ProFootballTalk.com is reporting the Eagles are set to release running back Brian Westbrook. When healthy, Westbrook was a real thorny problem for the Giants, but injuries and concussions cut way down on his playing time and effectiveness over the last couple of seasons.
Still, it's one less person the defense will have to deal with. Now, if Andy Reid would just rid of Shady McCoy and Leonard Weaver, what remains of the front-seven might breathe a little easier.
Oh, and remember those Giants and Jets tryouts former Dallas kicker Nick Folk had last week? Well, he signed with the Jets, according to an ESPN report. Just as well. The Giants need somebody who can kick off while Lawrence Tynes handles field goals. They also have first-year kicker Sam Swank on the roster.
Wasn't any harm in looking at Folk, though.
