Quarterback Donovan McNabb is coming off two poor seasons since being jettisoned by the Eagles, but the 35-year-old said he plans to continue with his NFL career.

A free agent for the first time in his career, McNabb was 1-5 for the Vikings last season before being benched in favor of rookie Christian Ponder.

"I sort of have some unfinished business," McNabb told ESPN Radio in Chicago, per Rivals.com. "I love the game, I have a passion for the game, and I look forward to continuing that on. I will be playing somewhere.

"This is the first time I'm actually going through free agency and I’m excited about it because I get the choice, to pick and choose of the teams that are interested.

Who those teams might be is the big question, as there has been no stated interest in McNabb. Meanwhile, he's working out in San Diego with noted quarterbacks guru George Whitfield while getting into shape.

"I've been training hard and preparing myself out in San Diego working with George Whitfield, the obviously well-known quarterback guru, supposedly, for over the past month," McNabb said. "Just kind of refining the skills, working on the mechanics and getting back to a high level, an elite level. I'm just waiting for the opportunity to display that."

McNabb has thrown for 37,276 yards and 234 touchdowns in his career, but managed just 1,026 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions before being benched in Minnesota last season.
