Goodbye and Good Luck, #36

I knew it was coming, but it still sucks...
The Philadelphia Eagles announced Tuesday they will release running back Brian Westbrook.

A news conference is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET Tuesday to announce the move.

"Brian is one of the greatest Eagles of all time and he is an even a better person and leader," coach Andy Reid said. "In my mind, there has not been a more versatile running back that the NFL has seen. I had a conversation with Brian this morning to let him know. This is by far the most difficult part of this job. We wanted to make this move in order to maximize Brian's chances of landing with another NFL team."

Westbrook, who has been with the Eagles since 2002, is the franchise's all-time leader in yards (9,785) after being selected in the third round from Villanova.
That's the NFL. But as an Eagle fan and Nova alum, it hurts a little more. Good luck, Brian -- thanks for stuff like this.
