Eagles Trade McNabb to Redskins

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles have traded Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins for a pair of draft picks.

The Eagles will receive a second-round pick (37th overall) in this month's NFL draft and either a third- or fourth-round pick next year.

The team announced the deal Sunday night.

McNabb, a six-time Pro Bowl quarterback, led the Eagles to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl in 11 seasons in Philadelphia. His failure to lead the team to its first NFL championship since 1940 plus the emergence of Kevin Kolb made him expendable.

Kolb, who has started two games in three seasons, becomes the starter. Michael Vick is the backup.
