Much ado about nothing, as the Seahawks waived theoretical "goal line back" Edgerrin James today.

I can't help but notice that the actual Tweet says that the Seahawks "terminated" him, which sounds considerably more sinister.
Looks like Danny has noticed that, and clarified what he meant in more recent tweets.
Wow. I guess that they were worried someone else would pick him up. When's the funeral?
Westbrook to the Seahawks next year, I'm calling it.
no no no no no!!!!! a thousand times No!
Sorry for double post
Seems to me like you still have 198 to go.
He's still under contract next year...
In Indy, he always was good at picking up the blitz. Seattle should have tried him on the offensive line. It couldn't have been any worse than what they've got.
The excellent Field Gulls blog commented on James' release "He blocked like a center and ran like a guard."
Edge finished the year eerily similar to another aging Seattle stringer, Franco Harris in 1984. Both played half a season, collected less than 200 yards, and averaged ~2.5 yards per carry. At least the 1984 version could absorb a middling player with its strong supporting cast. No luxury for that this year. :-/
James good at one time. Now old.
