Former Eagles lineman 'disgusted' by treatment he received from Donovan McNabb


Donovan McNabb may have some apologizing to do do with former Philadelphia Eagles lineman and teammate Shawn Andrews.

Appearing in a lengthy interview on 97.5 The Fanatic, Andrews revealed some hard feelings toward McNabb by the way he felt McNabb treated him when they were teammates. In fact, Andrews was so upset that he said he was "disgusted" by it.

“I’m disgusted by it,” Andrews said.  “You know, like [Jonathan] Martin?  I feel the connection there because when he said he tried to befriend the people who talked about him, I know what he’s going through.

“People think that it’s just a band of brothers,” Andrews said.  “These are my co-workers, and I understood that really early on.  That you can’t trust everybody.”

Andrews stopped short of saying he was bullied by McNabb. But he did confess that he believed McNabb repeatedly talked about Andrews behind his back.

“If you put your heart, everything that comes with you, on the line for another person and they’re saying some very, very, very untrue things about you to other guys in our same league on other teams, how would that make you feel?” Andrews said.  “You’re putting your heart on the line, man.  You could break your neck, there’s so many things that you could do.”

Not only did Andrews complain about the treatment he received from McNabb, but he also wasn't happy about the way he was treated from everyone else on the squad, as well.
