Donovan McNabb hasn't made up mind on retirement

Donovan McNabb continues to make statements that leave him wide-open for petty digs about his relative worth.

Last week, the veteran quarterback said he would "absolutely" vote himself in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. (Unless they open the Hall of Very Good, this probably will not happen.)

On Saturday, McNabb told NFL Network's Rebecca Haarlow he hasn't made a decision on retirement. McNabb was in Philadelphia on Saturday for Brian Dawkins' retirement news conference

Of course, McNabb has reached a stage where continuing or ending his career isn't necessarily his decision anymore.

McNabb hasn't put together a truly productive season since 2009 with the Philadelphia Eagles (22 touchdown passes, 10 interceptions, 92.9 passer rating), and he's coming off ugly runs with the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings.

After he lost his starting job last season and the Vikings cut him loose in early December, McNabb was vocal in his wish to latch on with another team for the stretch run. No takers emerged.

Time will tell if that was a harbinger of things to come.
