(CBS/ AP) The Oakland Raiders have reportedly stepped up in their pursuit of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.

ESPN is reporting on its website that the Raiders are willing to meet the Eagles' asking price of a top-42 pick in the upcoming draft.

McNabb is one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL, throwing for more than 35-hundred yards last season.

There also are connections between the Raiders and McNabb, ESPN reports. Raiders owner Al Davis and McNabb both went to Syracuse, and Oakland's offensive coordinator, Hue Jackson, is a distant cousin of McNabb's, the website notes.

Oakland used the number-one pick in the 2007 draft to take QB JaMarcus Russell, but he has been a bust.

I doubt that this happens but if it did, McNabb had might as well retire than play on the Raiders since his career would be over at that point anyhow.

yeah as a player i would never want to go from a winning team to a team that is virtually invisible in the NFL. Especially under a coach and owner who are just oblivious as to how badly managed they are.

No he doesn't, and after his restructuring of his contract last year all his money is guaranteed regardless of if he's on the team or not, it was the "financial apology" for being benched in the Ravens game.


MCNabb's base salary for this year is 1.5 million w/ a signing bonus proration of 3.5 mil, and bonuses up to $506,000.

It was such garbage that he got benched in that game. Players will have ups and downs and Kolb went into that game and played just as bad. And honestly, it was hell of a Ravens defense that year anyway.
