Brian Westbrook remains one of the highest-profile free agents in the NFL, but with training camps opening this month, he says he has multiple suitors and expects to sign with the right team soon.
“My goal is to go to a good, quality football team that can win,” Westbrook told the Washington Post.
Westbrook says he’s been talking to “six or seven” teams, including the Redskins, and that he’ll sign just as soon as he determines what the “right place” is.
And when Westbrook finally does play, he says he’ll be better than he was in 2009 because he’s healthier than he was in 2009.
“That’s why I know this season is gonna be different,” Westbrook said, “because I’ve got time to work out, time to get in shape, time to train, time to be the best player I can be. There’s no doubt about it when I go out and I’m healthy. This year I’m healthy. No excuses.”
