Donovan McNabb joins the Comcast/NBC family, sort of

nfl-100930-ap-donovanmcnabbjpg-a6d960425e344e71

During the lockout, NFL players need to find other things to do.  Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel plans to dig ditches.  Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski is spending his time boxing.  Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco is spending his time finding ways to avoid boxing Tom Zbikowski.

And Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb is joining the media.

Specifically, McNabb will join Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic for coverage of the second round of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.  He’ll appear Thursday on SportsNet Central, at 10:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. ET.  He’ll also appear on Washington Post Live with Ivan Carter at 10:30 p.m. ET.

He returns Friday for the 6:00 p.m. ET SportsNet Central.

Meanwhile, we’re hoping that McNabb will choose to promote his appearances via a visit to PFT Live.

McNabb played basketball at Syracuse from 1995 through 1997.  And, in case you didn’t know, football.

    Terms of his deal are that he signed a deal for 5 years, $73 million, but has a buyout clause for 3 bucks should he be released before the Sweet Sixteen….

    Careful what you wish for Donovan, going from the NFL to media…just ask Tiki…

    Iam sure every football fan in Philly and D.C. will be happy to see his smiling face, especially after he failed to do anything in either city and smiled ear to ear.

    Hang it up, Donovan!

    Before being allowed on air they might want to teach him what happens if the game ends in a tie.

    Halfway through the broadcast he is benched for Antonio Gates, reason stated as a need to explore the teams depth.

    Maybe his basketball counter parts can explain the difference between overtime in basketball and football

    He would have been better off playing basketball. Completing 58% of your shots in basketball is considered successful.

    I hope he is a smashing success and they want to make him the next great sportscaster!! I sincerely mean it. I hope they offer him millions, he quits the Redskins and goes into broadcasting full time immediately. I really do. I hope he quits the Redskins and does ANY darn thing else!!!!!!!Please!!!!

    Maybe McNabb will decide to make a “comeback to football” after his stint in the media…..it’s been a while since he showed up in an NFL game.

    You suck Donovan!

    preparing for life after the League…he isnt the greatest, but good luck to him…

    I know McPuke has a YouTube video of him blowing chunks in a bowl game at Syracuse (but note to Shannahan … despite the obvious lack of 2 minute drill conditioning, he completed a game winning TD pass that time). Is there any footage of Donovan hurling on the hardwood, too ?

    Lets hope he doesnt fumble his lines.

    Or vomit on the national stage lol
