By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher The Philadelphia Eagles have re-signed quarterback Donovan McNabb. He has received a two-year contract extension. The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. This two-year extension will expire after the 2010 season. McNabb signs this agreement before the team begins training camp in July. He will not have to deal with distractions from contract negotiations as the team prepares for its 2009 season. He signed this extension after guiding the Eagles to a 9-6-1 record last season. The 32-year-old guided the team to the second-best NFC East record in 2008. Only the New York Giants had a better record within the Division with a 12-4 mark. Despite the second-place finish in the Division, McNabb took the Eagles on a deep run in the playoffs. The Arizona Cardinals defeated the Eagles 32-25 in the NFC Championship game at the University of Phoenix Stadium on January 18th, 2009. McNabb went 345 of 571 for 3,916 yards. He had 23 touchdown passes and four interceptions. The 3,916 passing yards on the season were the most in his career up until this stage in his career. It was also the seventh most in the league overall. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees led the league with 5,069 yards. Kurt Warner, Jay Cutler, Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers, and Peyton Manning had more yards than McNabb. Up until this point in his career, he has appeared in 134 games. He has made 128 starts. McNabb has gone 82-45-1 in his career. He has thrown 2,534 completions of 4,303 attempts for 29,320 yards. He has thrown 194 touchdowns and 90 interceptions.
