The Redskins have played their pursuit of Brian Westbrook remarkably close to the vest. Now, Redskins offensive coordinator Mike Shanahan has clarified, albeit partially, their position on the free agent running back.
Shanahan bluntly stated, "We Want Him," and verified that the team has already made an offer, according to Rick Maese. This is the by far the most concrete comments a member of the Redksins have made regarding Westbrook.
Maese pointed out however, that there has been no word out of the Westbrook camp expressing that the interest is mutual, and that no progress has been made beyond the initial contract offer.
