Dennis and Callahan Ponder How Donovan McNabb Contract Reports Went So Awry

Dennis and Callahan Ponder How Donovan McNabb Contract Reports Went So Awry Donovan McNabb was initially reported on Monday to be receiving an extension worth $78 million, including $40 million guaranteed.

By Tuesday morning, the number was changed to $3.5 million guaranteed, and that figure has been disputed by McNabb's camp on Wednesday.

Gerry Callahan had an idea of how that news got out a day after the contract story broke.

"[Redskins owner Dan Snyder] doesn't mind looking like he's a big spender and he'll do anything to win," Callahan said. "But when you're getting your [butt] handed to you by Michael Vick and the team that traded Donovan McNabb to you, and McNabb is struggling, it doesn't look good to say [you're paying him] $78 million."
