Aug. 17 (Bloomberg) -- The San Francisco 49ers signed free-agent running back Brian Westbrook, the Philadelphia Eagles’ all-time leader in yards gained from scrimmage.
Westbrook, who signed a one-year contract, will backup Frank Gore, the team said in a statement.
Westbrook, 30, gained 9,785 yards running and catching since being selected by Philadelphia in the 2002 National Football League draft. He missed eight games last season after sustaining two concussions in three weeks.
