Donovan McNabb worked out with several Cardinals players this week in Tempe, Ariz., joining in lockout practices organized by star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.
Might McNabb throw passes to Fitzgerald once the lockout is over?
McNabb, a six-time Pro Bowl selection when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles, endured a difficult 2010 season after an offseason trade sent him to Washington, where he had a tempestuous relationship with coach Mike Shanahan. The Redskins are expected to set McNabb free once the NFL and its players reach a labor agreement.
The Cardinals need a quarterback after using four -- including rookies John Skelton and Max Hall -- last season following 2006 first-round draft pick Matt Leinart's release one week before the season opened, and McNabb is local. He lives in Chandler, a Phoenix suburb.
"The next couple years, we'll see what happens," McNabb told the newspaper. "Who knows where I'll be anyway? I'm looking forward to that and when that time comes, step in there and be ready to go."
Derek Anderson started nine games but twice lost the starting job, the second time after sustaining a concussion, and Skelton started the final four games after a separated shoulder ended Hall's season.
