The Packers have an interest in free-agent RB Brian Westbrook, who has had a low-profile during free-agency.
The Packers are not deluded into thinking that Westbrook will be a super star at 31. But based on the success Ryan Grant had last year with Ahman Green pushing him, the Packers might just make the move, sources told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The paper says that the Packers will likely wait until after the draft before taking a plunge into free-agency for a backup running back.
Some other stories from Around the Web on a Tuesday.
- Negotiations between Jason Taylor and the Dolphins are not starting on the right foot, according to the Miami Herald. The paper is reporting that Taylor is a touch upset that news of a meeting was leaked by team officials. Could this be the thing that pushes Taylor towards the Jets? And was Fireman Ed the one who leaked the source?
- The Washington Post is reporting that QB Jason Campbell will attend the Redskins minicamp which begins on Friday. Campbell recently signed his free-agent tender, but is still hopeful of having a trade worked out in the wake of Donovan McNabb joining the team. Campbell, however, is expected to attend OTAs if he is still with the team following the draft. Hey, backing up McNabb — who could be in town for only a year — might not be the worst thing to happen to his career.
- The Seahawks are leaving the door open for T Walter Jones, but the Seattle Times does not believe that the cornerstone offensive lineman will be at the team’s minicamp, which begins Tuesday. His absence is not a deal breaker, but the Seahawks do have to make some decisions.
