Eddie George has signed on to help broadcast Tennessee's four preseason games.

George is still holding out hope a team will call him, but this is a good sign that he knows the end is near.

The Vikings have been in touch recently with free agent running back Eddie George.

George is awfully close to having to retire. He'd be a reserve in Minnesota, probably a third-stringer.

Coach Jeff Fisher reportedly wants to re-sign Eddie George, but the Titans front office disagrees.

It appears the Titans will explore their options with Travis Henry first. George is not guaranteed to continue his playing career this season.

NFL Network reports the Titans did not return phone calls from Eddie George's agent last week.

The Titans reportedly told George they would have an answer to him by the end of the week. His advisors have told him to move on. Tennessee's foot-dragging may be an indication the team is still trying to bring Travis Henry to Tennessee.

The Jaguars don't consider Eddie George a viable solution to their running back problems.

If the Titans don't want to bring George back, his career could see an abrupt end.

The Titans met with Eddie George this week, but have not made a contract offer.

George will be happy to get a job at this point, especially in Tennessee. With no established backup behind the oft-injured Chris Brown, it would appear to make sense for the Titans as well.

Eddie George may return to the Titans next season.

It sounds like the interest is mutual, and we can't imagine any other team making a strong bid for George. George is an unispiring runner at his age, but at least he'd be a durable backup for fragile Chris Brown.

NFL Network's Adam Shefter reports that Philadelphia may be interesting in signing Eddie George for next season.

It's a solid fit. The Eagles could use a power running back as a backup in case Corell Buckhalter doesn't come all the way back next season.

He's not returning to the Cowboys, but Eddie George wants to continue playing next year.

He should be able to find a backup job. It's possible Tennessee could want him back if George could put his ego aside, like Jerome Bettis this season.

Cowboys declared Eddie George and starting guard Al Singleton inactive for week 15.

George is healthy, it's just a coaches decision. Scott Shanle will start for Singleton.

Eddie George says he plans on playing next year.

It just won't be in Dallas. He could head back to Tennessee if he doesn't mind being the backup.

Eddie George is inactive for week 14.

He's fallen very far, very fast.
Sun, Dec 12, 2004 12:07:00 PM

Coach Bill Parcells admitted Eddie George is now only a part-time player.

George is safe to drop in 12-team leagues.
Tue, Nov 23, 2004 12:38:00 PM

Eddie George "was stunned" after earning only three carries on Sunday.

Stick a fork in him. George is not likely to have any fantasy value the rest of the way. He'll probably have to leave Dallas to accept a secondary role elsewhere next season.
