It finally happened.

In a shocker that surely has Redskins fans feeling a good aura over their team for the first time in the past two years, Washington has acquired quarterback Donovan McNabb from their division rivals in Philadelphia, in exchange for the 37th overall pick this year, and a conditional 2011 fourth round pick that could potentially be a third round pick.

This almost certainly spells the end of Jason Campbell’s tenure as a starter, and he will begin to receive serious attention on the trading block in the near future.

The price tag for Campbell will likely be a third or fourth rounder, considering the difference between himself and McNabb.

According to multiple sources, the Washington Redskins have added their second free agent running back of the off season, agreeing to terms with former Steelers running back Willie Parker.

The deal is for one year and can be worth as much as $3.1 million with incentives.

After the emergence of Rashard Mendenhall, Parker clearly lost his grip on the staring role in Pittsburgh. According to agent Douglas Hendrickson, the Redskins have let him know that the running back competition is wide open in Washington.

Regardless, the Redskins now have a nice three headed rushing attack they can employ along with Clinton Portis, and fellow free agent import Larry Johnson. All three have proven track records as feature backs

According to Pro Football Talk Deon Grant is visiting with the New York Giants and indications are he will more then likely strike a deal with the team.

Starting safety Kenny Phillips may take awhile to recover from a knee condion, Grant would give them a more then capable insurance policy.

Grant just came off a solid three year stint with the Seattle Seahawks, where he started all 48 games, notching 234 tackles, 8 INT’s, and overall his three career best tackle figures.

The Seahawks deemed him expendable amidst their needed rebuilding movement with his $11 million price tag over the next two seasons.

The man brought into battle for the starting job in Minnesota before No. 4 came along may be on the move once again.

According to Michael Lombardi of National Football Post, the Raiders and Vikings are in trade talks that could give Vikings backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels a better chance to land a starting job.

The trade, like several other pending moves, is more then likely contingent on Brett Favre, and whether or not he will come back to one of the leagues best teams. I don’t believe we’re ever going to see Jackson or Rosenfels start (again) for Minnesota, considering that they’ve tasted the luxury of having a Hall of Fame caliber quarterback calling the signals.

The Raiders are leaving their options open at quarterback this off-season, and seeing as Rosenfels would be much cheaper than sending All-Pro cornerback, Nnamdi Asomugha, to the Eagles for quarterback Donovan McNabb, his acquisition makes some sense.

Not the best way to make a first impression on a team potentially forking over as much as $17.5 million for your services.

New Arizona Cardinals Linebacker Joey Porter was arrested Saturday on suspicion of DUI, was accused of assaulting an officer, and resisting arrest.

At first Porter was belligerent, refusing to provide a drivers license and trying to ignore the officers demand he step out of the car by rolling up his window. When one of the officers tried to unlock his door Porter allegedly slapped his hand away.

After eventually getting out and complying with the officers’ Porter and a passenger were both arrested.

The Arizona Cardinals released this statement: “The team is aware of the incident. We are in the process of gathering all of the facts concerning it and won’t comment further until that’s completed.”

According to the Seattle PI, citing the Sacramento Bee, free agent guard Chester Pitts is visiting with the team today as well as tomorrow.

Pitts has extensive starting experience in Houston, where he started 114 consecutive games before being cut down by injuries last season; his knee injury is definitely a red flag to be considered.

He also worked under Alex Gibbs and his zone blocking scheme in Houston, the match appears seamless. If signed he steps in and becomes the best offensive lineman on this team, (unless Walter suits up), this would be a good coup for this blocking challenged squad.

Pitts has also visited with the 49ers as well.

Adam Schefter has reported on his Insider blog that the Denver Broncos have had informal discussions about signing center Kevin Mawae.

The need is there from when Casey Wiegmann went back to the Kansas City Chiefs after his one year stint; it would be a fairly seamless transition from Wiegmann (36), to Mawae, (39).

Despite being 39 Mawae can still perform at a pro bowl level, once a team can get past his age, they will find themselves landing a good bridge option for their younger players.

the Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins, and Tennessee Titans are other rumored suitors Schefter points out.

The Titans only want him in a backup capacity, making his departure all the more imminent.

Adam Schefter has tweeted that the San Francisco 49ers have re-signed offensive tackle Barry Sims to a one year contract worth $2.1 million.

The 49ers picked him up after the Oakland Raiders released him following the 2007 season, he has started 15 games for the Niners.

Sims drew interest from the Washington Redskins on the open market as well.

The Miami Dolphins have reportedly put left guard Justin Smiley on the trade block and are barring him from practicing or working out at the teams training facilities.

This comes just after the Fins signed volatile guard Richie Incognito away from the Buffalo Bills after he lasted just three games there. Apparently his acquisition has left Smiley up for grabs to willing bidders.

Smiley was arguably the Dolphins best lineman last season, but he had some durability issues, missing five total games because of leg and shoulder injuries.

The Baltimore Ravens have signed defensive end Cory Redding to a two year contract, according to multiple sources.

The Seahawks acquired Redding and a fifth round pick from the Detroit Lions for pro bowl linebacker Julian Peterson last off season. He only recorded 20 tackles and a pair of sacks last season in his unimpressive stint with Seattle.

After losing Dwan Edwards to the Buffalo Bills in free agency, the Ravens needed to replace the depth they lost from his departure; Redding comes in with good size (292 lbss), at the defensive end position for the Ravens 3-4 defense.

According to NFL Fanhouse, Miami Dolphins Running Back Ronnie Brown was arrested Friday night on suspicion of DUI.

Brown was pulled over near his home in Rome, Georgia, for failure to signal while making a lane change; before this arrest he never had a prior criminal record.

Brown rushed for 648 and eight TD’s in 2009 before his season was cut short by a foot injury; he was on pace to finish with the most rushing TD’s in the league before his injury.

According to multiple sources, the Seahawks have acquired former Chargers quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, who has yet to throw a pass in the NFL.

The teams will swap second round picks, costing Seattle 20 slots in that round and the Seahawks will send San Diego their third round pick in next year’s draft as well.

In addition, Seattle has extended Whitehurst’s contract by two years, and $10 million.

The price the Seahawks were willing to pay and the contract doled out makes it likely thatJimmy Clausen and Sam Bradford are off Seattle’s draft board, although it’s still possible that Clausen will be available later in round one or early in round two.

This deal also takes the Seahawks out of the running for restricted free agent wide receiver Brandon Marshall, as the cost to acquire him (a first round pick) would seem to be too much to give up at this juncture.
