The Redskins failed to tender restricted free agent CB Byron Westbrook, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Westbrook went undrafted back in 2007, but was picked up by Washington and has been there ever since. Brian's little brother spent his first two years on the practice squad, but has contributed on special teams and provided depth at corner over the last three seasons. There's a good chance he lands a camp invite despite the non-tender. Thu, Apr 5, 2012 03:47:00 PM
