  • Keep your eye on Brian Westbrook!

    I know there was a thread about getting B-West wen he got released but this is sorta different.

    iight so many mock drafts have us taking Jahvid Best in the 2nd or a 3rd round running back mainly because they are BPA.

    But what if we do trade out of #33 or we just dont take a RB in both rounds. So far there hasnt been much for Westbrook.

    If he is still available after the draft and we dont draft a RB should we get Westbrook?

    Pat shurmur has first hand knowledge on how Westbrook helps the QB and he is not the main back so Westbrook will rest alot more.

    This is how i see it. Bulger is on the roster until we get Bradford. So after the draft we cut Bulger and sign Westbrook to that roster spot for the money that we save on the Bulger release.

    We've been targeting so many former Eagles and Giants, it would only make sense if we took a look at him. I'm not entirely sure if Westbrook would be ready to accept a lesser role quite yet. Perhaps he still feels he has the ability to start, and maybe he does, but certainly not over Steven Jackson in St. Louis.

      Brian Westbrook to be released
      by AvengerRam_old

      Given Shurmur's connection to Philly, we should keep an eye on this one. If Westbrook (who was rumored to be considering retirement at one point) is healthy and willing to take on a No. 2 role (for a No. 2 price), he could be a good option....

      Westbrook expected to make decision by Monday

      Free agent RB Brian Westbrook is expected to make a decision on where he is going to play in 2010 by this coming Monday. The teams that are in contention for signing Westbrook are the St. Louis Rams, Denver Broncos, and the Washington Redskins. It is not said whether there is a fourth team in contention to sign Westbrook, but we’ll have to wait and see.

      The former pro bowler had many stellar seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. Due to injuries, he was limited to playing time last season. Then in February of this Westbrook was released by the Eagles. He had reportedly been offered a contract by the Redskins a couple of months ago but turned it down, trying to wait and see if anything better on the market popped up.

      Westbrook’s best option would probably be in St. Louis, because he would have more playing time behind Steven Jackson. Even though the Rams don’t have a great chance of contending in 2010, Westbrook would likely recieve the biggest contract offer from the Rams.

      Washington doesn’t seem like a good fit for Westbrook due to a crowded backfield already. While Denver has just signed another duo of running backs, he doesn’t seem like a fit there either.

      The only issue with the Rams signing Westbrook, is that he has had knee troubles in the past. Since the Rams have turf on their fields then it is more of a possibility of him suffering an injury. Either way, the Rams need a proven backup for Steven Jackson, and Brian Westbrook might just be the best fit.

      Anyone Wish We Would of Stepped Up and SIGNED WESTBROOK??
      by 1980RAMS
      I am. I think that is going to come back and bite us. Jackson is our offense lets be frank. He needs someone to help him withe the load and westbrook would have helped. Worst of all he goes to the ***** who are already is good position.

      Ohhh man this year doesn't look fun....
