08:04 AM ET 12.29 | Donovan McNabb's contractually obligated radio appearance Tuesday did little to shine a light on what is really going on in the unraveled relationship between the quarterback and the team. To be sure, Smith and McNabb have discussed an exit strategy, though McNabb continues to maintain he would like to return to Washington, albeit under different circumstances. The Shanahans, however, have already determined that McNabb is not suited for their offense, according to people familiar with the situation. It would be best for McNabb if the Redskins released him immediately after the season, enabling him to choose his next team. But Mike Shanahan may not be in an accommodating mood, especially after last week's events. ... The Redskins could wait until the first game of the 2011 season to release McNabb and owe him nothing.

Yup. I don't think it would be the smartest idea to have a royally pissed off player on your roster. Albert Haynesworth part II

They're assuming the position because that's what Shanahan will be doing to their careers.
