Highlights


Donovan McNabb joined the NFL in 1999 when the Philadelphia Eagles made him the 2nd overall selection in the NFL Draft. Since that time, Donovan helped restore Philadelphia to a proud franchise and has rewritten the Eagles record book. His contributions to the franchise on the field as a leader and offensive triggerman, propelled the Eagles to one of the best records in the NFL over during his 11 seasons, the best record in the conference, five NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl berth. Now Donovan embarks on setting the same standards for the Washington Redskins.
