08:03 AM ET 06.29 | As of Friday morning, there was no place in the NFL for Donovan McNabb. But he nevertheless believes that, when the total jobs are cut to 53 per team (1,696 total), he's likely to have one. Appearing in studio on Thursday's edition of NBC SportsTalk, McNabb said there's an 80-to-90-percent chance he'll play in 2012. So which team will he be playing for? "I have about three teams that I'm looking at," McNabb said. But McNabb would identify none of them. More importantly, it's not clear at all whether the teams he's "looking at" are in turn "looking at" him. He's most interested in teams with a "solid running game, weapons on the outside, a defense that's been playing well and playing well together, and that's ready to win right now."

I don't think returning is an option for Donavan anymore, if he were to return Chicago would probably be his best fit, they need a Back Up!

He has a wish list? Who is he kidding? If the Holy Sisters of the Poor asked him to play, he'd play.

He needs to join the NBA where bounce passes are part of the game.

So, it sounds like he's looking for a team that really doesn't have to rely on it's QB.

He prays every night that someone is really that desperate for his services. As bad as some starters are they are still an upgrade over this guy. I don't see it happening.

"Sister Act II" starring Whoopee Goldberg and Donovan McNabb.

Donovan holds the clipboard.

Would be a good back-up for the Eagles and give hime a chance to retire with them. He is still better than any back-up they have

More pathetic. No one is going to waste a roster spot on him.

Are the 3 teams eying him though?

Very suspiciously. They're bribing TSA agents to report where he's flying, so they can leave town before he gets there.

Pretty sad when a guy gets laid off from his soup kitchen job.

By his own Mama.
