Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is adding a new role to his burgeoning media career.  After joining NFL Network in the fall, McNabb is now linking up with the upstart NBC Sports Radio as their "NFL lead analyst."  McNabb will also be a major part of a daily show that begins in April once the radio network launches full-time programming.  Details via NBC... "Six-time Pro Bowl quarterback McNabb, who established his storied career with the Philadelphia Eagles, will serve as an NFL lead analyst for NBC Sports Radio shows throughout the week and will also call in weekly to affiliated stations. He will be part of NBC Sports Radio's lineup of programming features on Super Bowl Radio Row this week in New Orleans, Louisiana. In addition, McNabb will play a big part in a soon-to-be-announced daily Monday-Friday talk show that will debut April 1, 2013, as the network expands its programming lineup. As a player, Donovan McNabb posted one of the best records in the NFL, averaging 10 wins per season over his 13-year career. With McNabb under center, the Eagles went to the postseason eight times, won the NFC East Division five times, played in five NFC Championship Games, and had their first Super Bowl berth in 24 years. His 4,746 pass attempts, 2,801 completions, 32,873 passing yards, and 216 TD passes are franchise records. McNabb, a former Syracuse University football standout and basketball player, is also a key player off the field, where he is actively involved in community efforts through his Donovan McNabb Fund. Donovan McNabb says, "As I continue to segue further into the broadcasting field, adding a radio relationship like Dial Global and NBC Sports Radio is the perfect next step. This platform allows me a weekly forum to communicate with fans on a personal basis and I'm excited for the opportunity."   It's an interesting move by McNabb as it shows he's heavily invested in making this media career work.  Not too many NFL analysts would take on an involved second gig like this in radio.  I thought McNabb would have made a bigger impact at NFL Network in his first year as one of their star additions, but perhaps he still needs to grow into a top role.  The field is so crowded at NFL Network it's easy for a new voice to get lost in the shuffle.  McNabb can step in and be a lead analyst for NBC Radio.  From NBC's perspective it's another "name" addition for their radio network joining Stan Van Gundy and Bobby Valentine as they and CBS look to build national sports radio networks from scratch this year.
