<!-- end mod-article-title --> <!-- begin story body --> <!-- template inline -->Even though the Washington Redskins (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=was) have added Larry Johnson (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4485) and Willie Parker (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5880) to a backfield that includes Clinton Portis (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3579), the team has invited Brian Westbrook (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3619) for a visit on Wednesday, according to sources.

NFC East blog

ESPN.com's Matt Mosley writes about all things NFC East in his division blog (http://myespn.go.com/blogs/nfceast).

Westbrook comes highly recommended by his former Eagles teammate, Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1753), who apparently has made his case for the running back since McNabb was acquired by Washington in a trade, a source said.
Westbrook, who was released by the Eagles in February, has passed a physical with the St. Louis Rams (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=stl), where he also has a familiarity with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, a former Eagles assistant.

Westbrook's ailments that have passed physical screenings include knee and ankle injuries, as well as multiple concussions.

The Redskins have the first organized team activity May 17-19; their level of interest in Westbrook is unknown. Dialogue between the two sides has been ongoing.

Chris Mortensen is ESPN's senior NFL analyst.
