There is a new tight end in Cleveland after the Browns signed veteran free agent Jesse James.

The 28-year-old James inked a one-year deal to join the Browns tight end party,

one that has seen quite a bit of transactional action in the last few months.

James comes to Cleveland after spending the 2021 season on the Chicago Bears.

The Browns are his fourth NFL stop, following stints in Pittsburgh and Detroit as well.

I had the fortune to cover James in his two seasons (2019-2020) with the Lions,

as well as watching several of his Bears and Steelers games over the years. 

James was a fifth-round pick by the Steelers in the 2015 NFL draft out of Penn State.

At 6-foot-7 and 261 pounds, he’s a big target with some natural power and base strength to his game.
