One more banished RB to consider...

Brian Westbrook was released by the Eagles today for financial reasons.

I know the guy is getting older and has had too many concussions to count, but I would still consider this pick-up for our short term.  Unlike LT, I don't see Westbrook drawing a lot of attention this off season due to those concussion issues.  With that said, how about reuniting him with Shurmer.  They are familiar with each other, meaning Shurmer would know how to utilize him in our Offense.  Westbrook is coming from a very similar offensive scheme, thus making an easier transition to a new team.  More importantly, our offense really benefits from a solid recieving back such as Westbrook.  This would be a perfect fit.

Limit the guys carries to make sure that he has the best chance of staying away from those recurring concussions.  His presence allows us so many more options by putting him in motion prior to the snap (move him to the slot to create a mismatch).  He could also be a solid lockerroom presence with a veteran voice.  I am all for this, as long as the price is right.  What says you?
