Was just thinking today that we really ought to hear soon about somebody, somewhere, being interested in adding Brian Westbrook, who has been on the market a while now. No sooner thought than blogged, by Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Silverstein writes that the Packers are thinking of bringing in Westbrook, who of course flourished here in a very similar offense. One would think Packers coach Mike McCarthy would be able to get a good sense of what Westbrook can and can't do at this stage of his career from Green Bay alum Andy Reid.
Certainly, Westbrook could be effective in a limited role, especially in a West Coast attack. The Packers play on natural grass, which is a must for Westbrook -- his chronic bad left knee swelled up whenever he practiced or played on turf. This sounds like something that ought to work out.
