THE TOUGHEST agent in the business has nothing on a good old-fashioned clerical error. Consider that the Eagles paid their star running back Brian Westbrook a $3 million roster bonus he was due. Then they paid him again. Until Westbrook, who signed a five-year, $24.9 million deal in 2005. gives back the extra cash—and he says he will once he figures out exactly how much he owes, since the money was taxed—the team runs the risk taking a salary-cap hit. To avoid that, Philly filed a grievance with the NFL.
