49ers sign Brian Westbrook

Posted by Dany Sloan On August - 16 - 2010

Although his time in Philadelphia ended months ago, a part of Brian Westbrook will always be an Eagle. While the always active rumor mill reported that he was going to end up in such places as Denver, St. Louis, and even Washington with his brother Byron and another certain former Philadelphia Eagle.

Today Westbrook inked a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers for a base salary of $1.25 million which could double with unspecified incentives. With the surprise exit of Glen Coffee, the team needed a back-up for the All-Pro Frank Gore.

In sticking with recent Eagles tradition, the team will be facing the Niners in week 5 in San Francisco, a week after they face the former face of the franchise. Two great storylines in what is already shaping up to be an interesting season.

While I wish Westbrook the absolute best, he has much less left in the tank than McNabb. Since he spent half of last season out of action, this reduced role in a offensive structure that’s similar to the one in Philadelphia should allow him to stay healthy and take on a leadership role.

Good luck to #36…except in week 5.
