No, it is not Drew Rosenhaus. But Westbrook did hire Fletcher Smith, Donovan McNabb’s agent, in hopes of securing a long term deal with the Birds.
Now, with Agnone (Westbrook’s former agent) out of the picture and Smith as the lead negotiator, the possibility of striking a long-term deal probably exists again, although both the running back’s demands and the Eagles’ view of Westbrook are going to have to be altered some if the sides are to reach an agreement this off-season.
Smith, of course, has a history of closing major deals with the Eagles. Three years ago, he negotiated the 12-year, $112.9 million deal for McNabb that included a team-record $20.5 million signing bonus. A good first step for Westbrook to rekindle talks would be to sign the Eagles’ tender and report to the voluntary minicamp next month at the NovaCare Complex.
