    Westbrook cut by Eagles!

    just heard it on espn


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    first LT, now Westbrook. 2-3 years ago, both would have been untouchable.

    Re: Westbrook cut by Eagles!

    This is what I was hoping for when I selected Lesean McCoy as a late rounder in my keeper fantasy draft. Hopefully they don't go out and pick up a good running back.

    Re: Westbrook cut by Eagles!

    Now THIS is the 3rd down back my Packers need to go out and sign!!! I truly believe LT is "cooked" due to massive carry numbers over eight plus years. Westbrook can't give a team 20 touches per game and remain uninjured, but the guy still appears capable of playing. C'mon Ted, go get him and end the Brandon Jackson experiment...

    Are there any teams out there desperate enough to take a chance on Westbrook? The guy is an injury waiting to happen and can probably only be counted on to play for maybe half of the season....

    As much as I'd love to have either running back, Ted Thompson will not go spend money on a free agent, he's already put a lot of money into ryan grant, he'll draft a 3rd rounder before that'll happen....

    How?

    He's going into the second year of his rookie contract, and he's on another team.

    Re: Westbrook cut by Eagles!

    Be interesting to see what happens with LT, Westbrook and posiably T.Jones all being on the open market

    Re: Westbrook cut by Eagles!

    This pretty funny. I would bet that the head honchos at ESPN are not terribly pleased about this.

    National Football Post's Michael Lombardi hears that Brian Westbrook will struggle to pass a physical, not because of his concussions but because of his ankle and knee.

    And TO and maybe Randy Moss. Looks like they are setting up for the strike season a year from now.

    He is prime product that can be traded at a whim. Then they can pay him more on a new contract. Thomas Jones is probably going to be the starter again next year.
