    Donovan McNabb is returning to the Philadelphia Eagles... For a night, anyway.

    McNabb said on his show on NBC Sports Radio this week that he will retire an Eagles this season. According to Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Inquirer, he will wait until Philly’s Thursday night contest against the Chiefs on September 19 to make it official, so Andy Reid, now the Kansas City head coach, can be present.

    This was reportedly the team’s suggestion.

    Led by the tandem of Reid and McNabb, the Eagles went to five NFC Championships and a Super Bowl appearance. McNabb was traded to the Redskins before the 2010 season and spent a forgettable season with Minnesota 2011. He was out of football and beginning a career as an analyst in 2012.
