Donovan McNabb who went to six Pro Bowls quarterbacking the Eagles will formally retire as an Eagle on Monday the team announced Sunday morning.

McNabb 36 went to the Pro Bowl in 2009 after going 10-4 in the regular season and taking the Eagles to the playoffs for the seventh time.

But he was traded in April to the Redskins where he won just five of 13 starts and then he finished his career in 2011 in obscurity with the Vikings going 1-5.

McNabb has not been in an NFL camp since he requested and was granted his release from the Vikings midway through the 2011 season but he had left the door open to returning to football until now.

Despite being the greatest quarterback in franchise history McNabb has alienated a lot of fans since he left Philadelphia by complaining frequently in interviews about the way he was treated during his years in Philadelphia -- even though he was actually treated fairly well -- and by showing a general lack of humility regarding his years with the Eagles.
