Donovan McNabb, who spent 11 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, will retire as a member of the organization. During his NBC Sports Radio show on Monday, McNabb said there is a ceremony scheduled for Sep. 19 when the Eagles host Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Reid drafted McNabb with the No. 2 pick in the 1999 NFL Draft and the two went on to make nine playoff appearances, including five appearances in the NFC Championship and one trip to the Super Bowl. McNabb compiled a 92-49-1 record as the Eagles starting quarterback. He holds a number of team records, including passing yards and touchdown passes.
While the Eagles have not officially announced the plan, McNabb would join a number of former teammates in retiring as Eagles. According to Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News, Brian Dawkins, Brian Westbrook and Tra Thomas have all retired as Eagles after finishing their playing careers with different teams.
After 11 seasons in Philadelphia, McNabb was traded to the Washington Redskins before finishing his career with the Minnesota Vikings. He will also have his college number retired by Syracuse this season.
