Edgerrin James RB Ex-Indianapolis Colts
Edgerrin James was a stud, unfortunately he ducked out of Indianapolis for a huge contract right before they decided to make it to the Super Bowl and beat the Chicago Bears. James, though, got a ring from the team but you got to wonder if he even thought he deserved it. He got his shot again, last year, making it to the ship with the Arizona Cardinals, but they were beat by the Pittsburgh Steelers. He requested out and got it, and went to the Seattle Seahawks, but was subsequently cut by them as well. We're just going to forget about the last two teams and focus on how fucking awesome he was in Indy. He won Offensive Rookie of the Year in 1999 and went to 4 Pro Bowls, earning 3 All-Pro considerations. At 12, 246 career rushing yards, he stands #10 all time, and is 33 yards away from #9 Marshall Faulk. Thats some serious NFL hall of fame consideration there, and you have to wonder where he'd be if he had stayed in Indianapolis.
