Donovan McNabb      

Six-Time Pro Bowl Retired NFL Quarterback

A first round draft pick in 1999 by the Philadelphia Eagles, and the second player overall, Donovan McNabb has raised the bar with superstar accomplishments on and off the playing field. He took over as the Eagles starting quarterback in game 10 as a rookie and never looked back. His .612 (98-62-1) win percentage as a starter would rank near the top among active QBs. His 98 wins rank 12th in NFL history behind eight Hall of Famers and three sure-fire selections (Breet Favre, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning).

Donovan quickly established himself as one of the finest players in Eagles franchise history. His 4,746 pass attempts, 2,801 completions, 32,873 passing yards, and 216 TD passes are franchise records. Donovan piloted the club to more wins (92), postseason games (16) and postseason victories (9) than any other QB in team history.

On April 5, 2010, he was traded to the Washington Redskins. Despite starting just 13 games in 2010, he led the Redskins to more wins than they totaled during the 2009 season. Donovan joined his third team in three years when the Redskins traded Donovan to Minnesota on July 27, 2011.

The portfolio of companies that he has endorsed has run the gamut of food and beverage, athletic footwear, financial investing, cars, communications and pharmaceuticals. Over the years he has trumpeted the benefits of the following companies: NFL Youth Football, Nike, Reebok, Campbell’s Soup, Verizon, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, GlucoThin M.D., Visa, CapitalOne, DirecTV, Yardbarker, Hershey’s, IHOP, EA Sports, Sony, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper, vitaminwater, Cadillac, Miller Ford, Sunoco, AirTran Airways, Mounted Memories, Steiner Sports/Syracuse and McDonalds.

McNabb also has started the Donovan McNabb Fund, which has pledged support to raise awareness of diabetes. It has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the American Diabetes Association, as well as provided scholarships to many students.

With a degree in communications, McNabb was named to the Syracuse University's Board of Trustees. He has put that degree to proper use by becoming a broadcaster for NFL Network.
