ESPN: Drew Rosenhaus, agent for Cardinals RB Edgerrin James,
confirmed news reports that his client has asked to be released,
but the request was rejected. "We spoke with [GM] Rod Graves
because Edgerrin still believes he is a 1,000-yard back and he is
healthy and he is still capable of being a 1,000-yard back for a
team," Rosenhaus said. "He is not playing now, and there are teams
that are banged up at the RB position that he could help. We
didn't get the answer we were hoping for." Graves said on
Wednesday evening that Rosenhaus asked if the team would consider
releasing James "and we declined it as a consideration." "I
explained to him that we still saw Edgerrin as a valuable member
of our football team," Graves said. Rosenhaus said the request to
be released was made last week and that he will continue to speak
with Cardinals management. James has lost his starting job to
rookie Tim Hightower. Over the past 3 games, James has had only
three carries for 5 yards.
