The Minnesota Vikings have waived quarterback Donovan McNabb, giving the veteran quarterback an opportunity to sign with another team for the stretch run.

The Vikings' intention to release McNabb was first reported by NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora.

McNabb, who was traded to the Vikings in the offseason to be their starter, recently had been taking reps with the third string and went to the team requesting his release, team sources told La Canfora. After a conversation with coach Leslie Frazier the Vikings granted his request.

Several potential playoff teams have lost quarterbacks recently, including the Chicago Bears (McNabb's hometown team, and a place he would obviously love to play) and the Houston Texans, who run a system very much like what McNabb ran during his 2010 season with the Washington Redskins.

Frazier addressed the media Thursday and said he was unaware if McNabb had a preferred team in mind.

"I know there are some teams out there looking for QBs, but he did not mention that to me," Frazier said.

I like McNabb, but I believe he is not the QB he believes himself to be. Good luck getting picked up by one of 'those' teams in the hunt.
