Report: Former Eagles QB Donovan McNabb could soon sell Phoenix-area home
PHOENIX — Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is reportedly one step closer to offloading his home in suburban Phoenix.
Realtor.com reports McNabb’s lakeside Chandler home is under contract, meaning it is in the process of being sold. It is listed at $850,000, but the agreed upon price could be different.
The home — located near Alma School and Ocotillo roads — has been on the market for about a year. McNabb has been splitting time between the Chandler home and another in Moorsetown, New Jersey.
McNabb and his wife purchased the estate in Chandler in 2003 for $642,000. It has five bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,900 square feet.
The home has a chef’s kitchen complete with refinished cabinets and granite countertops.
There is a fireplace in the family room and negative-edge pool with a barbecue in the backyard, which sounds like a pretty good place to entertain the lineman who protected you on the way to the Super Bowl.
It is unknown if McNabb is planning to buy again in Arizona. It’s possible he may be looking to move on from some legal troubles.
McNabb played 13 seasons in the NFL. He spent time with the Eagles and the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings before retiring in 2012. He made six Pro Bowl appearances.
He was later hired as an analyst for two major networks. In 2013, he appeared on “Fox Sports Live,” Fox Sports 1’s flagship program.
He was asked to leave the programs following his legal troubles.
