Donovan McNabb to Officially Retire from Philadelphia Eagles Monday

Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb will officially retire as a team member on Monday.

According to the team announcement, McNabb and Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie will hold a news conference to make it official at the team’s facilities at 10 a.m. EST.

McNabb will be honored at halftime during the Eagles’ Sept. 19 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

He recently told The Philadelphia Daily News that he “wouldn’t care” if he is accepted by Eagles fans.

“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 told the newspaper.

The Eagles’ quarterback went 92-49-1 with the team when he played there. He also holds the franchise records for completions (2,801), passing yards (32,873) and passing touchdowns (216).
