http://bleacherrepor...us-hits-the-gym He is down to 280 lbs from 315 lbs in Feb with a target weight of 265 lbs. I have to admit im pulling for the guy, according to NFL.com he is already drawing interest from a few teams. Dont get me wrong, a lot of his failing is his own fault but lets not forget, he was drafted by the Raiders, where young promising QBs go to die.

I know this isnt Panther related, but its been very slow news day today and came across this and thought I would post. What do you guys think? Anyone else rooting for this guy or am I just crazy? His only crime was being lazy and immature, other NFL players have done way worse and bounced back.

I find myself rooting for him to make a comeback as well. Are they still televising his comeback training? I caught like the 1st two, and he looked horribly inaccurate with a ton of his throws. Also, I would like to see him get down in the 245-255 range weight wise. He looked big as a house and awkward when I saw him the 1st few episodes.

Im not so sure about that. He has perfect timing considering this is one of the worst QB draft classes in awhile, a lot of teams are desperate for a QB and there is just such limited supply of them now. Name a FA QB now that has the potential and arm of a 255 lb motivated Jamarcus Russell with something to prove. Ryan Fitzpatrick? John Skelton? I cant think of any.

Also, what risk would a team have bringing him to training camp and see what he has. Guy has a cannon of a arm. Dont be suprised to see a team like the Jets show interest. Wouldnt be suprised if Chud would show interest in Cleveland either

Not sure why people enjoy the thrill of watching people fail. Either the kid is sippin on that syzurrp or he bounces back. How anyone is emotionally tied to the outcome if he fails is quite sad.

I would move to have Russell as Cam's backup. The dude has legit potential and a huge arm. He was a beast at LSU. He didn't fail himself. Oakland failed him. No one is going to succeed in Oak. Look at how many great college players that went into Oakland and failed. A lot, and Floyd may just be one of them 3 weeks from now.

The only person I'm thrilled watching him fail is Julius Peppers in Chicago.
