Edgerrin James will “always be a Colt”. In week three of this upcoming season, the former University of Miami running back will be enshrined in Colt history forever.
The Colts announced today that James, the fourth overall pick in the 1999 NFL draft, will join the Ring of Honor at a celebration at the Week 3 game against the Jaguars on September 23.
“It is a tremendous honor,” James said in a statement released by the team. “It’s one of those things that you set out to do and hope to have a career where you can leave a lasting imprint. For me, it’s super important because a lot of my young kids didn’t get a chance to see me play. Now, at least they’ll know their daddy could play a little bit. . . . No matter where I go or what I do, I’m always a Colt.”
Congrats to him. Someone who has always conducted himself with professionalism on and off the field.
