Eagles gave Westbrook bonus twice accidentally
 
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...v=ap&type=lgns

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Brian Westbrook received an extra $3 million from the Philadelphia Eagles in an accounting error.

The star running back intends to pay the team back after getting his roster bonus twice. However, the Eagles filed a grievance with the NFL against Westbrook because the money hasn't been repaid yet, a team spokesman said Saturday.

Westbrook finished last season with a career high of 1,217 rushing yards and was sixth in the NFL with 1,916 yards from scrimmage. He signed a five-year contract extension worth $24.9 million during the 2005 season.

If he has it why should he give it back? I mean, the Eagles don't need that $3 million.

doubt it, he aint that kinda guy

they filed a grievance so that the mistake wont penelize their cap.
Westbrook said he'd pay it back but he hasent yet, and the Eagles filed the grievance to save themselves from a cap hit.

But the real kicker is, Westbrook might have already made his taxes and al with the extra 3 million which im guessing is bad for him.

Looks like the Eagles could get getting rid of Westbrook. -.-

An eagles fan beating down an eagles player... not to mention one who's been extremely important for his team past season... now that's a first.

I assume you misread the post.

That is IMPOSSIBLE, he is an Eagle for the next five years, at least.
