When we last saw QB Donovan McNabb, he had been released by Minnesota after starting six games for them last season before rookie QB Christian Ponder took over. Now he is a 35-year-old free agent who still has not caught on with a new team.
The experience in Minnesota, the time off, and his age have not deterred him from his goal of continuing his career, as he said friday that he has no intention on retiring.
“I sort of have some unfinished business,” McNabb said on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “I love the game, I have a passion for the game, and I look forward to continuing that on.”
McNabb has said he’s been training in San Diego with quarterbacks guru George Whitfield, working on mechanics and polishing up his skills to put on display for potential suitors as he attempts his comeback to the NFL. McNabb has passed for 37,276 yards and 234 touchdowns in 13 NFL seasons and led the Philadelphia Eagles to four NFC Championship Games before stints in Washington and Minnesota.
At this point in time, it would be hard to imagine him catching on with someone, unless an injury occurs.
