JaMarcus Russell Attempting NFL Comeback

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Kristian Dyer, JaMarcus Russell is planning to attempt an NFL comeback. The former Oakland Raiders quarterback reportedly plans to work out with TEST Football Academy the next few months in hopes of getting another shot in the NFL. Russell is down to 308 from 320 pounds thanks to some cardiovascular training. He’s hoping to lose even more weight as he attempts a comeback (he was listed at 265 pounds when he played.) Russell told Yahoo! Sports...
quote:

“My first year out, I couldn’t watch football but after a while, I couldn’t keep the TV off. I got that itchy feeling but now I gotta watch it, gotta watch,”

“The last few years, the things going through my life, football is my job and it is how it feeds my family. People would say [that] I didn’t love the game but that pisses me off. People don’t know the real you but I want people to know the real me and see what I can do. People are always saying that I’m a bust. I want to show them I’m not. I’m committed to this now.”

“I’m not looking for a pat on the shoulder from people who haven’t been there for me,” Russell said. “It feels funny not to go through a training camp, that’s just what I’m used to. It’s going to feel good to go back out there again. I will make this happen.”

He was decent with LSU. In the NFL he was an embarrassment to the SEC & himself. He did not study and prepare. He was lazy, rich and a definite POS. He really hurt the Raiders with his refusal to self-sacrifice and perform as he was able. They invested a fortune and, in reality, he stole it. He could drop 100l bs & be garbage

Guy does have a cannon of an arm. He'll get a chance for a tryout SOMEWHERE in the league.

He was a great college quarterback and still has all the tools needed physically. The mental game is going to keep this from happening.
