    Yeah, that's pretty sad. If he doesn't do anything in the league after this he has to be a bigger bust than Ryan Leaf. Awful.

    I'm sure somewhere will sign him and see if they can coach him up, but his accuracy is atrocious. Not NFL level.

    Yeah they said it was going to take several cuts to get rid of him! The topper is that he's still going to grab another 3 mil from Crazy Al's bank account.....Oh the reason why it'll take several cuts? He weighs 305 lbs and you ain't just cutting a man that size with just one cut. I wonder if Rex Ryan will try and sign him? He likes those big strapping OT's....

    I think it was profootballtalk that said there are rumors of him being around 300lbs.  What an idiot.  Goodbye football career.  At least he cashed in.

    We can thank JaMarcus Russell for one thing... the fact that a rookie wage scale may be implemented =)

    Amen to that.  He should become the poster child for a rookie wage scale.  He cashed in and lost his will to play ball.  I kind of hoped the Raiders would have given him just one more year though.  He guaranteed us a high 1st round pick from them in 2011.

     I can't believe that no one has suggested we pick him up.

    Redskins were the 4th pic with Jason Campbell at the wheel... I think we should do just fine. =)

    Re: Report: Raiders preparing to cut JaMarcus Russell

    Can you believe this guy? Seriously , the kid got all the talent in the world and hasnt improve at all since high school! This is the chit that kills me , this is the chit that really gets under my skin! Hes played almost two and half years worth of football and piled up these amazing stats. 18 TD's , 23 INT's , 25 fumbles-15 lost , sacked 70 times , 52.1 comp % and 6 yards every pass attempt. Simply f'in amazing! Im a huge sports fan and theres at least one or two plays every year where I say , " well sh it I can f'in do that ". Now forget about plays , Im talking career here , at least 3-4 of us could have done his entire career! This is absolutely f'in putrid , this makes me f'in sick! I mean at least show up in shape! Do a f'in push up , do some f'in sit-ups! How the fu ck do you let yourself balloon to over 300 lbs?!?! Your a fu ck ing QB ( allegedly ) and have every fu ck ing resource known to man available to you and you sit on your fat azz and balloon up like Kirstie f'in Alley! He should be ashamed of himself...but hes not , he'll find someone to blame it on besides his fat f'in azz! Pathetic , putrid , absolutely f'in disgusting! You know what , you have to blame the Raiders and that old , wrinkly di ck head , Uncle Al , the guy needs a f'in wheelcair and a druel cup. This is their fault as much as it is Russell's , seriously Russell wasnt tearing it up in college. He had a good 3 weeks at the end of his final year there , he killed it for about a month and landed  crazy $. Seriously look at the tape , look at his games in college , he wasnt " the man " at all. Sure he had crazy physical tools , but you could see this coming miles away and the Raiders got what they deserved!

    Well, he doesn't beat women. Otherwise, there would 65 threads about how we should trade a second rounder for him.

    JaMarcus Russell has 30 million ways to say I don't care. He got his bonus, so if he's released, there's a lot of quan coming to him. Guaranteed money!
    Personally speaking, If I knew my peers, specifically my teammates thought I was a lazy scrub, I'd do everything to improve my game and earn their respect. It's going to be really interesting to see how he handles this and who decides to pick him up after his release.

    Re: Report: Raiders preparing to cut JaMarcus Russell

    One-time, maybe he has realized this and is eating his sorrows away? I agree with you, it's garbage how he get millions in guaranteed money and hasn't done anything. Many people struggle to make a million in their entire life, and this guy did it for having a good year playing college football.

    I really hope he signs with another team and tries to fix himself. Honestly though, I don't see it happening. He's a multi-millionaire who obviously cares more about than football. He doesn't know how many people dream of having the kind of talent he had. It makes me sick.

    Re: Report: Raiders preparing to cut JaMarcus Russell

    The more I think about this, the less I am inclined to toss brickbats at JaMarcus Russell. From a purely cynical perspective, he's the perfect success story. The kid won the genetic lottery and got handed a fortune without ever having to actually accomplish anything outside the scope of his natural gifts. Who's fault is that? Barring some unlikely resurrection, he will surely replace Ryan Leaf as the poster boy for untapped potential -- or bonehead scouting -- however you care to look at it, but nobody pointed a gun at Al Davis and said "Mortgage your franchise's future on this raw project or I'll shoot you in the head" (At least I don't think anybody did). He's hardly the first athlete to take the money and run. So, he's not good enough to earn the money he was promised and, unfortunately for the Raiders, he does not appear inclined to try to get better -- and, frankly, hasn't really shown that he could even if he wanted to. It's all well and good for people like us to offer morality takes, but Russell didn't create the system that rewards exactly the gifts he was lucky enough to be born with. My guess is that the kid doesn't work hard because he never had to and doesn't know how -- and now there's simply no incentive. It may not yet be too late to teach him things he should have been learning along the way that have nothing to do with football, but I wouldn't bet on it and I wouldn't advise anyone else in the NFL to do it either (not that they've ever solicited my opinion -- more's the pity).
