Ex-Eagles RB Westbrook to visit Rams on Saturday

Free-agent RB Brian Westbrook is going to St. Louis on Saturday for a visit and a physical with the Rams, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Westbrook missed eight games last season because of concussions, but he has been through vigorous testing and is eager to continue his career. The Packers also have been in contact with him, according to sources, and remain a distinct possibility.

Both the Rams and Packers have staffs well versed in the West Coast system run by the Eagles, in which Westbrook was a dynamic force in the passing game. He would be brought in to compliment the feature back in either locale, and he also would bring strong leadership and experience to the locker room.
