I’m not sure. That’s one of those things that really is up to them," Westbrook told Rather. "I’m under contract another year, and I would love to be in Philadelphia. There’s no other team that I would love to play for more than the Philadelphia Eagles. But it’s a situation where in the NFL, younger, cheaper is better for teams. It’s one of those things. It’s part of the business. I experienced it when I was younger, and I experience a different aspect now. You have to try and find out, for the team, what’s better for them."
Brian Westbrook is owed a lot of money next year, over seven million in fact. Coming off a year where he produced next to nothing, it's going to be a tough decision whether to keep the talented, yet injury prone Westbrook around. Plus, running backs don't typically fade away... their production falls off a cliff.
As little as Westbrook did last year, it's worth nothing that in the 08/09 season he scored 14 touchdowns. That was even more than his huge 2006 and 2007 seasons. So, it may be foolish to write #36 off just yet.
