There’s been some talk in the sports circle about a looming lock out in the NFL if the owners and players’ association can’t reach a deal after this season. One of the reasons for a lot of chatter is that several NFL players – most vocally, Brandon Marshall of the Miami Dolphins – have said they’d put their skills to the test on an NBA court in the interim.
Well, new Redskins QB Donovan McNabb jokingly said he’s willing to follow suit. In an interview with Comcast SportsNet last night, McNabb made a few statements about his willingness to stick around D.C. for years. And if the lockout means it is playing a different sport? Why not! Via Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog:
“Well, we just drafted John Wall, (have) Gilbert Arenas, they’re looking for kind of a power guard that can come in, get a little physical down low. I can go play with the Wizards if things don’t really work out. Drop about 10, 15 basketball pounds…slap some boards a little bit, get up on the rim.”
