Drisan Bryant James (born October 6, 1984 in Phoenix, Arizona) is a professional American and Canadian football wide receiver in the Canadian Football League. He was signed by the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent in 2007. He played college football for the Boise State Broncos.

James has also been a member of the Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles.

College careerEdit

James played college football at Boise State. During his college career he achieved a total of 115 receptions for 1810 yards. He also rushed 14 times for a gain of 124 yards.[1] Led the team in receiving yards per game (46.2) and yards per catch (16.8) during the 2006 season.[2]

James is best known for his performance in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, where he caught two touchdown passes against the University of Oklahoma and helped lead Boise State to a 43-42 victory in overtime. Most spectacularly, on a fourth down play with eighteen seconds left in regulation, James caught an eighteen-yard pass and made a brilliant lateral to teammate Jerard Rabb running the opposite way, resulting in a game-tying touchdown with seven seconds left. The play required James to "sell" to the defense the notion that he was going to keep the ball and try for a first down, and also to lateral the ball at the last instant yet lead his teammate in full stride. A close look at the replay shows that had the lateral not been timed and delivered perfectly, the receiver would likely not have made it to the end zone for the tying score.
