Westbrook Released

Brian Westbrook has been released by the Eagles.  Jeffrey Lurie and Andy Reid are scheduled to hold a press conference at 3pm to discuss the matter, and offer some "insight" into their thought process. Bad knees, concussion issues, old age and being owed $8 million next year are all factors that play into this decision.  Knowing the Eagles, I'd say the $8 million was the nail in the coffin.


It will be strange not seeing No.36 in Eagles green next season, considering the offense was run through him for so many years.  He gave us all some great moments on the field, and he'll be remembered for being one of the most exciting players in the NFL. His best season came in 2007 when he led the NFL in yards from scrimmage, and was named first team All-Pro. He will be missed.


Question: Where does B-West rank in terms of All-Time Eagles? Top 5?

  1. Sad day but you could see it coming....His only weakness was injury. I hope he retires and I think he might after the concussion problems.

    He could have used the extra cash to help pay for his brother's DUI.

    I still suffer from "what if" he wasn't hurt in the '03 regular season finale at Washington. Fckin' Pinkston.
