    Hopefully Westbrook remains healthy. then he's our backup for Moreno! or maybe, if he still is very talented, be the broncos starter.

      It would be nice, but I'm not sure the Broncos want to pay 6 million annually when they already have two solid backs.

        Then why even bring him in for a workout?

              JJ Arrington probably, Westbrook is an upgraded version of Arrington. Plus Buckhalter and Moreno are locks, they complement each other well and are good friends. Plus Buckhalter has been a good mentor to Moreno.

                Because why not. If his price tag goes down I could see it. If some other team is willing to pay him that much I can't.

                  If Washington let him leave I have a good feeling we will snatch him up!

                    I wouldn't mind having Westbrook, I hope he can stay healthy though. I feel bad for the dude seeing all the concussions he has had, but when he stays healthy he is a darn good RB :salute!:

                      I honestly believe that Brian Westbrook is one of the all around best offensive football players I have seen in a while. So much of the Eagles offense was predicated on him either blocking, as a decoy, running routes, etc that it was ridiculous.

                      It will be interesting if he signs here - a great player and a great mentor. I wonder if he would be ok with a diminished role.

                        Where did 6 million annually come from? I doubt that his price tag is even close to that much. Look at the current value on older, onece elite RB in the league this year. Ladainian Tomlinson: 31 signed with jets for 2 years 5.2 million. That equals 2.6 mill per year. Thomas Jones: 32, signed with KC for 2 years 5 million. That equals 2.5 per year. Brian Wesbrook: 30, unsigned, and has a serious history of concussions. Seeing as how Westbrook is as old as the before mentioned, and has not been as productive as the other two backs of the same age over the past few years due to injuries, I doubt he would be able to haul in more than 1.5 million per year. That being said, I would not mind Denver paying that to ad depth at the position, considering Wesbrooks character, and leadership. He would be a good pickup.

                          If the price is right it would be good to sign him, his injury history is a little scary, but this offense is very young and could use some veteran leadership.

                            How would the depth chart look?

                            Moreno, Westy, Bucky?

                              I think it would be:

                              1.Moreno
                              2.Buckhalter
                              3.Westbrook
