Former Raiders’ Draft Bust JaMarcus Russell Considering A Comeback

JaMarcus RussellBack in 2007, the Oakland Raiders attempted to rebuild their storied NFL franchise with the number one pick in the NFL Draft. The pick was a no-brainer for the Raiders with quarterback JaMarcus Russell arguably the most talented player in the draft with the biggest upside.

At the time, Oakland was trying to right the ship after failing to bounce back following the loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers five years earlier. The team was falling apart and desperately needed a boost with Russell thought to be the right man for the job in Oakland.

Unfortunately, Russell ultimately turned out to be one of the biggest draft busts in NFL history. The LSU product only won seven games as a starter for the Raiders before being released following his third season with the team.

According to Kristian Dyer of Yahoo Sports, Russell is ready to attempt an NFL comeback:

One of the biggest draft busts in NFL history is trying to re-kindle his football career. Yahoo! Sports has learned that JaMarcus Russell is planning a comeback attempt that he hopes will see him play in the league again. The former No. 1 pick in the 2007 NFL draft has not played a single NFL snap since the 2009 season with the Oakland Raiders.

Russell is reportedly receiving help from former NFL players Jeff Garcia and Marshall Faulk to get ready for his comeback. The former number one overall pick was heavily criticized in the past for his weight and has made an effort to correct that problem losing 12 pounds to get down to 308, but is still overweight for the quarterback and someone that has been out of the game for some time.

The 27-year-old said the following about his desire to return to the NFL via Dyer:

“My first year out, I couldn’t watch football but after a while, I couldn’t keep the TV off. I got that itchy feeling but now I gotta watch it, gotta watch,” Russell said.

Although Russell appears motivated and ready to redeem himself on the NFL level, it remains to been seen whether or not any teams in the league are willing to take a chance on one of the worst draft busts of all-time. There’s plenty of teams on the lookout for quarterbacks heading into the off-season, but Russell will be hoping for a miracle to simply land a backup role on a team moving forward.
