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 have “had some very exploratory, informal discussions” about him, according to Orr. Orr notes these discussions took place after GM Mike Tannenbaum was let go. The Jets have said they plan to bring in competition for Mark Sanchez at quarterback next season. Who figured that it might be Russell? I suppose it’s worth giving Russell a look at quarterback depending on who you are. If you’re an established organization that has a strong head coaching figure, it can’t hurt to see how Russell looks. But if you’re an out-of-control organization that lacks discipline and structure — ahem, the Jets — you stay as far away from this guy as possible. Russell had a notoriously poor work ethic with the Raiders, an alleged codeine problem, and he is currently overweight. He is the last place the Jets should be looking for answers, but then again, this is the sort of thing that makes the Jets who they are.
