NFL: McNabb starts 'new chapter' as Redskins QB

Advertiser Staff

ASHBURN, Va. Donovan McNabb says he would have loved to finish his career with the Philadelphia Eagles, but it's just something that didn't happen.

The six-time Pro Bowl quarterback was formally introduced Tuesday as the new quarterback of the Washington Redskins.

Seeing McNabb hold up a No. 5 Redskins jersey after 11 years with the Eagles was odd sight, with McNabb saying he's "starting a new chapter in the book of Donovan."

McNabb said he believes "in finishing what you started," but he spoke in positive terms of his time in Philadelphia, even saying he hopes he'll be cheered when he plays there with the Redskins this season.

The Eagles traded McNabb to the Redskins on Sunday for two draft picks.
