JaMarcus Russell has been working towards attempting an NFL comeback, and it looks like he may get an opportunity to show teams what he can do. According to CBS Sports’ Mike Freeman, a “number of teams” have been following Russell’s comeback “closely.” Here’s what an NFL scout reportedly told Freeman: “I’ve been following his comeback story pretty closely. I think a lot of teams are. Good chance he gets a second shot.” Freeman says the reason some teams are interested is because there are not enough good quarterbacks out there. If Russell gets in shape and shows a new dedication to the game, some may feel he is worthy of a roster spot. We initially laughed off Russell’s desire to make a comeback when we read he was weighing 308 pounds in January. He apparently has cut down about 30 pounds and is getting in decent shape. Russell has not played since the 2009 NFL season. Even if he dedicates himself to being a hard worker and good citizen, I just don’t see him offering enough upside for a team to sign him. Let me just ask you one question: how would you feel if Russell played in a game for your team? If you’re cringing at the thought, then you know the answer.
