Brian Westbrook Signs With 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers have signed veteran running back Brian Westbrook to a 1-year deal. Less than a week after getting word that 2nd year player Glen Coffee was retiring, the 49ers have replaced him. This is a nice move for the 49ers, as they have two proven running back now, with Gore and Westbrook. Westbrook has suffered from concussions throughout the years and he might not be able to play through another one. Don't let this scare you away from Gore as he will still get the bulk of the work, as Westbrook has to prove his health first before they will give him the touches. The story here.
