McNabb spent 11 years with the Eagles after being drafted No. 2 overall in the 1999 NFL Draft. He became a highly decorated player during his career and is arguably the best quarterback in Eagles franchise history. He currently holds a majority of the team's passing records. After unsuccessful stints in Washington and Minnesota, McNabb left football to pursue a sports media job. He's currently a sports analyst for Fox Sports Live.
McNabb officially announced his retirement in late July of 2013. The Eagles retired McNabb's "5" jersey last season during halftime of the Eagles-Chiefs game in September.
