Former first-round NFL Draft selection and widely regarded as one of the biggest draft busts in history, QB JaMarcus Russell, worked out for the Chicago Bears this week. Russell showed up weighing in a 267 pounds, not bad for a tight end, but Russell plays quarterback. Russell has struggled with his weight over the years and was reportedly tipping the scales at 311 when he attempted to jump start his failed NFL career.
Russell has been working out with former NFL journeyman quarterback Jeff Garcia and his team this offseason and would like to have another shot in the NFL. His passion for the game has been questioned throughout his brief NFL career and it appears that the Chicago Bears have no interest in signing the former Oakland Raiders quarterback according to various reports, including ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
