McNabb Gets a Raise

Eagles and QB restructure last two years of McNabb's contract

The Eagles announced Thursday night that they've restructured the last two years of Quarterback Donovan McNabb's contract.

McNabb and head coach Andy Reid will be available to the media on Friday at 10 am in the NovaCare Complex auditorium and will have complete coverage with Eagles Live! beginning at 9:30 a.m.

McNabb’s current contract is set to expire after the 2010 season. He was lobbying for an extension to his contract, but he'll get more money instead.

To explain it all (we hope), McNabb and head coach Andy Reid will answer questions in a 10 a.m. press conference Friday at the NovaCare Complex auditorium.

"The Philadelphia Eagles organization and the entire city of Philadelphia are fortunate to have a quarterback the caliber of Donovan McNabb," said head coach Andy Reid in Thursday night’s press release. "He has proven himself to be a talented player on the field, a caring member of the Philadelphia community, and a winner."

Entering his 11th season as an Eagle, McNabb is the franchise's all-time leader in passing yards (29,320), touchdown passes (194), attempts (4,303), and completions (2,534). He has led the Eagles to more regular season victories (82), and playoff appearances (7) than any other quarterback in team history.
“Donovan has played a large part of this team’s success over the last 10 years,” said Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie. “He has been a professional in every sense of the word.”
“We are thrilled that this all worked out,” said Eagles president Joe Banner. “He is a great football player, a great person, and someone who gives back to the community. We are lucky to have him in Philadelphia.”
