FLOWERY BRANCH — Linebacker Robert James, who was drafted in the fifth round of the 2008 draft out of Arizona State, is getting a close look at minicamp.
He’ll get a chance to show that he’s a speedy linebacker, who can possibly play in passing situations.
“I think both him and Spencer Adkins are guys that are fighting right now and have been around,” defensive assistant Mark Collins said. “They understand the system. They understand their roles. It should be good competition in the fall.”
