Ja'Wuan James has filed a $15 million grievance against the Denver Broncos and has also agreed to sign a contract with the Baltimore Ravens. 

James had been guaranteed $10 million for the 2021 season, but because the injury took place off-site, it was designated as a non-football injury, meaning the Broncos were not obligated to pay his salary. The team later released him.

James is seeking his $10 million salary for the 2021 season and $5 million salary for the 2022 season, arguing that he was working out away from the facility under guidance from the Broncos.
