According to, the Seattle Seahawks have signed free agent running back Edgerrin James to a one-year contract.

This might come as a little bit of a surprise, given how well Justin Forsett has been this preseason.

This certainly means the end for fourth-string running back Devin Moore, an undrafted rookie out of Wyoming.

Also, the Seahawks had been shopping around for an offensive tackle and will most likely add one in the coming days.

Last season, James was with division rival Arizona Cardinals, but because the Cardinals drafted rookie running back Chris Wells, James no longer fit in Arizona.

James is a great addition to the Seahawks backfield, bringing experience and talent to a not so well known running back corps.

The contract is for one-year and priced at $2 million according to sources
