DONOVAN MCNABB OFFICIALLY RETIRING FROM THE NFL AS AN EAGLE ON MONDAY - Donovan McNabb is going to officially retire from the NFL as a Philadelphia Eagle on Monday, according to the teams’ official website. McNabb and Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie will hold a press conference at the Eagles training complex at 10 a.m. ET.
McNabb is the franchise leader in every major passing category, including attempts (4,746), completions (2,801), yards (32,873), and touchdowns (216). He led the team to a combined 100 regular season and playoff wins. He also led Philly to four NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl appearance. His 3,469 career rushing yards rank sixth all-time among NFL quarterbacks.
McNabb, who is now an analyst for the NFL Network, has recently been best known for his criticism of almost every quarterback who’s received a contract extension during the offseason.
He also recently said that he truly wouldn’t care if Eagles fans booed him during his retirement ceremony. We’ll see how that goes on Sept. 19. The Eagles have scheduled a retirement ceremony for McNabb when they host the Kansas City Chiefs and McNabb’s former head coach Andy Reid. (Photo: Associated Press)
