Bucs Q&A: Are Mike, Edgerrin James related?

Have questions about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Send them along to Tribune beat writers Roy Cummings and Ira Kaufman.


Q. Is running back Mike James related to Edgerrin James?

- Paul Blalock, Jacksonville

A. Did some research on this and found out that a Florida State recruit named Derwin James is somehow related to both Bucs sixth-round pick Mike James and former Colts star Edgerrin James, so there appears to be some commonality there.  Not exactly sure how close a relative they are, but we’ll find out when we get a chance to talk to Mike at the Bucs' rookie minicamp. Of course, both also played for the Miami Hurricanes.
