The team also announced Tuesday that it released cornerback Rod Hood and defensive end Travis LaBoy.
James had 794 carries for 2,895 yards and 16 touchdowns in his three seasons in Arizona. His resurgence during last season's playoffs gave Arizona the running game it needed.
James was benched for seven games during the season but came back to have a solid performance in the playoffs. He said late in the season that he expected the Cardinals to release him by mutual agreement.
