PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Donovan McNabb mentioned the Super Bowl five times in a 14-minute news conference discussing his reworked contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.

McNabb got a big raise. Now he wants to deliver that elusive championship.

“With the type of team that we have, I think it’s important that we focus in on what we have to do in order to achieve that common goal, and that’s obviously to win a Super Bowl,” McNabb said Friday.

McNabb and the Eagles agreed late Thursday to restructure the final two years of his contract instead of extending his current deal. McNabb will collect $24.5 million over the next two seasons, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. That’s a $5.3 million raise over two years.
