The Green Bay Packers are exploring the possibility of adding former Philadelphia Eagles running back Brian Westbrook to their already potent offense.
Though it’s unclear whether the Packers are serious enough to sign the 30-year-old veteran free agent, two sources said Monday that the club definitely has shown interest in him. Westbrook became a free agent when the Eagles released him Feb. 23.,
Westbrook has taken a lot of hits over his eight-year career and last year missed eight games due to a pair of concussions. There was some speculation that he would retire after the Eagles released him, but he appears determined to play again and wants to show people rumors of him being finished aren’t true.
UPDATE: ESPN calls me "clairvoyant"
Although he won't make any claims to the effect, Aaron Nagler of Green Bay Packers blog Cheesehead TV might be clairvoyant. Well, either that or the actions by the Packers' front office are becoming easier to read. Back in late March, Nagler made the speculative suggestion that the team would become interested in free agent Brian Westbrook the longer he is on the market.
Well, Westbrook's still on the market, and guess who's interested. Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel received info from two sources on Monday that the Packers have "shown interest" in Westbrook.
Clairvoyant? Hardly. But I do check my Tobin's Spirit Guide quite regularly... ;)
