James was with Miami for five seasons to start his career, making 62 starts over that span. He was ranked the 34th best tackle in the NFL by Pro Football Focus.
The Broncos will be happy to slot James in the lineup, as they haven’t had a great offensive line since Peyton Manning was playing. James will be tasked with keeping Joe Flacco upright to help move the ball downfield. Garrett Bolles will likely stay at left tackle, while James locks down the right tackle spot.
Kareem Jackson, a versatile defensive back, was also able to reach an agreement with the team. His deal is for three years and $33 million with $23 million guaranteed. He figures to help out across from Chris Harris Jr. at cornerback.
