Bradie James To Retire As Cowboy

Veteran linebacker Bradie James will announce his retirement today as a member of the Dallas Cowboys, reports Joe Trahan of WFAA Sports. Presumably, like Marcus Trufant did with the Seahawks earlier this offseason, James will sign a one-day contract with the Cowboys to make it official.

James, a fourth-round pick in 2003, spent nine seasons with the Cowboys before joining the Texans for 2012. His best stretch came from 2008 to 2010, when he averaged about 115 tackles per season as a full-time starter in Dallas. The 33-year-old also set a career high in ’08 with eight sacks.
