    Washington Redskinsquarterback Donovan McNabb may not be guaranteed $40 million in his five-year, $78 million contract extension after all.

    Clarifying some of the details of McNabb's deal Tuesday, his agent, Fletcher Smith, said while the contract is worded so that it has "$40 million in guarantees," the Redskins do have an option to cut McNabb at the end of the season with no further money due.

    McNabb has been given $3.5 million this year as part of the new contract, but the rest of the five-year, $78 million package would come to naught if the team decides to cut ties.

    He said on his weekly radio show on ESPN980 Tuesday that he expects to be with the team next year and "after that as well."

    Also Tuesday, McNabb called Monday night's 59-28 loss to his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, a gut-check game and said he was "embarrassed" -- a word also used by many of teammates.

    "It felt like someone was playing a video game out there … a video game score," cornerback DeAngelo Hall added.

    "We just couldn't catch up to that tempo … it was embarrassing to watch," said linebacker Brian Orakpo.
