Brian Westbrook Inks Deal With 49ers

Former Villanova Football and Philadelphia Eagles standout Brian Westbrook has signed a 1-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers. According to sources, the deal is worth $1.25 million in guaranteed money and $1.25 million in incentives.

Westbrook was out of a contract and out of a starting job in Philly, and his desire to land with a winning organization led him to accept a backup job.

"My No. 1 concern throughout the process was going to a winning team, a football team that was coached by a man I respect and a team that had a winning tradition and players that would be able to achieve that," Westbrook said when formally introduced Monday night. "I think I found all of those things here in San Francisco. It was a long process but in the end I think it turned out well for me."

Frank Gore will remain the starting running back in San Francisco. The 49ers recently were put into a scramble by the sudden retirement of backup RB Glen Coffee after his rookie season.

...As a New York Giants fan, I couldn't be happier to see Westbrook out of my division...but it's tough to see him go to a backup role anywhere after such a stellar NFL career...best of luck Brian and now I can root for you 100%!...
