Donovan McNabb might finally be able to get out of Washington.

If he takes a pay cut.

Jay Glazer of FoxSports.com reports that the Vikings and Redskins have a deal in place that would allow McNabb to play in Minnesota. But he would have to come to terms on a new contract with the Vikings.

Washington (for some reason) signed McNabb to a five-year extension last season, and Minnesota apparently doesn't want him on their roster if he is carrying that contract.

So what do the Redskins get in return? A sixth-round pick in 2012 and a conditional pick in 2013. Just last year, the Eagles were able to get a second-round pick and a fourth-rounder from Washington.

Per Glazer, the Vikings would want McNabb to start as they groom first-round pick Christian Ponder.

Update: Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that McNabb is expected to work out a deal with the Vikings and head to Minnesota.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys have come to terms with offensive tackle Doug Free, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The new deal is worth four years and $32M.
