If this had happened a few years ago, it would've been life-changing fantasy football news. Of course, a few years ago, Brian Westbrook(notes) had stable knees and a non-battered brain, and the Broncos could roll out 1,000-yard rushers like they were playing the arcade version of "10 Yard Fight."

Both of those eras seem like a long time ago. Westbrook, who's still looking for a home as a free agent, will take a visit to Denver, according to Adam Schefter.

Sounds like Denver is serious on RB Brian Westbrook, who suddenly has options with the Broncos, Redskins, Rams and who knows who else.

As noted by Schefter, Westbrook once visited the Rams, but walked away without a deal, and recently, did the same thing with the Redskins. It's a pretty nice turn of events for a guy who went weeks and weeks without any interest at all, and now, he's suddenly got (at least) three decent options. Good for him.

I hope the guy finds the fit he's looking for. His production throughout his career takes a backseat to almost no one's, yet it doesn't feel like he's been fully appreciated by the general football-watching public.

Whatever he's looking for -- the right amount of touches, a team that can contend for a title, or just one last payday -- if any running back deserves to find it, it's Westbrook.
