Donovan McNabb, the second overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft, built a Hall of Fame resume with the Philadelphia Eagles. He threw for nearly 30,000 yards and made six Pro Bowl appearances during his 11 year stint with the team. He also played one season for the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings before retiring in 2011.
In a era where first-round quarterbacks didn’t typically last long, McNabb was an exception. The Eagles legend won multiple awards and compiled one of the best winning percentages in NFL history.
After the end of his playing career, McNabb transitioned into TV, joining the NFL Network in 2012. He then moved to Fox Sports 1 in 2013, where he worked as a studio and game commentator. He also watched and commented on college football and basketball broadcasts for beIN Sports.
Scandal seems to follow former NFL stars wherever they go. McNabb’s troubled life has included a DUI arrest, famous friction with a teammate, and even a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him by a wardrobe stylist.
Besides his television work, McNabb is an active charity worker. He has worked with the American Diabetes Association to help children with Type 1 diabetes play sports and other kid stuff. He has also teamed up with St. Vincent de Paul and Bashas’ Market to give back for Mother’s Day. He and his wife, Raquel Nurse McNabb, founded the Caris Sports Foundation, which aims to level the playing field for youth sports.
