FormerPhiladelphia Eagles running back Brian Westbrook will officially retire as an Eagle, Wednesday, August 29 at 11:30 AM at the NovaCare Complex. Westbrook will be honored at Lincoln Financial Field on December 23 during halftime against the Washington Redskins. Westbrook will arguably go down in history as one of the best running backs in Eagles history.
Eagles Chairman/CEO Jeffrey Lurie on Westbrook: “I will always remember Brian for the electrifying, game-changing plays he made during his great career in Philadelphia. He was one of those players you knew could score from anywhere on the field and one of the most exciting players I have ever watched. He was a great runner, receiver and returner and was certainly a fan favorite. We are thrilled to have him retire as an Eagle and we look forward to honoring him at Lincoln Financial Field on December 23 against the Redskins in what should be a very exciting atmosphere.”
