First, I saw this.
I'm coming home! Guess who's back #HTown https://t.co/3vYnPSD0Ju— Charles James II (@CJDeuce_) October 19, 2015
Intrigued, I did a quick Twitter search and found that yes, "Hard Knocks" aficionados, Charles James II is in fact a member of the Houston Texans again.

Charles James knows the Texans defensive system and is a good special teams player Lonnie Ballentine headed to injured reserve— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) October 19, 2015
Ravens cut Charles James this weekend when they promoted Terrence Magee to active roster now he's coming back to Houston— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) October 19, 2015
While it's truly unfortunate that it took Lonnie Ballentine's gruesome season-ending injury for it to happen, I imagine a majority of Texans fans are happy to see a guy who so many were rooting for during the preseason and who was one of the final cuts when the team finalized its initial 53-man roster on Labor Day Weekend return. From a purely football perspective, it would stand to reason that James will improve the Texans' special teams coverage units; for all the physical shortcomings he may have at cornerback, he did perform well on special teams throughout the preseason, and the Texans are sorely lacking in that department.
