MDS noted yesterday that it’s odd Eagles coach Andy Reid and Brian Westbrook speak on a weekly basis and wondered if the 49ers could potentially pursue tampering charges.

Asked about the situation by Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, the 49ers issued a “no comment.”

Barrows thinks it’s unlikely the 49ers would pursue such charges, largely because they don’t seem to have much interest in keeping Westbrook next year.

As MDS noted, there’s also little reason to think the Eagles would be interested in signing Westbrook anyway.
