    If Sproles leaves via the free agency market, we will have nobody with experience in our backfield. I would not mind trying to bring in Brian Westbrook to be a backup to whichever RB we draft. He does have experience so he can be a mentor and I see him as a Chester Taylor kind of backup.

    What are your thoughts? Would you be fine with it? Do you think it might happen?

    I like Westbrook and hope I am wrong. He has issues with concussions. In my very limited knowledge and opinion he should think about retiring.

    We let an older LT go so now people want an older Westbrook?

    Like I said in the other thread; we sign Westbrook, the Eagles sign LT, then we trade them for each other.

    Dude, the guy has battled leg injuries the past 2 years, AND he has severe concussion problems on top of that. That's why Philly released him. Why the "F" would we want or need that kind of player???

    I wouldn't mind this.

    But who do we sign to take his place after he goes on the IR in week 2?

    no, just draft a RB, you don't need a stopgap for the RB position, most RB do well in their first year

    Westbrook should retire. Too many concussions for him to stay on the field.

    LT was released to get younger at RB and Westbrook is just as old and has missed more time then LT in the past 2 yrs.
