Donovan McNabb reboots his football and business careers
Before training camp opened and the Washington Redskins reported for duty, Team McNabb was hard at work, meeting members of the business community and rebuilding the quarterback's brand. Donovan McNabb is looking for a fresh start on the football field and in the business world, Rick Maese writes in a profile this weekend.
McNabb's business adviser calls the move to the nation's capital "a renaissance" for the quarterback, and McNabb has aligned himself with new corporate partners, discussed plans to work with the White House and plotted ways to launch his brand to new heights.
"I don't see myself as this big name. I just see myself as Donovan," McNabb said in an interview. "My mom sees me as Little Donovan; my dad, just son; whatever it may be. But I know that from what I've been able to accomplish and the things that I've been able to do, that some things I say and do kind of goes a long way for some people."
