Re: Brian Westbrook Meeting with Redskins on Wednesday

While we're collecting the best 2006 RB class, perhaps we could pick up the best 2006 QB's as well. Trade for Roethsliberger and Marc Bulger anyone??

Brian Westbrook Wants To Join Redskins

Former Philadelphia Eagles start Brian Westbrook says he wants to be part of the Washington Redskins organization.

There is one catch: the Redskins have not offered Westbrook a contract.

Westbrook told NFL.com that he had a great interview in Washington two weeks ago and he really wants to play in D.C.

"It went really well," Westbrook said of his talk with the Redskins. "I enjoyed them and the coaching staff. I'd love to be a part of that organization. They have a quality organization -- I just have to find out if I can fit into their system."

Westbrook, 30, played alongside Donovan McNabb in Philadelphia for eight seasons.

The big question is why would the Redskins sign Westbrook if they already have three veteran running back on their roster: Clinton Portis, Larry Johnson and Willie Parker?

McNabb is rumored to be a force behind the Westbrook tryout.

The relationship between Portis and new coach Mike Shanahan could be an issue.

Shanahan traded Portis to Washington when he was the Denver Broncos head coach in 2004.

Portis, 28, missed much of the 2009 season with a concussion, as did Westbrook.

Johnson and Paker signed free-agent deals with Washington in the offseason.

Westbrook's brother, Byron, plays for the Redskins and the Westbrook brothers grew up in the Washington suburbs.

Re: Brian Westbrook Meeting with Redskins on Wednesday

Think we offered him something, as well as the Rams and Broncos, he's supposed to decide soon.

Re: Brian Westbrook Meeting with Redskins on Wednesday

^ I don't think McNabb has to do much or will have much to do with it. The selling points are ....

1- He grew up in the area.
2- His brother is on the team.
3- The Redskins have the best RB core. All he has to do is be the 3rd down back.
4- The Redskins offer the best situation to get a ring.

Re: Brian Westbrook Meeting with Redskins on Wednesday

Ok so you actually think the Rams are a better team then the Skins? and to be honest I don't think the Bronco's are going to do anything special. I think their HC sucks. I'm almost betting he has a worse yr then last and gets fired after this coming yr. So in essance I feel the Redskins offer the best place for him to be.

Better HC/coaching staff

I mentioned better RB core cause Westbrook won't have to be the every down RB getting beat up again and not lasting the whole season.

I'm in no way saying the Skins will get their ring this yr just saying with this coaching staff Westbrook has his best chance of getting one. Tell me you think the Rams or Bronco's offer a better situation?

Re: Brian Westbrook Meeting with Redskins on Wednesday

I think one could argue the Broncos could offer him more in terms of playing time, and they also play in a weaker division so they could have a better shot at the playoffs.

Re: Brian Westbrook Meeting with Redskins on Wednesday

^Touche. But he knows he has not lasted a whole yr recently due to over use. He definitly would not need to be the work horse so he could stay healthy for a whole yr. I still don't like the HC in Denver. I'm predicting his team to get progressivly worse. Part of me says its between his and the players ego's.

After last yr I was not impressed with him and got the feeling his ego rubbed some players the wrong way. I don't think it was just Marshall either. I think others knew to keep their mouths shut. I could be very wrong.

On a side note though, Mike Shanahan has had the best offenses over a long period of time. Even his last yr when the team went 8-8 they still had the best running scheme and put up a lot of yrds. I would imagine any RB would love to be in his system knowing it's full proof and is proven to be RB friendly. Westbrook would be an idiot to not want to play under it, play on the same team as his brother, and have his best chance to possibly get a SB ring before he retires.

I think he wants to be here so that he can face the eagles twice a year

Re: Brian Westbrook Meeting with Redskins on Wednesday

And don't forget the Westbrook and his brother are from the area. He played high school ball at DeMatha, so it would be good place to possibly finish off his career if he can stay healthy.

I think he's definitely leaning towards Washington.

I love Westbrook as a player! Do you think too much would be made of the Eagles factor?

I don't think it's the number one reason for him considering to come here, but yeah, I would say it's definitely a factor. Hooking up with Donovan again just a few hours from Philly, playing on the same team as his little brother, and quite frankly, being a part of an organization with a rich tradition and great fan base have to give the Skins the edge. Sure he'd get more playing time elsewhere, but so what. At this point in his career, he's not going to be the featured back anyway.

But you have to think that if the Skins do sign Westbrooks, and I think they will, this particular backfield will be together for only one year. I think Shanny is possibly bringing in some new faces and vets here and there with an eye on next year's draft.
