Donovan McNabb set to officially retire as an Eagle on July 29
Former Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb will officially retire as an Eagle on Monday.
Donovan McNabb is going to take time out of his busy schedule of criticizing NFL quarterback contract extensions to officially retire as an Eagle on Monday, the team announced. McNabb and Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie will hold a press conference at the Eagles training complex at 10 a.m.
McNabb has been made it a point this offseason to weigh in on almost every quarterback contract extension that's been signed. When Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford signed his extension in early July, McNabb questioned it, "What has he really done for the Detroit Lions? Nothing."
McNabb's reaction to Tony Romo's extension in March wasn't much friendlier, "Wow really, with one playoff win. You got to be kidding me," he tweeted. McNabb also thinks Robert Griffin III is doing "too much."
All that aside, McNabb had a brilliant career in Philadelphia and will retire as the franchise leader in completions (2801), passing yards (32,873), and passing touchdowns (216). During his 11-year Eagles career, McNabb led Philly to four NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl appearance.
