The Cards released Edgerrin James today; along with CB Rod Hood and DE Travis LaBoy. You can read all the dirt here.
I don’t think Edge will retire yet. He is only 30 (same age as San Diego’s LaDainian Tomlinson) but with Arizona’s tremendous passing game and the addition of powerhouse Tim Hightower, James didn’t really have an identity with the team. There are plenty of teams out there who desperately need veteran RBs and I believe he’ll find a fit somewhere. Same with Hood and LaBoy.
My biggest concern at the moment is the LB position. Arizona needed to draft one (or two); however, they will either have to stick with Karlos Dansby et al. and see how they do or acquire some in a trade situation.
