Brian Westbrook to sign with Rams

With the number of teams seeking a No. 2 running back on the rise, one of them has found their man.

Brian Westbrook will sign a contract with the St. Louis Rams on Monday, according to ESPN’s John Clayton.

The former Philadelphia Eagles running back was checked out by the Rams back in the spring. He also drew interest from the Denver Broncos and a contract offer from the Washington Redskins. Instead, he’ll head to the Rams where he will serve as a backup up Steven Jackson.

Westbrook is a skilled receiver out of the backfield and St. Louis is probably mindful of the fact that it needs to surround quarterback Sam Bradford with as many tools as possible.
