Former Cardinals Back James Still Looking for Work

Looks like the Cardinals must have been on to something when they dumped RB Edgerrin James earlier this offseason. James is STILL looking for a place to play in 09, and as the News-Press in Fort Myers reports, he still seems to think he has a place in the NFL:

Edgerrin James, unsigned and hoping to enter his 11th NFL season as a running back, projects a carefree attitude regarding his future. “There are not 32 backs out there who are better than me,” James said with a smile. Most NFL training camps will begin Aug. 1. “I want to continue to play. I can play at a high level. “I’m not saying where I want to go. It will all take care of itself.”

As for his destination, James said he was not in a rush to decide. The death of his longtime girlfriend, Andia Wilson, has factored into his decision to remain a free agent. Wilson died April 14 after a battle with leukemia. “I had to make sure that part was taken care of first,” James said of his family, which includes four children: Edquisha, Eyahna, Edgerrin Jr. and Euro. “Now I’m getting into football more.”
