Earlier this offseason Donovan McNabb talked about his belief that he can make a return to the NFL and how he had his eye on a few select teams. But with training camps and preseason slates across the league now complete, it appears teams still aren’t interested in the services of the former Pro Bowl quarterback. While front office personnel, players, and coaches around the league have long considered McNabb in decline, it’s often the athlete himself who is the last to realize it. It appears he now does.
With no offers to play in the league on the table, McNabb is nearing one in which he’ll join the rapidly expanding media that covers it.
Liz Mullen of the BusinessSports Journal reports that McNabb is close to inking a deal with a major television network. It’s unknown at this point with what company or in what role the second overall pick of the 1999 NFL Draft will land, but he has previously appeared on a variety of ESPN’s programming.
