Does Anyone Want Shaun Alexander?
No one is exactly rushing to sign tailback Shaun Alexander, the former league most valuable player released by the Seattle Seahawks more than a month ago.
The New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals have demonstrated interest, but that's about it.
Alexander turns 31 in August, and his best days as a runner may be behind him. He's failed to reach 900 rushing yards in each of the two seasons since his MVP season, and has hasn't averaged more than 3.6 yards per carry in a season over that span. He's been plagued by injuries and continues to carry the reputation that he doesn't grind out the tough yards.
Still, he's not that far removed from being a dynamic, dominating player, and it would be surprising if he remains unsigned when training camps open in July.
