Props to him. He's under the weight he was at when he was drafted.

I'd love for him to come back and be a pro bowl player.

I don't understand all the talk surrounding him. If he sucked 3 years ago, what makes you think he's going to be any better after he's been away from football so long?

I never thought he was even that good of a college player

Kudos to him. Hopefully the guy can keep it together and restore his career.

Because he had mad potential. The only thing holding him back was immaturity, laziness and being in a terrible organization. Now fast forward 4 years later and he seems to have lost the laziness and immaturity and skys the limit for him now.

Not only that but he is the poster child for low risk/high reward player. A team could sign him for the vet minimum for a QB with tons of upside that is only 27 years old.

Here, let me put it this way. Brandon Weeden was a 1st round pick and hes 30 years old (or close to it) now if you are a NFL GM. What is more appealing, signing Brandon Weeden to 7 million after drafting him in the 1st round, or getting a new, improved Jamarcus Russell with tons of upside (pass 70 yds on one knee) for pennies?.

It takes work to be an nfl qb. He never put that in before but his ceiling was unlimited. He should get a shot as some teams third string. I'd love for him to replace jimmy next year.

Does a WR with a fast 40 have an unlimited ceiling? To me Russell was the QB equivalent of that....just a big arm. All the other aspects you look for just never stood out

Congrats to the kid. I didn't have it all put together when I came out of college either. Took me a while before life got tired of waiting on me and shoved some truth down my throat.

Was accuracy a issue when he was drafted? Don't remember hearing that it was that much. Not like cam.
