NFL: Former Eagle Donovan McNabb to Retire on Monday

Jul 28 2013, 8:24pm CDT | by

Quarterback Donovan McNabb will retire as a Philadelphia Eagle on Monday, July 29.

Donovan McNabb is retiring as a Philadelphia Eagle. 

According to Mike Kaye of Philly.com, McNabb will sign a one-day contract on Monday and will declare his retirement at a press conference which will be held at the NovaCare Complex. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie will join him. 

McNabb previously hinted in May that he will retire with the Eagles but no formal schedule has been released until Sunday. In addition, he will be honored at halftime of Philadelphia's September 19 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, who are coached by Andy Reid, McNabb's former mentor with the Eagles. 

Kaye notes the ceremony is a formality and "nice gesture" from both sides considering how McNabb has clashed with the fans and media in years past. McNabb told the Philadelphia Daily News last week he doesn't care if he gets booed by the fans, per ESPN. 

"To me, it's an appreciation for the people who truly respected what I did. I've always lived by the motto that you can't please everyone. So, for me, if I get booed, it wouldn't be anything new. If they cheer, that would be great. Obviously I'll be out there with my family and the teammates I played with. If there are any boos, I will smile."

He was selected second overall in the 1999 NFL Draft and led the Eagles to five NFC Championship games and Super Bowl XXXIX, losing to the New England Patriots, 24-21. 

During his 11-year tenure in Philadelphia, McNabb emerged as the team's leader in almost every passing category. These include attempts (4,746), completions (2,801), yards (32,873) and touchdowns (216). His 37,276 career passing yards places him 17th in NFL history. He was also a threat as a rushing quarterback as he amassed 3,469 career rushing yards - good enough for sixth all-time among NFL quarterbacks. 

McNabb was traded to the Washington Redskins prior to the 2010 NFL season, concluding his final year in the league with the Minnesota Vikings in 2011. He played just six games for the Vikings before he was eventually released.

Two of the NFL's best teams battled to a dramatic, last-possession finish. As the game went to overtime, it was already being hailed as an all-timer, an instant classic. Instead of an explosive final act, though, the game ended with a quick curtain call for half the cast—and the star of the show, a legendary quarterback, was left waiting in the wings. In the aftermath, the football-watching world had a good hard talk about NFL overtim ...
