AP source: Vikings let McNabb go
Question of the Day
EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN. (AP) - A person with knowledge of the situation says the Minnesota Vikings have waived quarterback Donovan McNabb, giving the 13-year veteran the opportunity to sign with another team for the stretch run.
The person spoke Thursday to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not yet announced the decision. The Vikings declined immediate comment.
McNabb was in the locker room when it was open to reporters Thursday, but he wasn’t on the field an hour later when practice began. Christian Ponder was promoted to replace McNabb as the starter after relieving him in the fourth quarter at Chicago on Oct. 16.
McNabb threw only two interceptions in six games, but struggled to get the offense running.
