Former Philadelphia Eagles running-back Brian Westbrook says he could still match it with the best running backs in the NFL during an interview at a function with Hank Baskett.
Westbrook was in good spirits as he talked about his love for Philadelphia even in retirement, and he explained that he feels most connected to the Eagles despite spending time with the 49ers.
The speedy back was much more than just an every down inside the tackle back, as he was also adept at catching passes in the back field.
2007 was his most successful year with the Eagles as he broke all kinds of records on his way to over 2,000 scrimmage yards, which includes rushing and receiving production.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, Westbrook revealed.
"I think I can still run about a 4.4 [over 40 yards]. I can still run you know," Westbrook said.
LeSean McCoy ran 4.42 at the NFL Combine, so it's clear Westbrook still thinks he could match the pace of arguably the best running back in the NFL.
"I feel like most connected to Philadelphia. I went to school in Philly and I spent a lot of time with the Eagles. I got the most love in Philly as well," Westbrook added.
"San Francisco was just a brief pit stop for me. Philly is my home.
"As Nick Foles continues to get better, the city will continue to fall in love with him."
