Ja'Wuan James lands contract with new team after suffering season-ending injury this offseason
It’s been a rough offseason for Ja’Wuan James but at least he’s found a team willing to take a risk on his future in the NFL.
If you missed the news this offseason, the offensive lineman suffered a season-ending injury while training for the upcoming season away from the Broncos facility.
Had he suffered the injury while working out within Denver’s facility, he would have been paid his salary and the guaranteed money the Broncos were scheduled to pay him for the upcoming season.
Instead, because the injury occurred elsewhere, James is out of all that money and he was released by the team. James has filed a grievance following Denver’s decision to release him this offseason.
Now James has found a team willing to take a chance on him as ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reports that the Ravens have acquired the lineman this offseason.
The deal is worth up to $9 million, with $500,000 in guaranteed money for 2021.
James opted out of the 2020 season, meaning if he makes the roster in Baltimore for 2022, he will be two years removed from playing in an NFL game.
