According to agent Drew Rosenhaus, the Seattle Seahawks have signed a one-year contract with the league’s leading active rusher Edgerrin James.
The news has not been officially confirmed by the Seahawks yet, but veteran running back T.J. Duckett told reporters Tuesday night that he was already waived by the Seahawks to clear roster space. The news came from a message Rosenhaus posted on his Twitter page saying “It’s official! Congrats to Edgerrin James on signing a 1 year deal with the Seahawks.”
James, who formerly played for the Arizona Cardinals, is the 11th best running back in the NFL with 12,121 yards. He actually did not take part in practices with the Seahawks in Tuesday morning, but Rosenhaus was seen inside the Seahawks headquarters Tuesday afternoon.
