Edgerrin Tyree James (pronounced /ˈɛdʒərɪn ˈdʒeɪmz/) (born August 1, 1978 in Immokalee, Florida) is an American football running back who is currently a free agent in the NFL.
James was recruited out of Florida's Immokalee High School by the University of Miami. He proved to be one of the most successful running backs in the school's history.
James ranks second in all-time University of Miami rushing yards. He was the only running back in the university's history to post two consecutive seasons with 1000-plus rushing yards, and he ranks first in school history with the most 100-plus rushing games (14). All single season records held by James have since been broken by current Baltimore Ravens running back Willis McGahee.
