James currently plays
running back for the Arizona Cardinals
James signed a four-year, $30 million deal with the Cardinals on March 12, 2006. He is considered the Cardinals' most significant addition during the 2006 offseason and one of the Cardinals' most significant personnel acquisitions ever. However, as of week six of the 2006 season, James had generally not lived up to the large expectations for him. His best game came against the St. Louis Rams in which he rushed for 94 yards and one touchdown. He is also averaging a paltry 2.7 yards a rush.
With the Cardinals, James is filling the shoes of former running back Emmitt Smith, who played for the Cardinals for a short time at the end of his career, a likely Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee.
