Former Philadelphia Eagles running back Brian Westbrook is officially retiring with the NFC East club. Westbrook owns the Eagles' record with 9,785 career yards from scrimmage.

β€œI will always remember Brian for the electrifying, game-changing plays he made during his great career in Philadelphia,” owner Jeffrey Lurie said in a release. β€œHe was one of those players you knew could score from anywhere on the field and one of the most exciting players I have ever watched. He was a great runner, receiver and returner and was certainly a fan favorite. We are thrilled to have him retire as an Eagle and we look forward to honoring him at Lincoln Financial Field on December 23 against the Redskins in what should be a very exciting atmosphere.”

Westbrook caught 90 passes in a single season, another Eagles record.

Westbrook led the NFL with 2,014 yards from scrimmage eight years ago.
