Westbrook thinks about holding out of training camp
Running back reportedly unhappy with contract
By GEOFF MOSHER • The News Journal • July 18, 2008
Brian Westbrook, the Eagles' All-Pro running back, recently suggested that he might hold out from training camp in a display of discontent over his contract.
Toward that end, Westbrook has fired his agent, Fletcher Smith, and is leaning toward hiring Lamont Smith of All Pro Sports & Entertainment Inc., according to published reports citing an anonymous source.
Attempts to reach Fletcher Smith were unsuccessful Thursday.
The report also quoted Westbrook as saying he probably wouldn't hold out from training camp, but hadn't made up his mind.
Camp opens Monday at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., when rookies and selected veterans are scheduled to report by 5 p.m. The rest of the team is scheduled to report by Thursday evening.
