    Seahawks cut ties with all-time leading rusher Alexander

    Two seasons after being the NFL's MVP, Shaun Alexander is looking for work. The Seattle Seahawks released the franchise's all-time leading rusher on Tuesday, reports NFL Network's Adam Schefter.

    There has been talk of the Seahawks cutting ties with Alexander since the team signed running backs Julius Jones and T.J. Duckett in free agency last month.

    After Alexander set a then-NFL record with 28 touchdowns and a franchise record of 1,880 yards rushing, he signed a $62 million, eight-year contract before the 2006 season.

    Alexander, 30, was scheduled to earn $4,475,000 in 2008.

    Alexander has had two injury-filled and ineffective seasons since signing his deal, including last season in which he ran for just 716 yards in 13 games. That was his lowest total since he replaced Ricky Watters as Seattle's lead back in 2001.

    Jones signed a four-year deal worth up ot $16 million, while Duckett got a five-year deal. The team also has Maurice Morris, who rushed for 628 yards last year, back.

    He may be one of the most overrated runningbacks ever.

    Like Koop said, its amazing how fast a player can go from the top to rock bottom.

    So who will sign him now? He will find work before the start of the '08 season. Question is where?
