Westbrook Visiting Denver Today
Yesterday it was announced that f0rmer Eagles running back Brian Westbrook would be visiting the Denver Broncos today, after visiting former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan the day before in Washington D.C. Adam Schefter has expressed the Broncos interest as “serious”.
It is rumored that the visit to the Redskins was more out of courtesy, due to the fact that Westbrook and Redskins owner Dan Snyder were appearing at a NFL High School charity event. All signals point to that the Broncos on the other hand, have interest in bringing him on board.
The Broncos have a lot of players at running back, with not only Knowshon Moreno, but Correll Buckhalter, (another former Eagle) and J.J Arrington. The Broncos also have Lance Ball on the roster, but he seems to be a training camp body at best.
I would be excited in bringing in Westbrook. He is versatile, as he has been one of best receiving backs over the past few years, and while his career has been on the decline, I would not be surprised if he has a bit left in the tank. I vote yes on bringing in Westbrook.
