The Redskins are still interested in RB Brian Westbrook, formerly of the Eagles and brother of Redskin CB Byron Westbrook. Mike Shanahan was asked yesterday about the status of the Westbrook trade and here’s what he had to say: “No, but if you guys hear anything, just tell him that we’re ready,” Shanahan said. ”We want him to sign with us. Like I said, it would be some great competition. I really like Brian, what he has done, how he handles himself. I’m sure he’s weighing some options. It’s not too far away from home. Anymore I can do?”
So where does that leave the existing RBs? According to nfl.com, Kyle Shanahan has “given the nod” to Clinton Portis to start, leaving Larry Johnson and Willie Parker to fight it out.
Will this all change if Westbrook heads to DC?

I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
