Tomlinsons' burst does seem slower, but I really think he was hurt by how much that offensive line has declined the last few years. If he goes into the right situation he can still put up pro bowl numbers imo.

Tomlinson or Westbrook would be a force if coupled with a younger runner, put either of them with Forte in Chicago, or with New England where they use a committee and while they'll never have 1500 yard seasons again they'll be useful and contributors, the worst thing for them would be going to a team and promptly riding the bench all game. They're not going to be feature backs again but their abilities to receive and pass protect alone should land them somewhere alongside a youthful guy.

I think Westbrook does. He's showed that he still has the burst and toughness, and doesn't have as many miles as Tomlinson. He just can't stay healthy. I think using Tomlinson like NE did Fred Taylor would be beneficial to him.

LT will use being cut as motivation and I think he'll do work on a playoff team.
and his #1 landing spot, IMO, New England.
It's not like he's of use once the team reaches the playoffs. Unless moping on the bench constitutes being useful.

I'd take Westbrook in a heartbeat despite the injury issues because LDT is just ******* terrible at this point.

Westbrook. He was able to put up around 4.5 ypc on a passing team whereas Tomlinson was in Lendale White territory. LT also has 3140 touches in his career, versus 1734 for Westbrook. I can see either one as a Kevin Faulk type player, and Westbrook will probably be more open to that than LT.
