Westbrook released from Eagles
B.YONEST “Sports” NEWZ: Philadelphia backfield is set to change
Brian Westbrook, phenomenal talent of the Philadelphia Eagles, is the latest running back to fall victim to my “Jamal Anderson” rule. The Philadelphia Eagles released Westbrook this morning. He had and extreme amount of injuries and concussions (the last three seasons) so it seemed inevitable. The question is will Westbrook be effective somewhere else?
Over the last six seasons, you couldn’t mention NFL running back without thinking of Brian Westbrook. He’s a complete running back. Great blocker, phenomenal out of the back field (as a receiver) and an obvious team leader. I imagine he’s going to be a hot commodity this off-season as many teams will be searching for the other half of their two headed monster. I think he’s going to end up in Minnesota, truthfully. Go Vikings.
