Parker the Odd Man Out in Washington When Westbrook Signs?


There’s a sense that Brian Westbrook is eventually going to ink with the Redskins, and when that happens, there will for sure be a huge logjam a the Skins running back spot. With Clinton Portis, Larry Johnson and Willie Parker on the roster already, what will happen when/if Westbrook signs?

One report says that it wouldn’t be a shock that Parker would be the odd man out. He has fallen off since leading the NFL in rushing a few years back before breaking his leg in the second to last game of the season.

Word out of Redskins minicamp is that RB Brian Westbrook, late of the Eagles, already has an offer extended to him. He could be joining the team very soon. If that happens, he might be moving into a spot currently occupied by off-season acquisition, Willie Parker. Once a star with the Steelers, Parker doesn’t look to have any zip in his step and may feel like he’s already got a spot sewn up. Head coach Mike Shanahan is throwing out the welcome mat for Westbrook.

Parker sat back and had to wait a long time just to get an offer from another team, and now it looks like he could be the odd man out when Westbrook arrives.
