Redskins still interested in signing Westbrook

On Saturday afternoon, it seemed all but guaranteed that Brian Westbrook would be a member of the St. Louis Rams. However, the Rams refuted the reported Westbrook signing, and the former Eagle remains a free agent.

Now, the Washington Redskins -- one of three teams along with the Rams and the Broncos that were initially interested in Westbrook -- have restated their interest in bringing Westbrook to the nation's capitol.

"Like I told you, I'm not sure what direction he's going," Mike Shanahan said. "But we've been entertaining that option. I'm not sure what direction he's going at this time."

In non-angry words, that means "We're interested, but we're not sure if we can overpay for an additional 2000 Pro Bowl running back."

The 'Skins already have Clinton Portis, Larry Johnson, Willie Parker, Ryan Torain and Keiland Williams on their depth chart. Bringing in Westbrook would be good for them in terms of really boosting the backfield's pass-catching ability, but they'd probably have to admit a mistake on either Parker or Johnson and cut them loose, simply because there aren't enough carries to go around.

Of course, the upshot for Washington looking at Westbrook is that he already has an excellent repoire with starting quarterback Donovan McNabb, and plugging him into Shanahan's offense with an already comfortable situation would be fun to watch.
