08:01 AM ET 07.15 | There is still a place in the NFL for Donovan McNabb ... probably. It's sounding like the teams that might have interest in him all have one thing in common: They drafted their franchise quarterbacks in April and are looking for a mentor to start ahead of them until the young buck is ready to take over. Where's the best fit for McNabb? Minnesota still would seem to be the most logical answer. People familiar with the situation have long maintained the Vikings have interest. Brad Childress is gone, but Minnesota still sports a West Coast offense very similar to the one McNabb ran in Philadelphia. That might be the easiest transition for No. 5, who would have Christian Ponder picking his brain and watching his movements while trying to learn the NFL.

McNabb will definitely be pursued if there is a CBA, too many teams have a need for a veteran QB, any QB, as a stopgap until their draft picks mature or the Andrew Luck sweepstakes begins

He'll wind up somewhere. We might even here from Lienhart again. Jamarcus Russell would be a gift from heaven!

One of my best friends is a die hard Raiders fan.. when they drafted Russell, he was gushing and so excited and talking mad smack and how he can throw 70 yards on one knee. LOL

Guess it never occurred to him that if you try that in a game, you are called "down".

I hear Washington needs a QB. Oh...wait...

July 15, 2011  09:21 AM ET

Washington has a habit though of taking High $ good players and making them mediocre. McNabb, L. Coles, Fat Albert. They just need to get young players who want to play....and I mean on the field not in the strips clubs or BMW dealers.

Throw 70 yards... football in one hand.. Purple drank and quadruple cheeseburger in the other.

The Vikes should get JaCarcass instead of McNabb. His purple drank would match his jersey. Think of the endorsement potential!

Not to mention a new owner, some new coaches, and new players at most positions. Sigh.
