Teams Allegedly Interested in JaMarcus Russell, But They Are Being Kept Secret

JaMarcus Russell Comeback

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.

That is why the teams that are supposedly interested are never named. But according to a report on courtesy of Gridiron Grit, JaMarcus is a hot commodity.

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.
