Westbrook Returning to Eagles?

Posted: 03/07/2011 in Uncategorized

Brian Westbrook said on Sunday that he talks with Eagles’ head coach Andy Reid weekly and that he would be open to rejoining the Eagles. Westbrook said, “We always talk, and I would love to be back in Philly. So we’ll see how things go. I think I can help out. I think they have a very good group of young guys on this team at every position, but I still think I can help this team win.”

Westbrook did have some productive seasons with Philly, but those years are long gone. In San Fran last year, Westbrook was on the depth chart behind Anthony Dixon. Who is that? Not someone that should come between a decent running back and the field, that’s for sure…

Personally, I believe that signing Westbrook would be as stupid for the Eagles as moving their offensive line coach to defensive coordinator. Oh, wait, they already did that. If the Eagles sign Westbrook, it would tell LeSean McCoy that the organization has no faith in him, which in turn might lead to McCoy signing with another team. If this were to happen, then once Westbrook retires, the Eagles are stuck with no running back. Westbrook might think it sounds great to sign with the Eagles, but if the Eagles’ coaches feel the same way, they should be looking for another job.
