FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. | Donovan McNabb says he’s happy to hear Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid wants him back next season.

There was speculation about McNabb’s future after he struggled in consecutive losses to Dallas to end the season. The second defeat came in an NFC wild-card playoff game, and fans in Philly took losing the way they always do: badly.

But Reid said McNabb will be back for a 12th season in Philadelphia. The quarterback had the third-highest passer rating of his career in 2009 and made the Pro Bowl for the fifth time.

Following practice Wednesday for Sunday’s Pro Bowl in Miami, McNabb said the Eagles are close to being a title-caliber team.
