The offseason leading up to the 2010 season has been filled with big transactions and surprising releases, but no move captured more attention than what was executed moments ago. The release of players like Brian Westbrook and Shawn Andrews, as well as trades that shipped away guys such as Sheldon Brown, were all bold moves by the Eagles, but what they recently announced is sure to remain the organization’s most talked-about decision for weeks, months, and perhaps even years. When this article was initially published, the story/topic was breaking news, and contained a blockbuster move, to say the least: QB Donovan McNabb has been traded to the Redskins.
