Free agent quarterback Donovan McNabb told NBC Sports Talk that he believes there’s a 80 to 90 percent chance that he’ll be on an NFL roster to start the 2012 season.
“I have about three teams that I’m looking at,” McNabb said.
“I think teams are looking at what they have. They’re evaluating their young quarterbacks, their backup situation,” McNabb said. “Obviously, their starters they feel very confident in, but if things were to go wrong in training camp, or maybe the competition isn’t where they need it to be, they’ll obviously pick up the phone and call.”
The only way I see McNabb catching on with a team, is if he’s willing to be back up. I don’t see him getting signed in order to compete to be a starter.
