Curt Sylvester of the Free Press reports Detroit Lions CB Bryant Westbrook continues his rehab from his ruptured Achilles' injury.

Team President Matt Millen would prefer a veteran QB who knows the team's offensive scheme and is willing to be a teacher to QB Charlie Batch.

The AP reports that after visiting with the Chargers earlier in the week QB Warren Moon did confirm he would not mind playing for the Steelers and their offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride who is his old head coach. The Steelers however cannot offer Moon the two main things he is seeking - money and a starting QB job. The Steelers have said they are sticking with QB Kordell Stewart as their starter but they may want to replace Mike Tomczak as their backup. The Steelers may also want to talk with QB Jeff Hostetler who was just released by the Redskins. The Bucs, in addition to the Browns (already reported earlier) may be a team that would like to talk to Moon. Again, he'd only be a backup to Trent Dilfer.
