What Would Buddy Do?
PFT posts details on Westbrook

Profootballtalk is reporting that Westbrook is attending a funeral. Just hours after they posted completely unfounded speculation in re: this being about some confusion in the payroll department.

From Florio at ProFootballTalk:

But we can’t help but wonder whether the situation is connected to the issue of the unpaid $3 million roster bonus that Westbrook received. A league source says that it has nothing to do with the matter, but that the money still hasn’t been paid.

Per the source, the two sides are still working through the issue. The problem is that Westbrook has to pay the Eagles $3 million even though he likely only received $1.5 million or so after taxes in extra money. So basically Westbrook must cough up the gross amount of the extra bonus and wait for the IRS to refund his taxes that the Eagles had withheld.

(Please don’t take this to mean that we hate rumor-mongering; we don’t. We just think they should stick to McNabb for this sort of thing. Leave Westbrook out of it.)
