Before hopping on the float, James told that he intends to wear the Wine and Gold next season, per Joe Vardon.

I love it here. I love being here. I love my teammates. Obviously my agent will take care of all the logistical things but, I’m happy. I’ve got no plans to go nowhere at this point.

This is the happiest time in my life right now.

While this development was heavily expected anyway, nothing beats the kind of assurance created since it came straight from James’ mouth. He, along with thousands of fans in Northeast Ohio, are having the time of their life right now, so, the news was a very pleasant update that came at the best time.
