A recent photo posted by TEST performance academy shows free agent quarterback JaMarcus Russell looking fit and healthy. Shedding more than 50 pounds to get down to a svelte 265, the 27-year-old Russell deserves kudos for doggedly training and staying motivated. Selected by the Oakland Raiders out of LSU first overall in the 2007 draft, Russell threw 18 touchdowns, against 23 interceptions, for 4,083 yards over the course of 31 painful games as a professional. A codeine-craving signal caller with a diligence comparable to Jeffrey Lebowski‘s, the man previously resembling Rerun was fired by Oakland in May 2010. Once wooing … Continue reading →
BEST OF MAXIM
JaMarcus Russell is a new man. And he’s half the man he used to be — literally. The former NFL Draft bust made it known in January that he was attempting an NFL comeback because he wanted to change his legacy. At the time he began his comeback, Russell weighed 308 pounds, which is nearly [...]
All the sweat, tears and missed trips to McDonald’s has turned JaMarcus Russell into a lean 27-year-old quarter…
There is a growing belief that the CFL may be about to welcome former first overall draft pick, JaMarcus Russell, into their ranks as the quarterback looks to mount a comeback in the sport.
Viewed by many as the biggest draft bust in recent history, Russell left the Oakland Raiders after a disappointing six seasons, before drifting off into obscurity, aside from the occasional photo...
Few have ever questioned JaMarcus Russell's talent and ability. Instead, it's always been about his approach to the game and his work ethic. That's why Russell didn't cut it in Oakland and was out of football only three years after he was drafted first overall.
But Russell seems to have his head on straight as he makes an aggressive, public attempt at a comeback...

The post JaMarcus Russell looking slim (Photo) appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
JaMarcus Russell has made some serious steps to make it back into the league as these photos depict the former top draft pick of the Raiders about 50 pounds lighter after some serious training. As this weight loss represents the next step, he must now prove that he can throw the football and a team must be willing to take a huge risk to add him as a # 2/3 QB. You never know, would...
What up RaiderNation? Welcome to this week’s edition of My Two Cents, with your favorite prehistoric Raider fan, Old Timer. This week we will talk about the one real question mark the Raiders have on their roster, the Tight End position. When the Raiders let Brandon Myers walk this season, the Tight End position became up for grabs. With the [...]
The Raiders selected defensive end David Bass with the final pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.
A product of Missouri Western State University, and he immediately dove into the playbook and off-season training activities.
At 6’4”, 256-pound, the defensive end was a finalist for the Gene Upshaw Award in 2012, given to the best lineman in Division II football.
Bass feels he has...
Everybody knows that the Oakland Raiders are in a rebuilding year, but it remains unclear exactly what they’ll do with their offense. The quarterback position is being battled out by Matt Flynn and Tyler Wilson, and the wide receiver position is a question mark. But perhaps the biggest unknown is running back Darren McFadden. McFadden, or Run DMC as he is affectionately known to...
If there's anything former Raiders draft bust QB can take from his attempted comeback, is that he's healthier now and it'll presumably add a few more years to his life.

Russell has been getting into shape and looking to latch onto a team in 2013, but isn't drawing much interest. He did have a much publicized...
