Jamarcus
If you are, you shouldn’t be. This is the same franchise that trotted out at quarterback the two players voted to be the most overrated players in the league by their peers. So why not bring in a 308 pound draft bust looking to make a comeback? Nevermind that new general manager John Idzik says he’s “comfortable” with comfortable with Mark being a Jet. A bigger indication that despite all the changes, the Jets are still the Jets is what was bandied about regarding the quarterback situation before Idzik took the job. More recently, after Tannenbaum was let go, members of the organization had some very exploratory, informal discussions regarding former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell, the 2007 No. 1 overall pick who flamed out of the NFL after the 2009 season. Russell recently decided to mount a comeback in hopes of returning to the league next season. Do the Jets have a capable quarterback on their roster? Probably not. But they can’t really believe Sanchez is SO bad tha...

The New York Jets reportedly have had some discussions about JaMarcus Russell, who reportedly is interested in making a comeback.

Carson Palmer is a candidate to be released if he doesn’t reduce his salary

According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSportsline.com, Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer could become a cap casualty if he chooses not to renegotiate his current contract. Carson signed a six year contract extension through the 2014 season while he was with the Bengals in 2005. In addition to the three years remaining on his existing deal, the value of the extension was...

Could West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith be a target for the Raiders in the draft?

There has been growing speculation West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith is a target for the Oakland Raiders. Along with the possibility if Carson Palmer refuses to reduce his salary, he could be released and the Raiders with the number three overall pick would select a quarterback. According to Bill Williamson of ESPN.com the Twitter talk has escalated around the Raiders quarterback...

Offseason Needs: Oakland Raiders

1. Quarterback The Oakland Raiders could survive another year or two with Carson Palmer if they upgrade the talent around him. But it is definitely time to begin the search for his replacement. And no, Terrelle Pryor is not the answer. Geno Smith may be an option with the third pick, but they are more likely to hold off and take a developmental prospect in the second or third round...

Jets reportedly discussed JaMarcus Russell

Just in case you didn’t think the New York Jets circus could get any nuttier, we have this nugget to pass along. According to Conor Orr of The Star-Ledger, the Jets have discussed JaMarcus Russell. Russell was the No. 1 overall pick by the Oakland Raiders in 2007 and hasn’t played in the league since the 2009 season. He reportedly is interested in making a comeback, and the...

Jets Discussed The Idea of Adding JaMarcus Russell?

Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that the Jets have had “some very exploratory, informal discussions” regarding former Raiders’ No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell. The report mentions that these talks were held after GM Mike Tannenbaum was let go, but doesn’t say whether or not new GM John Idzik was part of these discussions. Last week, multiple reports...

For the price of a Blair Thomas jersey, it actually makes sense for the New York Jets to glance at JaMarcus Russell

Resembling Precious at a svelte 308 pounds and training to make an NFL comeback, the New York Jets have reportedly had “some very exploratory, informal discussions” regarding former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell. The 27-year-old Russell, who Oakland took out of Louisiana State University (LSU) with the first overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, threw 18 touchdowns...

Former 49ers and Raiders OL assaults ex-boyfriend in fight over soy sauce

No that’s not a typo in the headline. I know you think that because the NFL has no current players who’ve come out of the closet. And there’s a very low number of ex-players (and since we’re talking about ex-Niners, c’mon Jeff Garcia, quit living the lie, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being who you actually are) who are known to be gay that this must be an error...

Put zero stock into talk of JaMarcus Russell, Jets

Jets interested in Jamarcus Russell?

Could Jamarcus Russell be an option at quarterback for the New York Jets? (Credit: Associated Press) After the debacle that was the New York Jets quarterbacking situation in 2012, it’s no surprise that the team is looking to add to the competition in 2013. Tim Tebow was a huge bust after being acquired from Denver, and Mark Sanchez hasn’t shown much improvement since leading...

Jets Rumors: New York Has Explored JaMarcus Russell

Following his late-season benching, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has several questions surrounding him as the team prepares for the 2013 campaign.

Report: JaMarcus Russell Gets Attention From Jets As Franchise Looks for Quarterback to Push Mark Sanchez

The Jets may be open to moving on from Mark Sanchez, but they’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to finding a suitable replacement. With this year’s draft unlikely to produce any strong quarterbacks, the Jets have had to look elsewhere in the league — or, in this case, elsewhere in the league from several years ago. The Jets have had “some very exploratory...

AHAHAH Jets AHAHA Consider AHAHA JAMARCUS RUSELL AHAHAHAHAHA

ESPN - AFC East Blog Few things surprise me anymore when covering the NFL. But the Newark Star-Ledger's report of the Jets having "exploratory" discussions regarding quarterback JaMarcus Russell is one of those instances. Russell quickly flamed out as a No. 1 overall pick in 2007. He had weight problems, work ethic questions and other issues during his three-year...

Jets seek to continue comedy of errors at QB

After last offseason’s high profile acquisition of Tim Tebow failed to generate any spark in the offense (and tended to indicate that the decision makers in the organization had no idea what they were doing), the New York Jets once again find themselves looking for answers at the QB position in unlikely places.  Given that their salary cap situation is dire enough to consider...
