RB Alexander hoping for another chance

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Shaun Alexander, the former NFL MVP with the Seahawks, still wants to play football.

"I feel before the season is over, I think somebody will go down and they'll say, 'We want somebody who can score some touchdowns and make some things happen,' " Alexander said. "They'll say, 'Let's go get Shaun.' "

Alexander's initial return to the NFL was short-lived. The Washington Redskins signed him last October to fill in for injured backup Ladell Betts. Alexander had only 11 carries in five games.

Alexander, who turns 32 in August, feels like his body has more football left in it.

"I've played nine years but really it feels like I played maybe four because of how the game is played and how coach [Mike] Holmgren and Stump Mitchell used me," Alexander said.

"Even my MVP year, I didn't play in nine quarters because we were beating teams so bad," he said.
