Brian Westbrook to visit Broncos

Running Back Brian Westbrook may get to reunite with former Eagles Correll Buckhalter and Brian Dawkins. He is en route to Denver, and is going to meet with the Broncos tomorrow, per Adam Schefter's twitter:
Filed to ESPN: Fresh off visit with Redskins, former Eagles RB Brian Westbrook is now en route to Denver to visit the Broncos on Thursday.
If Westbrook were to sign on with the Broncos, he'd be joining his former Philly back-up Correll Buckhalter, who rushed for over 640 yards last season in Denver. Knowshon Moreno, J.J. Arrington, and Lance Ball are among Denver's six RB's who are currently on the roster.

Last year, head injuries haunted Westbrook, who only started seven games, while rushing for 274 yards. The 30-year-old is entering his 10th NFL season, and has drawn interest from the Rams, as well as the Redskins, who are coached by fromer Bronco Head Coach Mike Shanahan. In 2007, Westbrook surpassed 2,000 yards from scrimmage, and scored 12 touchdowns.

The Broncos are reportedly very serious about him, and for good reason. He has some gas left in the tank, and there's not much depth behind Moreno and Bucky.

I would be all for adding on Westbrook, he's a vet that's been there, and done that. As long as he is healthy, he would be a great pick-up for the Broncos.
