Philadelphia Eagles security asked a fan to remove his Donovan McNabb jersey at training camp Wednesday, but not because McNabb is no longer with the team. The fan, staying loyal to his team's former quarterback, was wearing the jersey of McNabb's new team -- our beloved Washington Redskins.

The fan told NBCPhiladelphia's Bird's Nest that he remains an Eagles fan and obediently removed the burgundy and gold and was allowed to stay at camp.

The fan, Jim Devlin, told Philadelphia Sports Daily that he chose today's outfit because he's a bit of a boat rocker and he feels McNabb was treated unfairly in Philadelphia.

Devlin was asked to remove the jersey because he was in a VIP area where no enemy uniforms are allowed, NBCPhiladelphia reported.

He was later seen wearing the jersey of McNabb's replacement at quarterback, Kevin Kolb.
