Jesse James, TE

The Denver Broncos tight end room with Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam oozes with athleticism.  Jesse James would fit in nicely as a high-quality blocking TE3.

James is a behemoth at 6’7″, 250 pounds, and was recently released by the Detroit Lions, mainly because of his rather hefty contract.

Blocking tight ends are always in demand in the NFL and James provides that and some upside as a pass-catcher, with his best season coming in 2018 with the Steelers, where he caught 30 balls for 423 yards and two scores.

James wouldn’t be a flashy signing but gives the Broncos more blocking power.
