This time it’s not an April’s Fools joke.

According to espn.com, the Eagles have reached a deal to trade quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Redskins. That’s right, he’s staying in the NFC East.

Bellow is an excerpt:

The Philadelphia Eagles have reached agreement on a blockbuster intra-division trade that will send perennial Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins according to multiple sources close to the situation.

The two sides still must finalize language, but McNabb is now headed to Washington. Sources said the deal involved the Redskins’ second-round pick in the 2010 draft and either a third- or fourth-round pick next year, depending on several factors.

The move means the Redskins now have a new starting quarterback and the Eagles have a new one as well in Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick is now in line as the team’s backup.

Read the whole story here:

The timing of the news is surreal as we are just hours away from the Phillies opening up their 2010 season. Boy is the city is going to be buzzing. Philly Sports Blogs will have much more reaction to McNabb going to a divisional rival once the story is officaly confirmed.

For now?

Wow. Just wow.

    How stupid is this front office. Why would you trade him to a team in the division that NEEDS a QB. Way to go boys, you just made the Skins better.

    I feel the same way. They could have robbed Al Davis blind!

    I’m glad they traded that bum. I don’t even care that it’s the skins I just wanted him gone. Let Dan Synder clean his puke off the field. Let’s go Kolb baby

    You can’t worry about whether you made the Redskins better, but more about getting the best offer available. The Eagles just got the 37th overall pick in this year’s draft for a guy who will turn 34 during the season and until the past couple of seasons was oft-injured. The Eagles also will get either a third or fourth rounder next year as well. I’m thinking the Redskins made the best offer, and the Eagles took it. Deals like this one are why the Eagles are consistently better than the other teams in their division – they use their heads, and not their hearts, when making personnel decisions.
