Raiders open to giving star CB for McNabb
By Bill Williamson
There are two new developments in the Donovan McNabb trade talks.
The Associated Press is reporting that McNabb talked to Philadelphia coach Andy Reid on Thursday and told him he wants to stay with the Eagles and does not want to go to Oakland or Buffalo. It has been reported that the Raiders and Bills have inquired about McNabb.
Reid and McNabb have been together for 11 years and have had a good relationship. I think Reid would have a difficult time sending McNabb to a team he has no interest going to if there been other comparable offers.
It's also being reported the Raiders are willing to put cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha in the deal. But the Eagles are reluctant because they may have to put other players in the deal and Asomugha has a huge contract.
If the Raiders are willing to part with their best player and the face of the franchise for McNabb, they are indeed interested in the quarterback. But it seems the feeling is not mutual.
