McNabb a fit in Minnesota?

Donovan McNabb recently told NFL Network he has to “wait and see” about his future in Washington, saying he’s literally waiting for a meeting with team brass that could determine that outcome.

For now, we’re in a holding pattern that McNabb will be a Redskin in 2011. But the widely held opinion is that he’ll be elsewhere, given his current contract, which calls for a $10 million option bonus. If the sides don’t renegotiate, it’s unlikely a team would trade for McNabb, leading many to believe he’ll eventually be released.

So, who would be the potential suitors for McNabb? It’s all premature, but the handful of teams with unsettled quarterback situations that remain in the forefront of the conversation continue to be the 49ers, Panthers, Dolphins, Titans, Seahawks and Vikings.

NFL Network analyst Charles Davis sees a potential fit in Minnesota.

“It’s all up to the Vikings,” Davis said. “Do the Vikings think they need to blow it up and start over with their team, or do they think last year was just a down year and they have a talented football team? If they believe the latter, then McNabb makes sense. A veteran quarterback they can plug in right away and try to get to the Super Bowl they thought they were going to get to last year.”

If the Vikings determine their window to win now is still open, McNabb represents an interesting bridge to a younger quarterback. Offensively, all of the other pieces are in place. But coach Leslie Frazier hasn’t committed, saying the team hasn’t determined which strategy it will take at the position.
