Kevin Demoff, the Rams' vice president of football operations, said before Saturday night's preseason opener against the Minnesota Vikings that he hadn't spoken to Westbrook's agent for several days. Demoff told The Associated Press there was nothing to a published report that Westbrook would sign with St. Louis on Monday, although he remained optimistic the Rams remained in the running.
NFL.com's Steve Wyche reports that a source with knowledge of Westbrook's thinking said the eight-year veteran is still weighing his options, but the Rams are a possibility.
A source said earlier this summer that Westbrook also had drawn interest from teams that didn't want their pursuit of the running back made public.
The Eagles opted not to retain their longtime starter as they transitioned to LeSean McCoy, who performed well as a rookie in 2009. Westbrook had spent his entire NFL career in Philadelphia, rushing for 5,995 yards and making two Pro Bowls while struggling with injuries.
