NFL draft bust JaMarcus Russell is attempting a comeback

http://sports.yahoo....14730--nfl.html

Currently at 308 pounds, Russell is down from the 320 pounds he weighed this past fall and has been focusing on cardio conditioning the past six weeks to lose the weight.

“My first year out, I couldn’t watch football but after a while, I couldn’t keep the TV off. I got that itchy feeling but now I gotta watch it, gotta watch,” Russell said.

“The last few years, the things going through my life, football is my job and it is how it feeds my family. People would say [that] I didn’t love the game but that pisses me off. People don’t know the real you but I want people to know the real me and see what I can do. People are always saying that I’m a bust. I want show them I’m not. I’m committed to this now.”

Yahoo! Sports has learned that Russell’s mentor through this whole process is former NFL wide receiver Mike Clayton, who like Russell is a LSU product. Over the next couple months, Russell will be training with Brian Martin of TEST Football Academy and TEST West, whose draft products include Joe Flacco and Patrick Peterson among others. In addition, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia (quarterback technique training), Olympian Ato Boldon (speed training and analysis), Dr. Robert Price of Elite Minds (mental and psychological analysis), former NFL wide receiver Quinn Early (disciplinary work and focus), former New York Giants quarterback Scott Brunner (reading defenses and classroom sessions) and NFL Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk (reading defenses) will work as part of the team trying to reclaim the quarterback’s promise.

^ Probably got it around the time he left LSU and was drafted by the Raiders (Raider fan). Don't think almost anyone would've envisioned the dude performing and conducting himself as embarrassingly and pathetically as he did.

As a Raider fan, I wish him well. I guess it's because I'm used to bad things with the Raiders. When you're used to bad things, you just don't get as mad in general.

He has to be dedicated in order to have any chance at a comeback though. Even then, who knows? He's never been an accurate passer.

Imagine if the raiders would have picked Adrian Peterson in that draft, or Pat Willis, or even Darrelle Revis, imagine what that secondary would have looked like with Nnamdi in his prime and Revis on both sides
