McNabb: 'I know nothing' of report he wants out


To say this season has been disappointing for Donovan McNabb and the Washington Redskins is a monumental understatement.

Reduced to the Redskins' No. 3 QB after a season of turmoil following his off-season trade from Philadelphia, a split after the season between the QB and the Redskins seems likely. So it hardly was surprising when a report surfaced Sunday saying McNabb will ask for his release after the season.

That is, unless you're Donovan McNabb. Responding to the report after Sunday's 20-17 overtime win over the Jaguars, McNabb denied any knowledge of the request.

"I don’t know where that came from," he said. "I know nothing about it."

"You’re the only one who would," I said.

"That's right," he said. "And I don't know anything about it."

There seems to be little doubt that McNabb is on his way out. Coach Mike Shanahan and Kyle Shanahan, the Redskins' offensive coordinator and the coach's son, have demonstrated their lack of faith in McNabb. The fact McNabb is due a $10 million roster bonus next spring should speed the process.

He hosted his own radio show for seven years, and is the self-anointed star of CBS Sports' show, Eye on Football. When he's not watching game tape, you can find Pete on Twitter or dreaming of an Arizona State national title in football.
