McNabb has struggled this season for Leslie Frazier’s 2-7 Vikings. He was replaced by rookie Christian Ponder midway through a loss to the Chicago Bears on October 16th. And, he has not taken a single snap since.

Many are predicting that this chapter is now titled “retirement.” Mainly due to the fact that McNabb’s release was not prompted by other interested teams, but rather a desire to “move on” from the situation in Minnesota.
