Minnesota Why Unemployed:
McNabb’s slide from his glory days in Philadelphia continued in 2011 with the Minnesota Vikings. McNabb tallied only four touchdown passes in the first six games, losing five of them, and struggled to complete downfield passes. McNabb was granted his release in December when it became clear Christian Ponder would start the remainder of the season. The fact that Chicago — a team desperate for quarterbacking help after losing Jay Cutler (thumb) — didn’t sign McNabb speaks volumes about where things now stand in what has been a standout NFL career. NFL Future:
The 35-year-old McNabb isn’t ready for life after football just yet. McNabb told NBC Sports Talk last week that there was an “80 to 90 percent” chance he would play this season and there are “about three teams I'm looking at.” Whether those unnamed franchises are looking at McNabb is unknown. McNabb’s best chance of returning to the NFL may come if a team loses its starting quarterback to a long-term injury and wants a veteran under center. - Alex Marvez
