How big would McNabb's impact be?

Just how would Donovan McNabb impact the Oakland Raiders if he were to be traded to them?

Of course he’d help, but ESPN’s John Clayton has an interesting column on the topic. Clayton thinks McNabb would make Oakland – which has lost 11 or more games for seven straight years, an NFL record – better, but not good enough.


All seem like valid points. I agree. I think McNabb will help, but overall, it may not be worth Oakland’s time considering it has other needs, McNabb’s age, cost and contract status.

Meanwhile, the rumor page on ESPN.com notes that there is now room for Nnamdi Asomugha in Philadelphia’s secondary. ESPN.com reported last week that Oakland would be willing to make Asomugha part of a package in a deal for McNabb. Despite this latest development, I’d be surprised if Asomugha goes anywhere this year.

Meanwhile, Oakland re-signed offensive lineman Langston Walker.
