McNabb benching: Eagles draft pick not affected

The Donovan McNabb benching will not affect what draft pick the Eagles get back from the Redskins. The trade conditions related to McNabb's playing time were already moot.

The Eagles would get a third round pick -- instead of a fourth -- on two conditions.

1) McNabb made the Pro Bowl or

2) He played 70 percent of the Redskins snaps AND they won nine games or made the playoffs.

The Redskins won't win nine or reach the postseason, so the percentage issue is irrelevant.

Theoretically, the Eagles could still get a third round pick if McNabb somehow reaches the Pro Bowl. But let's just say that's a long shot.
