Chargers safety Derwin James has been lights out so far in his rookie year. The Chargers are now 6-2 and they are not too far back from the Kansas City Chiefs for first place in the AFC West.
This season so far, Derwin James has notched 55 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and 1 interception through the 8 games the have played. James has been the clear favorite for defensive rookie of the year in his first season.
Today, Derwin James pulled up to Venice beach and saw a mural of himself that read "Got Your Back." If you look at the location of the mural, it might look a little bit familiar.
Shortly after LeBron arrived to the Lakers, artist Jonas Never created a mural at Baby Blues BBQ in Venice Beach that read "The King Of LA" on the wall. Their was a lot of controversy over the summer because fans of Kobe Bryant were upset that LeBron just arrived and is already called the "King Of LA." Once the artist saw all the argument going online, he quickly decided to paint over the mural and nothing has been on the wall until today.
Derwin James has been such a big part of the Los Angeles Chargers and they are looking to make a 2nd half run into the playoffs.
