Ex-Raiders QB JaMarcus Russell Clears Waivers

Discussion in 'Oakland Raiders' started by BigBlueBruiser, May 7, 2010.

  1. JaMarcus Russell is now a free agent. As expected, the talented but extremely disappointing quarterback went unclaimed Friday and passed waivers. The Raiders used the No.1 overall pick on Russell in the 2007 draft but he never developed and was 7-18 as a starter, the worst winning percentage of any quarterback who was drafted No. 1, and became the quickest quarterback who was the No. 1 pick to be released by his drafting team.

    Some one will pick him up soon. I'm thinking Philly...

    Who knows if his ego will allow him to be signed for a minimum contract though?

    I think we all knew this was coming it was just a matter of time. The question is what team, if any would want to take a chance on Jamarcus.

    He's going to have to prove a crapload before any team picks him up. It'll be a team that already has a great QB and can take the time to help develop JaMarcus, esp. if he wants to come back and not just sit on his butt spending his millions.
