McNabb was brought into Minnesota to start while rookie Christian Ponder was groomed. But due to very bad play, McNabb was benched in week 6, and Ponder took over. McNabb then asked to be waived, and had his wish granted today.
"This was the best decision for both parties," said Vikings coach Leslie Frazier."He was a great player and has been a great player for our league for a long, long time. Have a lot of affection and love for Donovan."Donovon McNabb was a Pro Bowl QB in Philadelphia since being drafted 2nd overall out of Syracuse in 1999. He led the Eagles to a Super Bowl in 2004, but lost to New England. After the Super Bowl year, injuries have derailed his career, and led him to where he is today.

He was traded to Minnesota for a 6th round pick before this season, and once again it did not work out and he was benched. Then waived, and we are where we are today.
The Cowboys, Bears, and Texans are all said to be possible landing spots for McNabb.
This appears to be the end of McNabb's career. It will be best for him to retire at season end in my opinion, and make his case for a Hall Of Fame berth. His numbers and career record deserve an entry I think, but the case against him also has its points. But if my vote counted, I would vote McNabb in on his first ballet attempt.
