The Washington Redskins have signed quarterback Donovan McNabb to a five-year contract extension. According to ESPN, he can make up to $78 million.

Agent Fletcher Smith said that “about” $40 million will be guaranteed. ESPN NFL Insider Michael Smith is reporting that the deal could be worth $88 million should all the incentives be reached.

“Now he doesn’t have to focus or concentrate on what next year will bring,” said Fletcher Smith. “He knows he’s going to be a Redskin; now he can focus on playing football.”

This news came out before the Redskins take on the Philadelphia Eagles. The two teams play at FedExField in Landover, Maryland.

“Once the regular season started, we really were aiming toward the bye week, and it came together,” Redskins general manager Bruce Allen said. “I think Coach and myself said that Donovan’s going to be here from the beginning, and Donovan has been real clear in his intent of being a Redskin. So I think it just puts an exclamation point on it.”

The Redskins are 4-4 on the season. This season, he has gone 159 of 277 for 1,971 yards. He had seven touchdown passes and eight interceptions.
