Running Back

RB | Chris Johnson | Tennessee Titans | Fantasy

RB | Edgerrin James | Free Agent | Free Agency News

Although Rosenhaus did not reveal the team, he did say that James wants to sign with a team who will provide him with significant playing time. "We will be selective. We want to make sure for Edge that he goes to a good situation. He would like an opportunity to have a significant role and a great opportunity for playing time," Rosenhaus said. "We may wait until right before camp and see what teams have the greatest need. We may wait until during or after camps when teams are dealing with injuries."

Stephen Hawkins, of The Associated Press, reports San Diego Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson said he believes he can still be productive even though he recently turned 30 years old.

There are some guys out there that defy the odds, and I'm eager to prove that," Tomlinson said.
