    Donovan McNabb is still giving back to the city of Brotherly Love and its surrounding communities, even though the city probably won't give much love back now that he's with the Redskins.

    McNabb and several other Eagles and Redskins -- including Brian Westbrook and Clinton Portis -- were in Marlton, N.J., on Saturday for the QB's annual camp, which benefits the McNabb Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

    While McNabb was all smiles (and decked out in capris) while helping out the kids, there was much talk among the adults on hand about Westbrook's future.

    The former Eagles back has been offered a contract by the Redskins, but he knows it's a crowded backfield in Washington with Portis, Larry Johnson and Willie Parker.

    "They have a lot of guys already there," Westbrook said. "I think when I talked to them the role they wanted me to play was more of a third-down role. I think that's something I definitely can fill. Just right now it's a matter of a number that we can agree upon that would make sense for both of us."

    Westbrook said more than three teams are interested in bringing him on board for next season and he hopes to make a decision soon, according to NBCWashington's Dan Hellie.

    Westbrook said the Redskins offer weighs a little more because of McNabb and the fact that the Skins are his hometown team.

    "Definitely," he said. "I think they have a great team -- a team that can win some football games. But it has to make sense for both of us. Hopefully we can get the thing done."

    Translation: He would like a little more money than the Redskins are offering.
