The name JaMarcus Russell will forever be the albatross around the neck of the Oakland Raiders franchise. It seems no matter how far removed we are from JaMistake the longer his shadow grows. Until Oakland rises from the ashes of this dismal decade the name of Russell will haunt our Silver and Black dreams.
Of course if some other sucker makes the unimaginable mistake of giving Russell another NFL check then the curse of JaBust will be lifted.
Thankfully the New York Jets exist. Hopefully the reports of their interest in Russell are real. Maybe the best thing that could happen to Raider Nation is the worst thing possible to happen to the career of Mark Sanchez.
No secrets the Jets were a mess in 2012. The Tim Tebow circus came to town and before you can say biggest draft bust ever Russell-mania could be on the way as well.
But hey one man’s trash is another’s treasure…so they say. Russell recently expressed his desire to get back into the game and judging by his 300-pound physique you know he’s serious. Maybe nothing will come of this but if nothing else just know the reality of Russell retuning to the NFL is becoming very possible.
