James Almost Quit the Cardinals This Season

From: Arizona Republic

It’s a good thing the Cardinals coaching staff threw a few bones to Edgerrin James after he was benched in favor of rookie Tim Hightower, because the veteran running back revealed that he would have quit on the team and walked away. “It was a different world, but you’ve got to take the good with the bad,” he said after practice on Tuesday. “Throughout my career, everything’s been easy and finally you get some adversity. Did I deserve that adversity? No, I’ll never agree with that. “But this is where I’m at and when you sign up to play in the NFL, you’ve got to take the good with the bad. If it got to the point where I couldn’t play, I would have just went home, I would have said ‘(expletive) it, I ain’t going to play then.’ But, it never got to that point.”
