MINNEAPOLIS — The Vikings and Redskins are engaged in trade discussions that would bring quarterback Donovan McNabb to Minnesota.

A person with knowledge of the discussions told The Associated Press on Wednesday that no deal has been completed, but that both sides were working to try to make it happen. The person requested anonymity because the deal was still being negotiated.

McNabb would have to agree to restructure the deal he signed with the Redskins. Foxsports.com first reported the discussions.

McNabb would give the Vikings a veteran quarterback while they groom first-round draft pick Christian Ponder, who has already tweeted that he welcomes McNabb to the team but also plans to fight for the starting job.
