Not only would that reunite Westbrook with former Eagles teammate Donovan McNabb, but also his brother, Redskins cornerback Byron Westbrook, who told The Washington Post Tuesday that his elder brother is ready to go after two concussions last season.
“He did get cleared medically when he [recently] visited the Rams,” Byron Westbrook said. “They did a physical, a checkup on him, and the Rams did deem that he was good to play. Remember, at the end of the season, after the second one [concussion], he did get a change of helmets.
“It was more of a concussion helmet, which helped him take hits in the head. The question is going to be in the back of his mind, but you’re going to take those hits if you’re going to play this game.”
La Canfora reported on “NFL Total Access” Tuesday the Rams, the only other team Brian Westbrook has visited, continue to hold interest.
