Six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb, released this week by the Vikings, went unclaimed on waivers, according to ESPN, which meansheis now free to sign with any NFL team. Minnesota waived the 13-year veteran Thursday, which allowed him the chance to sign with another team for the rest of the 2011 season-- including McNabb's hometown Chicago Bears. Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier described the parting of ways as mutual. The Vikings had traded a sixth-round draft choice last summer to Washington in exchange for McNabb. Alas, the veteran struggled in six games as Minnesota's starter -- the team went 1-5 with him under center -- clearing the way for rookie Christian Ponder to take over. The Vikings filled McNabb's roster spot on Friday by claiming quarterback Sage Rosengels off waivers from the Dolphins. Rosenfels was brought in by the Vikings in 2009, but he never saw playing time after Minnesota secured Brett Favre's services. Rosenfels spent last season with the New York Giants. The move also allows Minnesota to continue to use versatile youngster Joe Webb at receiver. Webb had become the primary backup to Ponder at quarterback when McNabb was demoted earlier this season.
