2019 Free Agent Profile: Jesse James


Jesse James is a jack-of-all-trades tight end. He excels in run blocking and is effective at receiving and even dropping back to pass block. He's spent all four of his NFL seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers after being their fifth-round election in 2015.

James' massive 6-foot-7, 261-pound frame helps him out a lot in the blocking department. He's also super quick and agile for his frame which helps him out when blocking faster defenders. James isn't just a blocking tight end, as he's shown flashes in the receiving department. In 2018, James caught 30 passes for 423 yards and two touchdowns.
