The Buffalo Bills announced Tuesday afternoon that they have claimed cornerback Charles James off of waivers. James has been in the league since 2013 after playing four years at FCS school Charleston Southern.
After graduating Charles Southern in 2013 as the school record holder in interceptions and a three-time All Big South selection, James signed as an undrafted free agent with the New York Giants. Since then he has bounced around between the Houston Texans, Baltimore Ravens, and Indianapolis Colts. He’s appeared in 34 games over his career, with just a single start.
The Houston Texans 2015 training camp may be from where most football fans know him. That offseason the Texans were the subject of HBO’s Hard Knocks, and James was a star. He became known for his unique sock selection and his move from cornerback to running back.
Charles James joins a Bills roster now crowded with cornerbacks—he is the ninth corner on the roster—and will have to fight for his spot on the team. The training camp battle in the defensive backfield will be interesting one to watch.
