all the teams the Eagles have spoken with, the Raiders have been the most willing to meet the Eagles' asking price. Last week, The Associated Press reported that the Eagles want a pick in the top 42 of the 2010 draft for McNabb. Oakland has a second-round pick that is the 39th overall selection."

Some teams are unwilling to trade for McNabb unless his contractual situation changes -- usually wanting the Pro Bowl QB to sign an extension. However, that's not the case in Oakland, as he notes, "Oakland is not concerned that McNabb is due a $6.2 million roster bonus on May 5 nor that the quarterback is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2010 season."
