The Washington Redskins and quarterback Donovan McNabb have agreed to five-year contract extension, reports NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora, citing a league source.
The deal, which locks in McNabb until 2015, includes $40 million guaranteed and could be worth up to a maximum of $88 million, including $10 million in incentives. The deal averages $15.5 million per season, according to the source.

Excellent news for us Giants fans.
I guess if they didn’t.......they’d be racist.
Is this an Onion story?
The coach benchs the QB, so the owner gives the QB $88 million?
What next, they’ll sign Brett Favre as a backup?
Christmas spirit! Gotta love it. Would Jerry Jones do that?
More money than sense, apparently. A lot more.
Not bad for a guy whose coach thinks he’s too old and tired to run a 2-minute drill.
As a Giants fan, I wish McNabb stayed an Eagle, as they are better than the ‘Skins
Incredibly stupid... is there a fantasy football team owner in the country.. outside of DC.. who would guarantee ANYTHING for McNabb?
The NFL has GOT to get away from the guaranteed money... it will kill them.
McNabb is still a decent qb, but on most teams he would be a backup.
A man who was best known for his scrambling ability is getting the big paycheck when his legs will be 39 years old at the end of the contract?
First he signs the fat, out-of-shape whiner Albert Haynesworth to a $100 mil. contract, and now an over-the-hill QB who coach Shanahan described as "not in shape to run our 2-min. offense" gets an $88 mil. deal.
How old will McNabb be in 2015?
Limbaugh didn't say he was no good; he simply implied that he wasn't as good as the media wanted him to be.
The QB they got rid of, Campbell, was perfectly good. This is gigantic stupidity.
LOL. Must be nice to have $88 million to piss away. I’d love to have just .01% of that to pay off my bills. :)
After Sunday's game against Dallas, the Giants need more than this to make their run for the division. Worst game against a team not making the playoff in a long time.
Sounds like a moron Snyder move once aqain.
McNabbs agent probably whined about a commitment and Snyder overreacted.
I predict that Shanahan will be leaving next year, two years tops. LOL, snyder is worse than Angelos.
I think that's true. Although, I don't think he runs an office as nearly as well as a guy like Kitna, or even Collins. $14M/Year with $40M being guaranteed is just stupid, insulting to the fans, really.
Hey, I can throw in the dirt too!
Good crimeny. I was hoping my ‘Skins would make some smart rebuilding decisions soon... this was not one of them...
Jerry Jones can fire the coach in mid-season and still get the Cowboys to beat the Giants in NJ.
The Giants are in 1st place in the NL East — a “run for the division” is already assured. As for the game, Dallas won on big plays and big turnovers by the G-Men. It happens.
You've got to admit that the Dallas defense played great, especially considering how banged-up they are in the secondary and how great NY's offense has looked this season, and especially last week.
It's curious that the defense plays better when the new HC is an offensive guy. Maybe there were too many cooks in the kitchen before.
Aren’t the Redskins the team that has been sueing season ticketowners that lost their jobs and attempted to cancel their season tickets?
1st downs: Giants 24, Dallas 14
Time of possession: Giants 38 min., Dallas 22 min.
Total yards: Giants 480, Dallas 427.
And this is with the Giants missing two offensive linemen due to injury this week.
So no, I wouldn’t say the Dallas defense played “great.” This game was about turnovers at the worst possible time some very big plays. ...especially by Dez Bryant (an amazing talent).
OMG my boss is a huge Redskins fan....and a McNabb hater....he is going to drop over when I text him with this news..
Just when I was feeling all smug and superior over the Plowboy fans, Little Danny goes and does this. Argh.
Wow is right. I don’t think I would have kept him around, not that long anyhow. Maybe a two year deal.
What him throw 3 INT’s against the Iggles tonight.
Let me rephrase - Dallas "played great" relative to how they were playing in the first 8 games of the season, against the run in particular. Back in October, the Giants dropped 41 on them. They cut that in half, despite the pretty good play of Eli.
Considering Dallas had a makeshift secondary, they did pretty well.
Make sure he signs off on your holiday vacation request first, then text him.
One thing is certain — Dallas played with a lot more emotion this week. ...most likely the result of the coaching change.
I was looking for the satire tag...guess not.
I attribute it more to The Hawthorne Effect, which tends to be short-lived.
I hope âit happensâ won’t be the post mortem recap for the Giants Eagles, and Giant Redskins games.
I am so loving this.
It will be. ...after the Giants stomp those far-inferior teams. “It happens” ...quite often, in fact.
Did you hear about Dez Bryant's expensive loss yesterday?
Could make him think twice about wearing diamond earrings during games. ...but I doubt it.
If they leave him in that long. He’s already down 21-0, and has thrown at least one interception that I remember.
I wish we had hired Vick instead of buying McNabb. Vick may be a problem case, but at least he has potential.
Rush was right.
I’d bet anything he still gets traded to Minnesota next year. He’s pulling the Favre plan: play one year with a schlub team then go where you really wanted to play.
All I can say to you Redskins fans, SUX2BU.
The one who looks really hot is Vick.
No team is undefeated so you have a point. I guess I just don’t like loosing to the Cowboys at home.
