Banner was more than an interested observer when Donovan McNabb had his introductory news conference with the Washington Redskins today.

Asked his impressions after watching on television, Banner said, “He’s Donovan. He’s a great guy. He’s professional. That’s who he is.”

He also confirmed an ESPN report about the provisions of the trade that are “tied to how he plays,” Banner said.

The Eagles received the Redskins’ second-round pick this year and a conditional fourth-round pick next year.

The fourth-round pick can become a third-rounder if one of two conditions are met: McNabb is selected to the Pro Bowl or the Redskins win at least nine games with McNabb playing at least 70 percent of the snaps.
