Seattle Dumps Former Rushing Champ Edgerrin James

The Edgerrin James era in Seattle is officially over. The Hawks today cut James, releasing him after he never made any type of impact on a team that really could have used a boost in the run game. The 31-year-old was inked by the Hawks late in August.

James wasn’t the only one that was shown the door today, as the team also released safety C.J. Wallace and cornerback Travis Fisher. Seattle signed receiver Mike Hass, safety Jamar Adams and cornerback Roy Lewis from the practice squad to fill the open roster spots

James was brought in as the team turned to him to help the run game, but he never crossed the end zone, and ran a total of 46 times for 125 yards. He put up 2.7 yards per carry. James had a season-high 16 carries for 46 yards in Seattleā€™s 41-0 win over Jacksonville, but James got double-digit carries in only one other game. Three times he was held to less than 10 yards rushing.
