$40 Million Could Be Worth $3.5? Damn Inflation

Well this is a relief.

The contract that supposedly guaranteed Donovan McNabb $40 million could turn out to be worth a mere $3.5 million.

McNabb’s agent, Fletcher Smith, clarified some of the details of McNabb’s deal Tuesday. Smith said that while the contract is worded so that it has “$40 million in guarantees,” the Redskins do have an option to cut McNabb at the end of the season with no further money due.

McNabb received a $3.5 million bonus this year as part of the new agreement, but the rest of the five-year, $78 million package would be voided if the team cuts him.

The clause essentially gives the Redskins seven more games to decide if McNabb is truly the quarterback to lead the team under coach Mike Shanahan, who infamously benched the former Eagle in the final two minutes of a loss to Detroit two weeks ago.

McNabb said Tuesday on his weekly radio show that there is language in the deal that was necessitated by the possibility of a lockout in 2011.

“That doesn’t mean I won’t be a Redskin,” McNabb said. “I will be here next year. … Not just next year, but after that as well.”

I never saw Donovan McNabb as a five-year, $78 million quarterback, ever … ever.

I just had a little $78 million kid come up to me and ask if it was OK for him to play quarterback.
