Broncos Backing Off Brian Westbrook Pursuit

ESPN - [Full Article]

Indications from Denver’s minicamp Friday is that the team is softening its pursuit of free-agent running back Brian Westbrook.

Westbrook visited Denver in May and the Broncos were satisfied with what they saw from the back, who is recovering from several injures. The former Philadelphia star has also talked to Washington and St. Louis.

The Broncos, however, are now focused on how third-down back J.J. Arrington fares in training camp.

Fantasy Impact: 

From a fantasy perspective, St. Louis would be a more ideal situation than Denver or Washington for Westbrook.
