Report: Raiders Team To Beat For McNabb

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Raiders have emerged as the leader to land Donovan McNabb via trade.
 
The Raiders are apparently the team to beat in regards to an offer for the 34-year-old signal caller.
 
No details have yet emerged of the compensation involved in any potential trade. Last week it was reported Nnamdi Asomugha could be involved along with Eagle’s corner Asante Samuel.
 
Judging from the poll I conducted, most of Raider Nation supports a trade for McNabb, and most for no greater than a third-round pick.
 
A third-round pick is the compensation I supported, although I wouldn’t be crushed if the Raiders surrendered a second-round pick. I believe Raider Nation would also support the trade for McNabb, should it happen, as long as it didn’t involve Asomugha or a first-round pick.
 
I feel like a second-round pick is a little too much, but I could get behind the trade.
 
The risk here is no option to use the franchise tag on McNabb in 2011 nor would the Raiders want to use it considering the price involved. He has an expiring deal after this season, so he takes on added risk.
 
This rumor has a ton of legs and with few other teams in the hunt for McNabb, I’d be surprised if it doesn’t happen. It is just a matter of when and how much.
