The San Francisco 49ers have signed free agent running back Brian Westbrook to a one-year deal, giving Westbrook the second chance he's been seeking.
Westbrook has been looking to find a job, visiting several teams in recent months. He was released by the Eagles in February after
an injury-filled 2009 season.
Westbrook led the NFL with 2,104 yards from scrimmage in 2007, but missed eight games last season with a pair of concussions and
an ankle injury while scoring only two touchdowns.
Westbrook played eight seasons with the Eagles, usually in the backfield with new Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb.
