This news was reported moments ago by the Inquirer'seff McLane. One of the best running backs to ever wear midnight green, some would say the best, will retire as a Philadelphia Eagle tomorrow. More from McLane:


That December 23rd game will be against the Washington Redskins at the Linc.

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com breaks it down a bit further:

Westbrook finished his Eagles career in 2009 with 9,785 yards from scrimmage, a team record.  He also is only one of six players with 30 or more rushing touchdowns and 30 or more receiving touchdowns in his career.  In 2007, he led the league with 2,104 yards from scrimmage.


Some have been quick to say that LeSean McCoy is or will be the best running back in Eagles history. I say that when McCoy does it for as many years as B-West did or for longer, then we'll talk.

Westbrook had this to say after the news became public: 


We'll have more tomorrow as Westbrook takes the podium to put an end to an amzing career.
