According to a report posted on ESPN.com
A news conference is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET.
Westbrook, 30, has been with the Eagles since 2002, when he was drafted in the third round out of Villanova. He is the franchise's all-time leader in yards (9,785).
Westbrook has certainly had his share of injuries, but has been relatively durable over the past few seasons. In addition he fits the RB as WR mold that Martz likes to employ and has a skillset that matches up similarly to a guy named Faulk. I know there is a lot of debate about adding another back, either through the draft or by bringing in a veteran. For my money, Westbrook would be the top candidate, as he likeliy comes with less baggage, mileage and ego that LT and has reportedly been a good tutor to the other backs that have been around/under him on the Eagles.
From a financial standpoint I also think this makes sense compared to the alternatives. He's likely to come with a lower price tag than LT and be more bang for the buck. I know he's not he bruising, move-the-chains type runner that others on this site are clamoring for, but I'd still love to see him in a Bears uniform.
What do others here think? Would LT make more sense? A third option, someone like the oft mentioned Chester Taylor?
