Redskins will have a hard time trading McNabb

The contract extension to which McNabb agreed gives the Redskins the ability to squat on McNabb until the eve of the regular-season opener. After Week One, the Redskins would owe McNabb a $10 million option bonus and a $2.5 million base salary. Before then, however, the Redskins owe McNabb nothing and thus the Redskins can wait for the kind of trade offer that they want.

Or McNabb can buy out the balance of his contract. For the tidy sum of $30 million.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post recently speculated that the Redskins would get, at most, a conditional sixth-round or seventh-round pick for McNabb. Even then, McNabb likely would have to be willing to renegotiate his contract.
