The Maricopa County Sheriff's Department confirms Donovan McNabb spent one day in jail as part of a plea agreement stemming from a December DUI arrest.
"I have had other high profile athletes who have been incarcerated with no problems and this latest athlete follows that same pattern," the sheriff said. What remains unclear is how the entire episode flew under the radar for nearly half a year. Either way, it's now in the past for McNabb, who appears poised to keep his multiple jobs in the media.

TMZ reports Donovan McNabb was arrested for DUI in January, and agreed to serve one day in jail as part of a plea agreement.

That explains the mugshot, but doesn't explain how the news was kept under wraps for three months. It's also unclear if the matter is resolved or ongoing. Out of the league since 2011, McNabb officially retired in September. It's his first-known brush with the law.

Donovan McNabb has reportedly been arrested in Arizona.

The infamous Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has released a mugshot without explanation, but ABC Phoenix reports McNabb has indeed been arrested. It appears to be in relation to an unresolved traffic issue. More details should be available shortly.

Free agent Donovan McNabb announced on NBC Sports Radio that he will retire as a member of the Eagles in September.

McNabb, 36, says the team suggested having the ceremony on September 19, when Andy Reid and the Chiefs come to town for a Thursday night game. McNabb hasn't played since making six starts for the Vikings in 2011. He's since moved on to NFL Network as an analyst. McNabb played 11 seasons with the Eagles, leading them to six division titles, five NFC Championship games, and one Super Bowl appearance. He completed 59 percent of his passes for 37,276 yards, 234 touchdowns, and 117 interceptions. McNabb also ran for 29 scores, finishing with a respectable 85.6 QB rating.

Although he's yet to officially retire, Donovan McNabb says he's focusing on his media career.

An analyst for NFL Network, McNabb announced Monday he's also signed a radio deal with NBC Sports. ESPN's Sal Paolantonio hinted earlier this month that McNabb could reunite with Andy Reid in Kansas City, but McNabb says it's not happening. "I'm focusing on perfecting what I'm doing right now, and that's working (in media)." McNabb turned 36 in November.

Speaking in a Wednesday radio interview, ESPN's Sal Paolantonio floated the idea that Andy Reid could sign free agent Donovan McNabb as a back-up if he lands in Arizona.

"Reid had to be talked into trading McNabb to Washington by (GM) Howie Roseman, kicking and screaming," Paolantonio reasoned. "I’m just warning you, don’t be surprised if it happens." Paolantonio — a highly-respected reporter — appears to be more thinking out loud than suggesting McNabb to Arizona is a distinct possibility. McNabb, of course, spent 2012 on the couch. We would say it would be a terrible idea, but then again, Arizona is the same franchise that's given Max Hall, Derek Anderson, Ryan Lindley, John Skelton and Brian Hoyer starts in recent seasons.

Free agent Donovan McNabb would reportedly consider a return to the NFL "if the right team called."

CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora suggests the Cardinals and 49ers as potential landing spots. Even though McNabb lives in Arizona, the team has never shown interest. The Niners have no need for his services. Rotoworld heard from a reliable source last month that McNabb had ballooned well beyond his playing weight this summer. It's hard to imagine him playing meaningful snaps for any team in 2012.

Free agent QB Donovan McNabb has been talked into getting leaner this offseason, sources tell ESPN.com.

McNabb is still working out in the hopes that he'll be able to latch on as a backup somewhere. It's probably wishful thinking, unless a rash of quarterback injuries strike the league. McNabb has never been a willing backup and his mobility is shot at age 35.

Free agent QB Donovan McNabb said there's an 80-to-90 percent chance he'll play in the NFL this season.

McNabb, 35, has garnered no known interest on the open market this offseason. However, he says he has "about three teams that I'm looking at." McNabb, who declined to name those teams, will probably need a rash of injuries at the quarterback position during training camp just to land a backup gig.

Eagles coach Andy Reid would "highly recommend" free agent Donovan McNabb.

"I still think he can play," Reid said Monday. "He looks physically good. He looks like he could go out and play tomorrow." With journeyman Trent Edwards, the unproven Mike Kafka and rookie Nick Foles behind Michael Vick in Philly, a McNabb reunion would make some sense on paper, but there's a zero percent chance it happens. Admittedly willing to play anywhere, McNabb isn't likely to be guaranteed anybody's No. 2 job.

Free agent Donovan McNabb told SportsCenter Monday that he's dropped "15 to 20 pounds" while training with QB guru George Whitfield this offseason.

McNabb and Whitfield have focused on on-the-beach training, working in the sand and water. McNabb's physical fitness was a major issue in Minnesota last season, and in Washington the year before. Attempting to make a comeback at age 35, McNabb acknowledged that his wishlist consists of 32 potential suitors. In other words, he is willing to play anywhere as his career fades.
Mon, May 14, 2012 10:58:00 AM

Free agent Donovan McNabb says he has no plans to retire, and is hoping to sign with a team before training camp.

McNabb had previously said he was "undecided" about retirement. "I sort of have some unfinished business," McNabb said in a Friday radio interview. McNabb says he's been "training hard" with quarterback guru George Whitfield. McNabb hasn't taken a single visit this offseason, and can't hope for more than a No. 3 job at this stage of free agency.
Sat, May 5, 2012 12:33:00 PM

Free agent Donovan McNabb said Sunday that he's undecided about retirement.

McNabb got no pre-draft free agency nibbles, and he's probably not going to get any after the draft, either, with rosters filling up. McNabb appeared Sunday at former teammate Brian Dawkins' retirement ceremony. It was his first visit to the Eagles' NovaCare facility since his trade to the Redskins in 2010.

Coach Andy Reid has not "entertained" the idea of free agent Donovan McNabb returning to the Eagles as a backup.

"I haven't gone there," said Reid. "I think it's tough for a guy that's been the guy for that long to come back." Translation: It's not going to happen. McNabb's agent recently said three teams were interested in his client, though he's not known to have made a visit yet. McNabb isn't going to land a starting job.
Wed, Mar 28, 2012 11:28:00 AM

The player rep for Donovan McNabb was noncommittal when asked if the free agent might accept a backup job this season.

"We really haven't discussed that yet," the agent said. "Right now he's weighing all of his options." McNabb is "keeping his options open" and "hasn't closed the door on anything." We wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he's thrown his last NFL pass.
