08:03 AM ET 04.19 | There may be a spark near the smoke that is Donovan-McNabb-to-the-Vikings. The Vikings are indeed one of the teams interested in McNabb, according to two people with knowledge of the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity. But obviously, no deal could be made until there is a new collective bargaining agreement. ... If McNabb is still on Washington's roster the day after the first regular season game, the Redskins would have to decide whether to pick up the $10 million option on his contract. His base salary for 2011 would be $1.75 million, but if he is on the 53-man squad the entire season, McNabb could receive a total of $12.75 million. It is believed that McNabb would be willing to give back the $3.5 million signing bonus he received last fall in exchange for his release.
