The Kansas City Chiefs have signed wide receiver Richie James, formerly of the New York Giants, according to reports. The 25-year-old receiver has agreed to terms with the Chiefs, adding depth to their already impressive offensive lineup.
James was drafted in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. He played with the 49ers for three seasons before being released earlier this year. He then signed with the Giants, but was released by the team just a few weeks ago.
The Chiefs have been looking to add more talent to their receiving corps, and James could be a solid addition to their roster. With his speed and quickness, James has the potential to be a valuable asset for the Chiefs’ offense.
In his career, James has caught 38 passes for 578 yards and three touchdowns. He has also returned 44 kickoffs for 1,052 yards and one touchdown. Although he hasn’t had a breakout season yet, James has shown flashes of potential and could thrive in the right system.
The signing of James comes as the Chiefs look to build on their success from last season. With quarterback Patrick Mahomes leading the way, the Chiefs are hoping to make another deep playoff run and compete for a Super Bowl title. Adding more weapons to their offense will only strengthen their chances of achieving that goal.
It remains to be seen how James will fit into the Chiefs’ offense, but his signing is a step in the right direction for the team. If he can showcase his talents and make an impact on the field, he could become a key contributor for the Chiefs in the upcoming season.
