Broncos backing off Brian Westbrook

Brian Westbrook successfully drummed up interest after the NFL Draft, but he’s yet to make a decision about his future.  There are indications that at least one suitor is tired of waiting.

Bill Williamson of ESPN writes Denver is “softening” its pursuit of the former Eagles running back.  Instead, the Broncos want to see how J.J. Arrington looks in a third down role during training camp.

The Redskins remain interested in Westbrook, although we wonder if they would like to finally get an answer from him, perhaps before the team’s mandatory minicamp next week.  Westbrook visited the Rams first, but St. Louis appears to be his fallback plan.

    McDaniels is an idiot. I just read that he is likely to release Brady Quinn which mean that the #2 would be Timmy TeBlow

    I could see the skins taking him, giving him like 6-8 plays a game. He could do some work. Obviously they haven’t thrown some big contract at him or we would have made his decision.

    Big Stretch,
    Brian Quinlan’s reading comprehension should be questioned, as should yours. That is NOT what the article stated.

    After those concussions last season, he should just retire.

    Is it the ring? Is it the quest for a championship? I hope so. I can’t think of any other “nobel” reason for this guy continuing to play.
    I’m sure some guys play 6-8 years without concussions, then, BOOM! two in two weeks and they think, “…oh, it’s not that bad”. Apparently it is. A couple of bad dings followed by some questionable financial decisions, followed by the wife walking out and 3 years later, this guys living under a bridge. It’s no SNL skit.
    Hey Brian! Walk away.

    Brian, you’re on your last leg. Go to Washington or go away.
