Philadelphia Eagles' running back Brian Westbrook got paid, twice:
Team officials have confirmed that, because of an accounting error, Westbrook was twice awarded a $3 million roster bonus for 2006 that was part of the five-year, $25 million contract extension the five-year veteran signed in November 2005. Westbrook reportedly has acknowledged the overage and agreed to repay the money.
Hey, didn't these guys ever play Monopoly? When Rich Uncle Pennybags receives an accounting error in his favor, he doesn't give the money back to the bank. Also, I never mentioned this, but my name is Brian Westbrook. That extra $3 million is probably for me. KD is just my nom de plume. It's all right here on my birth certificate, but let me borrow some Wite-Out® first.
Westbrook's agent could not be reached for comment on the extra bonus . . . it is not clear when, or how, the overage was discovered by the Eagles and Westbrook.
It may have been discovered when Westbrook's agent called team officials from Grand Cayman and said, "Finders keepers motherf#^*ers! Mwa, ha, ha, ha . . .!" This could effect the Eagles salary cap some way. I'm guessing negatively? I started day-dreaming about marrying a playmate with my three milldo and didn't finish the article. Speaking of which, Jeff Garcia is still not an Eagle anymore, and is still scheduled to wed to lovely Carmella sometime this month. -KD
