JaMarcus Russell According to Michael C. Wright of ESPN, the Bears will work out free agent QB JaMarcus Russell on Friday. Matt Garafolo of USA Today reports that the Ravens are also showing interest in Russell Russell, 28, is arguably one of the biggest draft busts in recent years but also has a lot of talent when it comes to throwing the football.  Ultimately though work ethic has been an issue with the former No. 1 overall pick and dropped out of the league to which his weight ballooned to 315 pounds.  Much has been made of his comeback attempt to shed 50 pounds and get a tryout with a team by working out with retired QB Jeff Garcia at TEST Football Academy.
