James, 23, is expected to take over as the starting center following a trade last week that sent three-time Pro Bowl center Rodney Hudson and a 2021 seventh-round pick to the Arizona Cardinals for a 2021 third-rounder.

James played 116 offensive snaps in 12 games (one start) in 2019. Last season, he appeared in all 16 games with all 82 of his snaps coming on special teams.
