New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez can have a successful National Football League career if he limits his turnovers and moves past criticism from fans, according to six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb.
Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha joined fellow Pro Bowlers Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Asante Samuel in the Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive secondary, shunning the New York Jets, Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers.
Donovan McNabb will make his first visit to Philadelphia as an opponent on Oct. 3, three weeks after the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints open the National Football League season against the Minnesota Vikings.
Andy Reid was fired by the Philadelphia Eagles following an 4-12 season that included an eight-game losing streak, ending a coaching tenure that produced nine postseason berths yet never a Super Bowl title.
Six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb may be the first National Football League player to sign a contract involving a charity donation, a band promotion during a press conference and an ice cream cone.
