McNabb-Westbrook together again?

Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook might still be teammates after all.

Westbrook was in Washington for a visit with the Redskins/ If the Skins decide to take a chance on Westbrook, he will be paired with McNabb, who the team acquired earlier in the offseason.

Bellow is an excerpt from an Associated Press report:

The longtime Philadelphia Eagles standout visited the Redskins on Wednesday. General manager Bruce Allen called it “a good meeting” and that he will “probably have some meetings down the road” with the 30-year-old back.

The Redskins already have plenty of experienced star power at the position. In addition to 28-year-old incumbent Clinton Portis, they’ve added 30-year-old Larry Johnson and 29-year-old Willie Parker this offseason.

While I still think Westbrook can be a great third down back I don’t see Washington would bring him on considering their depth at the position. If they do sign him, expect Portis, Johnson or Parker to be cut in training camp — maybe even two of the three.

For the Eagles sake I hope this doesn’t happen. Having McNabb come to town in a different uniform will seem strange enough without Westbrook being beside him.

    I understand a competitive athlete’s need to compete, but I would really hate to see Westbrook play for the Redskins or any other team and sustain more concussions.

    Doug, I have a feelng we are headng a bad ending with Westbrook. I hate to see him carted off the field anymore. He was too good to go out that way.

Got something to say?
