Former Eagles running back Brian Westbrook was very busy today giving his opinions on NBC Sportstalk and campaigning for LeSean McCoy to get a new contract. According to Philly.com, he went on Twitter today and started out by finding out what Eagles fans thought about McCoy getting a new contract.
He started by tweeting, “So basically everyone feels that he should get paid?”
Westbrook went so far as to say that McCoy should be paid like the best running backs in the NFL.
“Like Arian Foster? I think he is definitely if not the best, at least the second best back in the league right now and deserves it #payMccoy”
He went from there to mentioning that taboo word which has to scare Eagles fans and the Birds front office, “Hold out”.
“The only leverage players have in this situation is to hold out! Unfortunately its still not a lot of leverage!! #payMccoy”
Westbrook remembered the stress he was under while trying to get a new contract during the season. He doesn’t believe it’s the best formula.
“Players dont want to have to worry about their contracts during the season which is why the off season is the time to get it done”
