The Vikings and Donovan McNabb agreed to the veteran QB’s release on Thursday.
“I had a discussion with him and we both agreed mutually that this was the best decision for both parties,” Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier said on Thursday. “He was and has been a great player for our league for a long, long time. I have a lot of affection and love for Donovan. A tremendous person and a tremendous competitor, and we really wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors. He did a good job for us here. He really helped our young quarterbacks. He did a good job in a lot of ways.”
McNabb is a 13-year NFL veteran who joined the Vikings at the end of this past July. In 6 games as the Vikings starter, McNabb completed 60.3% of his passes for 1,026 yards with 4 TDs and 2 INTs. He was replaced as the team’s starter before a Week 7 matchup with the Green Bay Packers.
McNabb spent the first 11 seasons of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles after being selected with the #2 overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft. Following his final year in Philadelphia in 2009, McNabb was traded to the Washington Redskins in April of 2010 and played one season there before being dealt to the Vikings.
