Yesterday, LaMichael James asked the San Francisco 49ers to release him. The Niners granted his release and today, he passed through waivers unclaimed.
@caplannfl: Former #49ers RB LaMichael James passed through waivers unclaimed.
That means one of two things, either the teams called the Niners and the Niners said the kid is a headcase, or the agent and the client told teams to not claim him. I have never heard the second one ever happen, which likely means, teams believe James is a headcase.
I honestly do not feel he is that good of a back anyway. There are some running back needy teams, so I am sure someone will give him a chance, but it will have to wait at least another day.
