He largely has been ignored and overlooked by the NFL lately, and it appears that defensive end Erasmus James won’t be back in the NFL again, ever.
A league source tells us that James, a member of the abysmal first-round class of 2005, has been indefinitely suspended by the NFL.
Speculation in league circles focuses on the possibility that James violated the substance abuse policy.
Or maybe he punched LeGarrette Blount.
James actually got off to a decent start as a rookie, appearing in 15 games and notching four sacks. But he suffered a torn ACL in the second game of the 2006 season, and he never was the same thereafter.
After the 2007 campaign, James was shipped to the Redskins, who cut him after he appeared in only five games.
Via our friends at Rotoworld.com, James last surfaced on December 17, 2008, when he worked out for the Patriots.
