Yep... Weighed in at 310 and has 20% body fat IIRC. They said he should play at 265-260 but if it's possible I'd rather see him at 245-250

If he doesn't stick to it he'll definitely be done in the NFL

I will pull for him, but I'm not sure why.

Many think that the NFL is like Hollywood, or being a rapper or something...I don't think most of the kids that are drafted realize how much hard work it is, and how much time it takes to be good.

I know he's got a lot of haters and I'm not sure how this whole thing will pan out for him... but hopefully he makes it. It'd be nice to see him get a second chance and make the most of it. Haha, it'd be nice to see him go back to the Raiders... but I seriously doubt that poo is gonna' happen.

At least that would settle who is the biggest bust between him and Ryan Leaf.

I hope he comes back successful as well... I don't see him coming back this year though, I'm expecting him to get signed next year, maybe half way through the season this year if someone gets injured

His problem was always lack of effort. If he treats his body and his game like a professional dude can ball.

I wish nothing but the best for him in his return. People forget how gifted of an athlete he is sometimes. It was always the work ethic holding him back and i'm glad to see he may finally get it.

Money is a helluva motivator.

That signing bonus got spent on "purple drank"

I hope he fails miserably. Again.

Episode two now in the OP



I think he has a good cast surrounding him.... But what I don't get is they want him to get back to what he was when he was with the Raiders. Why not try to make him better? They want him to weigh 265 and run a 4.8 40... Why not try to get him to 245-250 and have him run a 4.6?? You got to have him better than what he was in Oakland (shrugs).

I love his natural ability. It's unreal. Even at 320 pounds fat he's more athletic than most when they are 180. The biggest thing is proving his head is in it.

I agree but I feel they should push him to better himself from what he was in Oakland...

I don't know why I'm rooting for his successful return, but I'd like to see a success story come from this.

the problem has never been his physical ability it whether he wants it bad enough mentally.

you got to get in football shape.you got to study defense and work on being more accurate with your passes. you cant stare down your wideouts and you have to go through your progressions. you have to be able to be mobile enough to extend plays and have a quick release to get the ball out. you got to stop being lazy and work over time. you got to be a leader on the field first then be a leader off the field. no one is gonna listen to you if you cant play. you gotta perform under pressure and have the will of a lion to never give up.

and most of all ignore the fuging media.

My boy said he saw this the other day...said he was pretty inaccurate with his throws. He needs to get that weight down to about 240-250. I'm rooting for him

Yeah when they had him exhausted he was overthrowing his targets pretty bad...

I agree I think his game weight should be about 250-245 but they want him at 265, also think he should try and run a 4.6 instead of a 4.8 but I'm not running a training program so what do I know? lol. I hope he succeeds as well he's working hard for it at least

Free agent JaMarcus Russell will hold a "pro day" on or around April 10.[/background][/background][/size][color=#0000FF][size=3][background=transparent]
Russell has been training at TEST Football Academy in San Diego with Jeff Garcia in hopes of making a comeback. He recently weighed under 300 pounds -- an accomplishment for Russell -- but still has "hills to climb." Russell will be throwing to Larry Fitzgerald and ex-Bucs WR Michael Clayton at the workout.[/background][/size][/color][background=transparent]

I'm sure if he sees something in him he'll have a talk with Arians about bringing him in... When you have Kolb, Skeleton, or the other one Russel doesn't seem like a bad option then right? lol

Matt Ryan would REALLY suck in AZ.

His pencil neck would be broke in half the fist game of the season.
