Donovan McNabb is available again.

The Minnesota Vikings waived the 13-year veteran quarterback on Thursday, giving him the opportunity to sign with another team for the stretch run in a parting coach Leslie Frazier described as mutual.

Frazier pushed for the Vikings to trade a sixth-round draft pick this summer to the Redskins in exchange for McNabb.

McNabb went 1-5 as a starter, threw for four touchdowns and completed five passes of 25-plus yards.
