Texans still fired up about ILB James

The Texans would have preferred that LBs coach Reggie Herring never mentioned the club gaining back what it lost “and then some” by replacing former team captain DeMeco Ryans with Bradie James, but that doesn’t mean the club isn’t fired up about its new veteran inside ‘backer. Shortly after signing James, an unrestricted free agent, in early April, PFW heard there was no way James would take the starting job from Darryl Sharpton. Fast-forward two months and it would appear the job is now James’ to lose.
