The Donovan McNabb experiment in Minnesota has completely come to a close.
On Thursday, the Vikings, at 2-9, released McNabb after originally acquiring him from the Washington Redskins in the offseason.
McNabb completed 94 of 156 passes for 1026 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions in six starts with the Vikings in 2011. He was replaced by starter Christian Ponder on October 16. McNabb’s primarily weakness however was his inability to throw a long pass, as he completed just five of his 94 completions for over 25 yards, according to the Associated Press.
The question now is where will McNabb go? Well, with Jay Cutler out for a while with a broken thumb that required surgery in Chicago, it appears there may be a definite opportunity there. The Bears are in the thick of things in the NFC North at 7-4. McNabb, if he goes to Chicago, won’t have to do much either, as they already have a great running game led by Matt Forte, great special teams led by Devin Hester and great defense led by Brian Urlacher. Oh, and McNabb is also from Chicago.
