Shortly after Philadelphia’s season ends — and it could be as early as Sunday — Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is expected to meet with team owner Jeffrey Lurie and head coach Andy Reid.
It’s a meeting McNabb has wanted since he was briefly benched during Philadelphia’s loss at Baltimore.
The men still have not had a chance to sit down and thoroughly rehash the events that surrounded McNabb’s benching, and how the incident will impact their future together.
Eagles sources said McNabb is looking for a commitment from the Eagles. The commitment could come in the form of a contract extension, a topic McNabb broached last week. But it is not the money that is driving McNabb, who has two years remaining on his current contract; it’s the security.
Either the Eagles are willing to commit to McNabb as their quarterback of the future or they’re not. But it sounds like McNabb wants answers that will determine whether he returns to Philadelphia or whether he becomes this offseason’s Brett Favre.
