PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania - The Eagles tendered restricted free agent Brian Westbrook on Wednesday, giving Philadelphia the right to match any offer he receives or a first-round pick from any team that signs the running back. The one-year tender will cost the team $1.43 million, but the Eagles have the option of signing the third-year player to a long-term deal.

Westbrook had a breakout season for the Eagles, scoring nine touchdowns and leading the team with 1,515 total yards. A versatile, dual-threat weapon, Westbrook rushed for 812 yards on 177 carries and led all NFL running backs in receptions with 73 for 703 yards last season.

A third-round draft pick out of Villanova in 2002, Westbrook played in his first career Pro Bowl after joining the NFC squad as an injury replacement.
