Saints Still Considering Edgerrin James

After the draft, veteran running back Edgerrin James received his long-awaited release from the Cardinals.
He remains on the market, and the Saints remain potentially interested in him.
We’ve spent some time evaluating Edgerrin,” G.M. Mickey Loomis told Alex Marvez of  “We think he can still play.  We’re going to continue to evaluate that and see where it ends up.  We haven’t made a decision on Edgerrin yet.”
Coincidentally, the Saints had tried to get back into the bottom of round one in order to snatch running back Beanie Wells in the draft.  They couldn’t, and the Cardinals picked Wells, paving the way for James’ release.
