What Would Buddy Do?
Brian Westbrook pimps Buckhalter for a new contract, starting job
Posted on December 30th, 2008 at 5:14 pm by Cheesesteak Hoagie

Checked out the Brian Westbrook show on the podcast (file under “there is no Eagles-related content I won’t consume this week”) on ESPN 950.

Fun chat, everyone was obviously in a good mood.  The only thing that stuck out for me was when Westbrook talked about how Correll Buckhalter was going to get paid as a starter next season, and that it might be somewhere else.

I’m sure part of that is just B-West trying to promote his friend and teammate (one who’s never uttered a word of complaint regarding his role on the Birds), but part of it has to be a reflection of Westbrook’s ongoing conversations with Buck.

While I certainly wish Buckhalter the best, I have to imagine that it’ll be tough for a guy with his injury history to pull in too too much cash.  As a selfish Eagles fan, I hope he doesn’t get any offers that are too tempting.  Either way, look for at least one back to be part of the Eagles’ draft strategy.

(Did I just mention “draft strategy”?  What am I thinking?  PLAYOFFS PLAYOFFS PLAYOFFS!)

I hate to say it, because I love the contributions Buck has made for this team, but it’ll never happen. He’s on the wrong side of 30, with 3 serious knee injuries. No team will opt to give him big money rather than draft a kid out of college. I suspect that after trolling the waters, he’ll be back here in June or July.
