More for James

Edgerrin James appears headed for an expanded role in the offense this season.

The league's two-time rushing champion occasionally has found himself flanked out as a receiver during camp. It's similar to the way the team utilized Marshall Faulk prior to his trade to St. Louis before the 1999 season.

"That is one thing I have always wanted to do," James said after Monday morning's practice. "The way I see my career in later years is more of a receiver-type back because then I can run routes.

"I am trying to learn from Marvin (Harrison) so I could be a receiver. I know that in time running backs get a lot of wear and tear."

James has been heavily involved in the passing game during his first four seasons, collecting 210 receptions in 52 games. The majority, though, have come from him slipping out of the backfield.

Me too. The second year back from injury is typically a big one. And that offense is ready to explode.

I plan on grabbing him with the 10th overall pick in my draft, which works out to pick 2.02. I think it'll be a steal when all is said and done.

That would be tough to do, but if it's what your plan and your gut says to do - you gotta do what's right for you! ;-D

He's primed for a big year, but still risky. Draft at your own risk.

That's the way I feel about it. I also wonder if they will give him the ball on the goalline.
