Westbrook overpayment issue solved

This has really drug on forever, but you may remember form earlier this year a story broke about a mistake the Eagles accounting dept had made. They inadvertently paid Brian Westbrook 3 million dollars. No small mistake...

Well since then the Eagles and Westbrook have been wrangling back and forth about how the money will be repaid. Westbrook & the Eagles had already paid taxes on the money and his people had already invested some of it... so it was very complicated as to how much money he should be repaying to them. The final resolution to the issue according to Adam Schefter is that the Eagles will not pay him the majority of his $2 million base salary this year and he's already paid back around a million dollars.

I really need to get a job with the Eagles...
