Edgerrin James went through his first practice with the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old running back, who was released by Arizona earlier this year, did not participate in more than a handful of drills.

He mostly stood on the sideline and watched his new team.

The Seahawks, who released running back T.J. Duckett to make room for James, signed him to complement starting running back Julius Jones.

James says he's not in Seattle to compete with Jones but to work with him.

James is the league's active leading rusher.
