Default JaMarcus Russell is talking to guess who.

Quote:
Bengals have reached out to former Raiders QB Russell's reps

NFL.com


It started Tuesday with a tweet from wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, who said he'll see JaMarcus Russell in the Cincinnati Bengals' June minicamp. Later, a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora that the Bengals are among the teams that have contacted the quarterback's representatives.

Nothing is imminent, La Canfora reported, but the Bengals, who have J.T. O'Sullivan as their backup to quarterback Carson Palmer, are a potential suitor.

Russell, whom the Oakland Raiders released last week, plans to take his time in picking his next team and is focused on getting himself into shape and weighing his options, the source said. Those close to Russell hope his release serves as a wake-up call for the former No. 1 overall pick, who in 31 career games has thrown 18 touchdowns and 23 interceptions for a 65.2 rating.

Since we're not bringing him in to be a starter, I don't see much of a problem with it. Take a flier on a guy who was talented enough to be the #1 overall pick and see if there's any chance of salvaging his career. Best case scenario: you get a future franchise QB, worst case scenario: you cut the guy after preseason and move on.

With Oakland, does that really count as a #1 overall pick?

Not saying he can't salvage his career but saying he's a #1 pick and taking a chance because of that....hmmm...that's reaching.

Now don't get me wrong, I do believe that players can revamp their lost careers by switching teams, and there is a part of me that Russell could just do that - even in bungal country.

I have lost any remaining respect for Marvin Lewis. I wouldn't ask Russel to throw water on me if I was on fire.

You might as well start moving on now.

He wasn't talented enough to be the #1 overall pick... he was lucky enough to have a good game against ND, and lucky that the Raiders had the #1 overall pick... only Al Davis would waste it on this loser.
