Donovan McNabb last made an appearance in the NFL as the quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings before the team handed over the offense to Christian Ponder and now he has finally decided to call it quits. McNabb was out of football for a year and on Monday he announced his retirement during his radio show on NBC Sports Radio.
McNabb finished his career playing a year with the Vikings and a year with the Washington Redskins, but he will always be remembered as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Because of that, McNabb will be retiring as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles later this year.
According to Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles have suggested that McNabb officially announce his retirement when former head coach Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs come to town on September 19th — Week 3 of the season.
McNabb holds nearly every significant Eagles passing record and he had a 92-49-1 record as a starter, which included five NFC championships.
For McNabb, it is only right for him to retire in Philly.
