Cardinals general manager Rod Graves said the team hasn’t made a decision regarding RB Edgerrin James, the Arizona Republic reported.
James has expressed a desire to be released, but Graves told the Republic a decision has yet to be made.
- “We have not made a definitive decision on Edgerrin James,” Graves said. “We did have a conversation during the season where that was an acknowledgement how he felt about him being with us after the season. We said we would sit down and talk about it after the season was over.
- “But there was no commitment with respect to a timeframe or even that we would let him go.”
James did well during the Cardinals’ run to the Super Bowl, starting all four playoff games. However, he was in the doghouse for much of the regular season after starting the first seven games before being benched in favor of rookie Tim Hightower. James was benched despite posting seven 1,000-yard seasons over the course of his 10-year NFL career.
