ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -The Washington Redskins signed Brian Westbrook's brother on Tuesday, along with seven other players who attended the team's recent rookie camp.
Byron Westbrook, a defensive back from Division III Salisbury, is the latest Redskins acquisition with family ties to the NFL. Last month, the team drafted Carson Palmer's brother (Jordan Palmer), Dawan Landry's brother (LaRon Landry) and the son of former NFL player Bennie Blades (H.B. Blades).
Brian Westbrook, the Philadelphia Eagles running back, and his younger brother attended DeMatha High School in the Washington area.
The Redskins also signed defensive end Alex Buzbee, tight end Brian Bell, linebacker Kevin Jones, fullback Pete Schmitt, receiver Carl Berman, defensive back Brandon Register and guard Cornelius Rogers.
To make room for the new players, the team released tight end Zach Hilton, defensive tackle Vaka Manupuna, receivers Adrian Madise and Deyon Williams and defensive backs Daniel Francis and Jerrell Pippens.
Fullback Nehemiah Broughton, who tore an ACL last week during a spring practice, was placed on injured reserve.
