Redskins are still a possibility for Brian Westbrook
An already crowded Washington Redskins backfield may add another Pro Bowl ballcarrier in the very near future.
At former teammate Donovan McNabb's annual football clinic for children on Saturday, free agent running back Brian Westbrook admitted that joining the Redskins is definitely a possibility.
"I liked Coach Shanahan when I went in there and visited," Westbrook said. "I think it would be a great opportunity and fit for me. It would just have to make sense financially as well. So that's where we're at right now."
Asked later if having his younger brother Byron and good friend McNabb on the roster gave the Redskins an edge in the sweepstakes, the Pro Bowler answered "yeah, definitely," adding that playing in his hometown would also be a great opportunity.
Westbrook confirmed that the Redskins' offer is still on the table and that other teams are still interested.
"Right now I'm just talking it over with my agent and trying to make sure that we find the best fit for me," he said. "Several teams are interested. We've been talking back and forth with several teams."
Westbrook drove up to the Marlton, N.J., clinic with his brother, and worked with children at one of the stations with current Redskins running back Clinton Portis and former Eagles teammate Leonard Weaver.
"Anytime you can come out here to support Donovan, it's a great opportunity for me," he said. "I enjoy being out here with the kids."
