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

Updating a previous item, Byron Westbrook has not been released and will make the trip to Arizona for Thursday's preseason finale.

It's rare that ESPN's Adam Schefter gets anything wrong, let alone a story that involves his buddy Mike Shanahan. There's likely more than meets the eye on this story, but the fact remains that Brian's little brother is still fighting for his job.

Redskins waived CB Byron Westbrook.

Brian's little brother was on the Redskins' practice squad in 2007 and 2008 before finally making the team last season. It's possible the Skins cut the special teamer a couple days early so he has a better chance of latching on elsewhere. You can be sure Brian will be lobbying for the Niners to give Byron a chance.

Redskins CB Byron Westbrook has been acquitted of DUI and several other charges stemming from his mid-February arrest.

He'd been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol, driving while impaired, negligent driving, and failing to stay on the right side of the road. Westbrook pleaded not guilty to all counts and was absolved of everything. Brian's younger brother will avoid league discipline.

NBC Washington reports that Redskins CB Byron Westbrook was arrested early Friday on suspicion of drunk driving.

Westbrook was pulled over at 2AM after police observed him changing lanes rapidly, and was discovered to have alcohol on his breath. Brian's younger brother failed "several" sobriety tests and refused a breathalyzer. With a new coaching staff in Washington, Westbrook could get a pink slip shortly.
