Vikings announce McNabb trade



EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Vikings have formally announced the trade with Washington that brings Donovan McNabb to Minnesota.

The Vikings made the announcement on Friday, shortly after league rules permitted new contracts to be signed. The Vikings sent a 2012 sixth-round draft choice and a conditional 2013 sixth-rounder.

McNabb had to agree to a restructuring of the five-year, $78 million deal he signed with the Redskins for the trade to work. The numbers on his new deal were not immediately available.

The Vikings also announced the signing of defensive tackle Remi Ayodele (ay-dell). Ayodele has been a starter for the New Orleans Saints the last two seasons and could be the replacement for Pat Williams.
