The Redskins should definitely sign Brian Westbrook, who was cut by the Eagles yesterday. When healthy he’s still one of the best running backs in the NFL. He’d be a perfect complement to Clinton Portis, who is one of the worst pass catching running backs in the NFL. The Skins would immediately get much better by signing him. Don’t worry about the criticism of signing a big-name player at a skill position who is past his prime. He may have a few good years left — even if he only has one good year left, everything in the NFL nowadays is year to year. The Saints went from 8-8 to winning the Super Bowl. The Cardinals were in the Super Bowl two years ago with a 9-7 record.
