Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb played for three teams throughout his NFL career, but he will always be remembered as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. As a sign that he will be an Eagle for life, McNabb will formally announce his retirement on Monday as a member of the Eagles.
The Eagles announced the plans on Sunday morning:
Donovan McNabb will formally announce his retirement as an Eagle on Monday. He and Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie will hold a press conference at the NovaCare Complex at 10 AM which will be broadcast live on PhiladelphiaEagles.com and our mobile app.
McNabb finished his career in Philadelphia as the team’s all-time leader in attempts (4,746), completions (2,801), yards (32,873), and touchdowns (216).
His career in Philadelphia came to an end when the the Eagles traded McNabb to the division rival Washington Redskins for a package of draft picks. McNabb played for one year in Washington before being traded to the Minnesota Vikings where he finished out his career.
Now, he returns to where it all started to call it quits.
