The Seattle Seahawks released former most valuable player Shaun Alexander, only 26 months after he signed a $62-million contract as the franchise's cornerstone. Seahawks President Tim Ruskell said Tuesday that the team released Alexander unconditionally hours after the running back passed a physical. It has been a rapid fall for the 30-year-old. When he signed that deal, he was coming off an MVP season in 2005 and a Super Bowl appearance.

NFL most valuable player Shaun Alexander has agreed to a $62-million, eight-year contract to remain with the Seattle Seahawks, his agent said Sunday night. Jim Steiner said the deal is the richest for any NFL running back and will pay the league's leading rusher more than $15.1 million in guaranteed cash, through signing and other bonuses and 2006 base salary. The league still must approve the contract, and Alexander has yet to sign it.

Shaun Alexander said his offensive line was more excited about a chance at the league rushing title than he was. The NFL touchdown record was another matter. "It's more fulfilling to be 13-3, to know we're in the playoffs and we don't have to play next week," Alexander said. "Those are more fulfilling than the rushing title. The scoring title, the touchdowns, I do like that. That's pretty cool." Alexander set both marks on Sunday in the Seattle Seahawks' 23-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Running back Shaun Alexander will not play Sunday in Seattle's NFC West showdown at St. Louis despite recent tests that show the crack in his foot has diminished, the team said. Alexander was injured Sept. 24 against the New York Giants. Seattle receiver Bobby Engram is questionable for Sunday because of an undetermined illness that has left him listless and resting at home. It means Deion Branch probably will make his first start as a Seahawk.

Running back Shaun Alexander will not play for the Seattle Seahawks until he's healthy enough to practice full time.

Back in the early 1970s, about five years before homegrown NFL star Shaun Alexander was born, this town was in a pickle over its water tower. As part of a deal to build a shopping complex along Interstate 75, developers donated a quarter-acre to the city, which was allowed to construct a million-gallon water tower on the plot with just one stipulation: The tower had to be adorned with "Florence Mall" in giant block letters.
