Breaking News: Brian Westbrook Out after 2010?

I swear I thought i had inked the last Eagles story of the day. Apparently I was wrong, because more news has suddenly surfaced, and this time about a star player. John Clayton of is reporting that Brian Westbrook’s contract contained a bonus option for 2010 that was not renewed (worth 7 million. The wrinkle in the contract was one of many complicated amendments and clauses made to the nearly 60 page pact. Westbrook’s salary for 2009 rose from 4 million to 5.85 million for this year, and would rise to 7.25 million next year had the Eagles triggered the option. That would have been a huge cap hit for 2010. Westbrook, who just turned 30 on September 2, would also have been in the fold for 2011-2013 had the option been triggered by the Birds (assuming he was not cut or re-negotiated by then).
