Dolphins place RT Ja'Wuan James on IR

Recommended Posts

Just so disappointing as the O-Line continues to be the weakest link on this team and it just gets worse as the season goes.

He's a FA at the end of the season. A markdown on damaged goods?

Didn't we pick up his 5th year option? Or does this injury allow us to void it somehow?

He is listed as a FA, but I forgot about the option year for being a 1st rounder.

The option has already been exercised. James is under contract in 2018 for $9.3m, none of it is guaranteed.

This gives Jesse Davis a chance to steal the job away from James. James has had a very up and down career. For as big as he is, he hasn't been able to handle a bull rush. He gets driven back into the RB/QB routinely. After this much time in a NFL strength program, he is either lazy, or just physically unable to get strong enough. Davis has been praised by the coaching staff. He has shown enough to replace Sam Young, who is the swing tackle. Lets see what Davis has to offer.
