OL - FA - OUT
Week 3 Outlook
Former Denver Broncos OT Ja'Wuan James has reportedly signed a two-year deal worth up to nine million dollars with the Baltimore Ravens, per Adam Schefter.
James managed to sign a two-year, $9 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, despite having ruptured his Achilles last spring, leading to an ongoing legal situation with the Broncos. The Ravens land a solid veteran tackle with the James signing, building depth along their offensive line along with Alejandro Villanueva and Ronnie Stanley returning to left tackle from injury. James still has to pass his team physical, which excludes the Achilles injury he suffered a year ago. The seventh-year tackle is expected to pass with no issues and will have the opportunity to compete for the Ravens' 53-man roster as OTAs lead into training camp in the coming weeks.
Per source, Broncos starting RT Ja’Wuan James is opting out of the 2020 NFL season due to concerns amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
Big loss for the Broncos as they lose their starting RT for the season. James signed a four-year, $51M contract with Denver last offseason. They’ll now need to find a replacement for James to help protect their biggest potential investment in QB Drew Lock.
