Donovan McNabb said that there has been no change to his uncertain standing with the Washington Redskins, and it is unclear as to whether his agent, Fletcher Smith, and Washington coach/executive vice president Mike Shanahan or general manager Bruce Allen have met.
McNabb this week is working as a guest Super Bowl analyst for ESPN, and while doing so yesterday evening, he was asked by ESPN’s Mike Tirico where he and the Redskins stood. McNabb, in his typical tight-lipped manner, said he is approaching things as if he is a Redskin -- for now.
“As of right now, I’m definitely a Washington Redskin,” said McNabb, who struggled in his first season with the Redskins and was benched for the final games of the season and isn't expected to return next year. “I signed a contract to be with them the next couple of years and that’s the way I’m treating it as such, and I think the way of approaching it myself is to make sure that this offseason, I focus on being a better quarterback and being ready for the 2011 season.”
