The NFL might have turned its collective back on veteran quarterback Donovan McNabb, but he's not ready to call it a career. McNabb is hoping to make a comeback and has resumed training in case a team decides to contact him. The 35-year-old indicated no plans to retire and has been dropping weight to get in shape.

So far, There's been no indication that any teams are inclined to pursue McNabb at this juncture.

“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 told ESPN Radio in Chicago. “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.”

Last year with the Minnesota Vikings, McNabb completed 60.3 percent of his throws for 1,026 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.

He started six games, but went 1-5 under center. Philadelphia Eagles.

For his career, he has passed for 37,276 yards, 234 touchdowns and 117 interceptions.

“I sort of have some unfinished business,” McNabb said. “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.”
