The only reason I've turned it that way was because there has been so many threads about "discrimination". So I apologize if you didn't mean it like that. But the only reason Leaf would possibly get a better chance than Russel would is because he's in better shape than him. I really hope JaMarcus can turn this around and shock the world but I can't help to doubt him since he let himself get up to 3+ bills.
For folks who love to clain that things are black and white, u r quick to turn my comment into just that. And I have read a lot of the Ryan Leaf posts. But my point still remains, despite all the mess that Ryan has done to himself, if he was to make a comeback in the NFL, he would be given a better chance than Russel. The reason why? Ryan was not turned into a mockery like Russel was over his weaknesses. He was given endless changes to get his act together. He just kepr screwing up and left the NFL on his own. The sentiments surrounding Ryan seems more on the level of disappointed and not simple a desire to ridicule and mock like in the case of Russel.

Honestly, this is how I feel. If he was/is serious about returning, he can't be 300+ pounds; especially at QB. Get down to 250-260, then come back with the return talk. I hope he comes back, though
he was 320lbs. He came out saying he dropped 12 lbs and was ready for an NFL return. Why wouldn't he get into playing shape before he came out and said he wanted to return. He is not serious about this.

You want me to make a list of all of the players before him that did this? Murderers got second chances in the NFL. Cut him some slack.
k, name 10 guys that were paid 40+ mil guaranteed and lasted 2 or 3 years in the league.

I'd just tell him to give the Raiders back the $39 million dollars he stole first.

looks like my prediction might be coming true:
The Newark Star-Ledger reports the Jets have had "some very exploratory, informal discussions" regarding ex-Raiders QB JaMarcus Russell.
Russell, of course, was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft and has been out of the league since 2009. However, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported last week that Russell is planning to show his face at the NFL Scouting Combine next month in hopes of making a comeback. Russell is currently tipping the scales at 305 pounds, but hopes to get down to his past playing weight of around 260. The Star-Ledger says these talks happened after Mike Tannenbaum was fired, but it's unclear if John Idzik was in the fold, yet. Only the Jets. Jan 28 - 10:45 PM
