Ravens are interested in Westbrook

The Ravens are well stocked at running back, but John Harbaugh would like to add another big name.

“Brian Westbrook definitely has a lot left,” Harbaugh said. “The Eagles know that and everybody else knows it. He’s
going to have plenty of opportunities to play . . . We’d be interested in
Brian Westbrook; I guess I can say that, he’s free.  We’ll just have to
see what happens.”

While we don’t doubt Harbaugh’s sincerity, Baltimore doesn’t look like a great fit.  Ray Rice is excellent on passing downs, and the team is committed to bringing Willis McGahee back as a high-priced reserve. 

Browns G.M. Tom Heckert was also asked about Westbrook, but passed on the chance to discuss him, citing that he hasn’t asked for permission to talk to him from the Eagles.

Perhaps his reluctance to speak indicates more interest than Harbaugh’s effusive praise.

    Is Westbrook interested in Ravens or in playing football anymore?

    Baltimore: where aging NFL players go to die.
    or
    Baltimore: the new Raiders.

    Harbaugh’s no Rex Ryan when it comes to rummaging through your old team’s castoffs to add personel.
    Sincerely,

    Harbs may be acting like he’s serious about Westy but trust me, he’s not. All coaches, GM’s, whoever tell tall tales during this time of the year. I would say that the intrest in TO is legit, though. Some of yall just don’t see things for what they are. Read between the lines.

    since when did the Ravens become the new raiders? McNair was 13-3 in his one healthy year with the Ravens, Samari Rolle was consistent for three years and Mason has been arguably one of the top five receivers on third down and still has some fight left in him. The Ravens know how to get vets to play, now you want to talk about a place where vets go to die talk about Chicago where receivers are nonexistent

    Baltimore was a helluva a lot better for Rod Woodson than Pissburgh

    On the ravens website there is an interview with Eric DeCosta, the ravens director of pro personnel. He said at this time of the year the organization will lie about anything in order to play things close to the chest. This comment by Harbs means absolutely nothing.

    Westbrook as mentor and backup to Ray Rice? sounds good.
