McNabb Contract: “will happen, maybe sooner than later”

Donovan McNabb is confident he’ll have a new contract with the Redskins at some point this season. But his focus has been and will continue to be preparing himself and his team to compete on the field.  Refreshing.. to say the least:

“We look forward to being able to sit down and talk about that. That will happen, maybe sooner than later. The thing about it is, at this particular point, I truly don’t focus on it. …For me, it’s just focusing in on the field and getting these guys ready…”

“I’ve never been in that situation before. For me to sit here and say it’s not tough, it’s a tough answer to give. But I’ll try. Put it that way, I’ll try. The thing about it, again, it’s me stepping out on the field. A new chapter in my book, new situation, new challenge. I look forward to it.”

He also spoke a little bit about McNabb’s Hell Week last week where his receivers joined him in Arizona for private workouts and team building:

“It was truly big for us. It was something that we’ll benefit from, I think, toward mid-season, toward the end of the year. I think for us coming into camp having an upper-hand a little bit.”

Training camp begins for the rookies on Thursday, July 29. McNabb and the veterans plan to attend beginning August 1.
