Bill Cowher Reacts to Derwin James’ Contract Extension

On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Chargers agreed to a 4 year $76.4 million extension with safety Derwin James. In the video above, Bill Cowher evaluates James and the Chargers’ defense.

The Hall of Fame coach addresses the Chargers’ off-season defensive acquisitions of cornerback J.C. Jackson and linebacker Khalil Mack. He also evaluates what James brings to Los Angeles’ defense, highlighting the safety’s versatility when lined up in the box and in coverage.

“We talked about Micah Parsons and what he can do in the front seven. Derwin James is kind of like that on the back end,” said Cowher, who expects the Chargers to have a formidable defense this season, and for Justin Herbert to continue to lead the offense at a high level.
