Donavan McNabb is retiring as an Eagle

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb will officially retire a member of the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday.

McNabb played 11 of his 13 seasons with the Eagles, leading them to eight playoff appearances, five NFC East titles, five conference championship games and one Super Bowl loss.

The 36-year-old McNabb hasn’t played in the NFL since 2011. He was traded to Washington in 2010, started 13 games for the Redskins that season and six for Minnesota the following year.

McNabb is the Eagles’ leader in may passing categories, including attempts (4,746), completions (2,801), yards (32,873), and touchdowns (216). He led the team to 100 wins, including nine in the playoffs. His 3,469 career yards rushing ranks sixth on the NFL’s all-time list.
