INDIANAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Vikings won't have to give up a second draft pick in the Donovan McNabb trade.
An NFL source said on Saturday the veteran quarterback did not reach the minimum playtime threshold to bring the Washington Redskins a conditional sixth-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft in addition to the 2012 sixth-rounder the Vikings already sent them.
McNabb played 348 of 1,037 gradable snaps (33.6%), which was believed to be near the threshold for triggering the conditional selection. He was benched late in a loss at Chicago in the Vikings' sixth game and didn't play another down before the Vikings waived him on Dec. 1.
The Vikings acquired McNabb on July 29 after agreeing to restructure his contract to a one-year, $5.05 million deal that sources said was worth up to $7.25 million in incentives.
They have their other six picks in this year's draft, plus sixth- and seventh-round selections from other trades. They expect to receive two fourth-round supplemental picks as well to bring the total to 10, but that won't be finalized until next month.
