After a individual workout with the Cleveland Browns organization on Thursday afternoon, According to ESPN Cleveland reporter Brad Stainbrook, The Browns and TE Jesse James were reportedly “working towards a deal.” Now it’s official for a single season!
Since coming out of Penn State University, eventually being drafted in the 2015 NFL draft in the 5th round, James has played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, and now with his new franchise, the Cleveland Browns.
Jesse James has played in over 100 NFL games, making 157 receptions, gained 1,522 receiving yards, and scored 12 receiving touchdowns during his eight years in the National Football League.
He will be the Cleveland Browns 3rd tight end on the depth chart, behind Harrison Bryant and Browns star tight end David Njoku.
The plan for the Cleveland Browns is to make use of Jesse James’ enormous 6’7 height, and weighs 250 pounds. With that kind of ability, James will provide a ton of help to the offense as an automatic redzone threat for blocking and passing plays.
