James posted a photo on Instagram with the caption: "Wanna thank the New York Giants for giving me the opportunity to start my career in the National Football League. Things happen in life for a reason I can leave this place with a smile because I know I gave it everything I had everyday. Shocked? Hell yes! But I guess that's how the business goes.
Gonna miss my guys DRC, Vic Cruz, Prince and a lot more we had some good times but the one person I'll miss the most is my big brother Antrel @antrelrolle you showed me a lot taught me a lot and I looked up to you thanks for everything. I'd be lying if I say this didn't motivate me haha looks like the Charles James underdog story continues! GOD is good man! #ManOfFaith #TheJourneyFollow"
