McNabb on bullying allegations – ‘That is ridiculous’


There is a new name that has been brought into the NFL Bullying conversation, Donovan McNabb. He has been accused by former teammate Shaun Andrews of bullying. According to ESPN,

Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb said he was “really taken aback” by bullying accusations from former teammate Shawn Andrews.


“That is ridiculous,” McNabb told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I don’t know what comments you expect to get from me, but that is news to me and completely false. For me to bully anybody, that sounds unbelievable.”


Andrews, a two-time Pro Bowl guard, said in an interview with Sync Weekly, a website based in Little Rock, Ark., that McNabb “was degrading to me and spread rumors.” Among the rumors, Andrews said, was one that he was gay.

These reports come during the situation revolving around the Miami Dolphins locker room, where Jonathon Martin accused Richie Incognito of bullying. Andrews spoke to a radio station earlier this month regarding McNabb and the accusations of his bullying behavior. McNabb, however, is still shocked that Andrews even made these allegations.

“I don’t really understand why this would come about, one, and two, how this would even be an accusation,” McNabb told the Inquirer. “If there’s anything I can say, I was more than open to Shawn. I always tried to be open to all the guys.”
