Apparently, it was a money move. If we could get this guy on the cheap, I would LOVE this pickup. A lot of people around here are saying we should go after Kevin Faulk. Westbrook is like Faulk, but good. He seems like the perfect back to fit in our system, can catch out of the backfield and work in space, is a good leader, and an overall terrific running back. I also don't think he would mind joining old mates Dawkins and Buck again... although Buck might not be happy about sharing carries with him again.
Downside? Westbrook is getting older, is injury prone, and clearly isn't the player he used to be. But, in a 3 back rotation in our system, I think he could make a solid impact for us.
McXanders, go do work!
