HAS THE EAGLE LANDED? THE BIG LEAD's Jason McIntyre cites sources as saying that former NFLer Donovan McNabb is "in advanced talks" with FS1 to "possibly join" the net. McNabb's role "isn't yet defined." A source said that he "likely would be an analyst" on "Fox Sports Live." McNabb was an NFL Network analyst last season (THEBIGLEAD.com, 5/23).
