Report: Edge asked Cardinals to release him

Edgerrin James asked the Cardinals to release him after he was benched in favor of Tim Hightower in Week 9, according to
Arizona refused, opting to keep Edge as a third stringer for insurance behind Hightower and J.J. Arrington. James' $5M salary for 2008 is guaranteed, so there was no reason for Arizona to give him to another team. At the time Joseph Addai was struggling in Indianapolis and the Colts could have given their old friend a long look. Denver also could've put in a waiver claim.
