  • Brian Westbrook to visit St. Louis

    Just heard on NFL network that Brian Westbrook was going to make a trip to St. Louis and take a physical. I wonder if a contract could be coming, I can't say I would argue with him as a backup for Jackson.

      Brian Westbrook will take a physical in St. Louis

      Brian Westbrook will take a physical in St. Louis
      Posted by Mike Florio on April 24, 2010 12:17 PM ET
      After a couple of months on the shelf, running back Brian Westbrook could soon be getting a chance to continue his career.

      Jason La Canfora of NFLN reports that Westbrook will go to St. Louis today for a physical with the Rams.

      Of course, it remains to be seen whether he can pass a physical. Westbrook's knee has been a major problem of late. He also missed multiple games due to concussions in 2009.

      The Packers also reportedly are interested.

          How many years do you think he has left? Don't get me wrong, I would love to have a Westbrook/Jackson RB corp but we have a pick coming up and Stefan Johnson and other RBs available that could have a good upside. What do ya think?

            I would love Westbrook. With him being a back-up instead of a full time starter, I think he can still be deadly. Age is catching up to him, but with Jackson as the main starter, Westbrook has less stress and can use his remaining skills wisely.

              Wow, what a change of pace he would be. Even if he is just a shell of the b-dubs of old, he would still be better than what we have currently, especially since we missed out on best, mccluster, mcknight et all.

                  Let's hope he falls to the 7th.

                  But, I would rather just use 2 of our 7ths to trade back up now to grab him.

                      My preference would have been to draft a young RB to back up Jackson, but if Westbrook is healthy enough to give us a year or two in that role, I can wait until next year's draft to take another RB.

                        Westbrook now and think about getting a more permanent back-up next year. Then just pick-up BPA's with remaining picks and let them come in and compete.

                                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.

                                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....

                                After visit with Rams, Westbrook weighing options.

                                Running back Brian Westbrook was medically cleared during his weekend visit with the Rams, but he left town still weighing his options, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Tuesday.

                                "He wanted to go back (home) and think it over," Rams general manager Billy Devaney told the newspaper Monday. "We're just taking it one step at a time right now."

                                The Rams are seeking running back depth behind starter Steven Jackson. Kenneth Darby, a three-year pro with 61 NFL carries, is the most experienced backup currently on the roster.

                                Westbrook, 30, suffered two concussions last season with the Philadelphia Eagles, who released him this offseason despite his standing as the franchise's career leader in yards from scrimmage (9,785). He also ranks second in rushing yards (5,995) and third in receptions (426).

                                After suffering his first concussion Oct. 26 against the Washington Redskins, Westbrook missed two games, then returned for a Nov. 16 contest in San Diego. However, Westbrook suffered another concussion against the Chargers and didn't return until Week 16.

                                Westbrook, who also has dealt with knee, rib, ankle and foot injuries over the years, said he returned too soon from his first concussion.

                                The Associated Press contributed to this report.
