Someone is lying.
Sometimes what happens is an agent will leaked these stories to the media in the hopes that teams will see it and all of sudden become interested.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the former Oakland Raiders No. 1 overall pick and 2007 NFL Draft bust—who ran the 40-yard dash in 5.2 seconds three months ago—is now garnering “significant interest” from “more than one team” around the league after shedding “50 pounds” since starting his latest NFL comeback.
While his potential destination is “kind of a well-kept secret,” Russell wants to go to a team that has a quarterback who is a leader where he can “sit on the bench and learn a little bit,” according to Rapoport.
