Shaun Alexander Considering Return

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Running back Shaun Alexander is currently out of the NFL but that might change in the next few weeks.

Alexander has said that if the situation is right he would return to the league. "If it’s not the right team, it won’t happen," he said to a local Alabama paper.

Football betting information tells us that only eight players in NFL history have scored 100 or more rushing TD’s in their career and Alexander is one of them.  Football odds information tells us that list is pretty impressive considering Walter Payton, Jim Brown and Emmitt Smith are on it.  Alexander was one of the best running backs in the league from 2001-2005, rushing for more than 1,000 yards in each season as football betting statistics showed.  In 2005 he rushed for 1,880 yards and 27 touchdowns for Seattle.  He did not do nearly as well in 2006 or 2007 though as sports betting numbers show.  Last year he played just four games with Washington and had only 11 carries for 24 yards as football betting statistics tell us.

Alexander is getting ready just in case a deal with an NFL team can be worked out. "I’ve been so blessed with even the hunger to train, the hunger to play still," said Alexander to a local paper.  Alexander said he has been in contact with a couple of teams and it is possible he will get a call.

Alexander was the 19th overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft as football odds information tells us and he had a very productive career.  That career may not be over though. "I think you almost set yourself up for failure if you allow your confidence to be in what you did last year," Alexander said. "I just never did that. People want to make it like it’s ultra-negative but really everybody that has ever played the game, we’ve been on the other side of doubt. I’m just back at it. I don’t mind it."

Alexander is ready for whatever comes his way as online sports betting information shows, whether that is in the NFL or outside of it. "I’m fine knowing that my seasons in Seattle are over and this new season is starting," Alexander said.

Football betting information tells us that if Alexander signs with a team it is likely it would come after training camps begin since his cost to a team would be less once camps are underway.
