Yes indeed. Hopefully he's found a home in Jax.

One more year and he will get his pension. Same with Cam Meredith.

I believe Nate Palmer and Shelby Harris have their pension. great for all of them.

Late in the game, he had his only catch for maybe 5 yards.

Unfortunately NFL pensions are very screwy, so I'm not sure how the "credited season" works. Hopefully they all have them; however, partial seasons like some of these guys had based on injuries or partial seasons could hurt. I hope each and every one of these guys continues to play for a long while.

What could really benefit these guys is getting their Player annuities and investing money into their Second Career Savings Plans. After four years, each of these guys could have accounts well more than $300k based on the 2-1 NFL match and investment returns.

Out of all these guys, Cam is the most likely one to sign a good-sized multi-million guarantee contract. He's also lucky he was not drafted, so he can get to a FA contract quicker.

James is great young man and great athlete. Hard to find truly athletic 6'4" 245 lb TEs who can catch, block, run and hit like he can. Plus he plays his heart out and is very coachable. Whether he breaks thru as pass catching TE or not .. teams love guys like him. He has many years left in him .. just hope he stays healthy.
