Donovan McNabb still believes he can play in the NFL, and he still believes somebody wants to pay him money to do so. Of course, he thought the same thing last year after the Vikings got rid of him and he waited by the phone for somebody (anybody) to ring for him. That never happened, which seemed to surprise McNabb.
But he hasn't given up on his faith.
On Thursday's NBC SportTalk (via PFT), McNabb said there's between an 80 and 90 percent he'll play this year.
So, um, what?
“I have about three teams that I'm looking at,” said McNabb, who conveniently wouldn't say the three teams he was discussing.
And what would these so-called teams be getting with McNabb under center?
“You bring a veteran who has great experience to the ball club,” he said last December after Minnesota waived him. “Athletic ability, a guy who's not a locker room cancer, a great work ethic and only wants to win. I'm a winner and I've proven that.”
In scrolling through the teams who might need a somewhat capable, 35-year-old backup who's looked old and ineffective while playing for the Redskins and Vikings, I've come up with three possible options: the Bills if Vince Young is absolutely terrible, the Ravens and the Colts.
Therefore, I suppose, it's not out of the realm of possibility that McNabb somehow could be signed by a desperate-enough team (Baltimore without Joe Flacco and Indianapolis without Andrew Luck certainly would qualify).
But, in my view, it's doubtful you'll ever see McNabb on the field again.
