James finished the 2021 season with 118 tackles (75 solo), five passes defended, three fumbles forced, two sacks and two interceptions across 15 games.

It took essentially two years, but the dynamic safety was finally able to make his presence felt in an emerging Chargers secondary after multiple injuries limited James to just five games played since the end of the 2018 season. The 25-year-old hardly lost a beat in his return as James finished second on the team in tackles and tied for first in interceptions. The star safety enters the offseason on the final year of his rookie contract and figures to receive a lucrative extension in the near future.
