Report: JaMarcus a svelte 290

If Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell indeed suffers from lethargy addiction, it has not affected Russell’s willingness to move his hand from his plate to his mouth.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports, citing two sources, that Russell recently weighed in at 290 pounds.

Raiders director of squad development Willie Brown recently promised that Russell, the first pick in the 2007 draft, had lost “quite a bit of weight.”  It’s possible that Brown is telling the truth and that Schefter’s report is accurate.  This would mean that, in the past, Russell had been significantly heavier than his listed weight of 260.

  1. Why don’t the Raiders turn him into a two way player? He’s definitely big enough to be an under tackle in a Tampa 2.
    Oh wait, he’s also a total puss. Nevermind.

  2. What a fat tub of dung. Seriously. This is why rookies in the NFL need a salary cap. What a waste of money this POS is.

  3. Did they add the 30 pounds of Jackass star wars outfit that Raiders idiots are so fond of?……Oh wait……..i mean Thug attire…..

  4. Maybe if he lost “quite a bit of weight” he should look behind him…I think it must be hanging there on his ass.
    Is it too late to convert him to an offensive lineman?

  5. BSPN….I also heard adam schefter is dating women again….but yet to be confirmed if it is treue or not.

  6. That fatbacked bastard! Hey, Brady Quinn and Kyle Orton may suck, but they’re not big, fat, stupid Quarterbacks. Gimme ROLANDO MCLAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Yes, the overused and equally dreaded “un named sources” quote (and I chided him on his twitter where he posted). I want to know how he got a sniff of facts from closed sessions. The local beat writers don’t know for sure and I guarantee some one who co authors a book with Shanarat isn’t gonna get a close to any “inside info”.
    Just like the McNabb crap….keep throwing Sh$t to the wall…..eventually something will stick.
    What I really want to know is…..why is praised when occasionally correct and NOT admonished when he is (often) wrong?

  8. maybe if his career as a QB doesn’t work out, he can move to nose tackle. plenty of 3-4 teams are looking for one.

  9. lean mean 290………lmao. what a waste…… this is the reasoning for a rookie wage scale………

  10. hahaha keep going florio! you hate the raiders so much! How many other qbs do u talk about how much the weigh? Your still upset that the raiders knocked out your steelers from the playoffs.
    Get used to it cause The bruce is loose!

  11. I’m not near as worried about the kid’s mid-section as I am worried about the mid-section between his ears… and his heart.

  12. Out of the three bustateers jbust, mcbust, and bey bust, jfatbust is the worst ! Cut the worst QB in league history, please! I will take Bruce any day!!

  13. The Raiders should trade him to the Jets. Maybe he could use Rex Ryan for inspiration. Oh wait, a professional athlete couldn’t get gastric bypass surgery. Could they?

  14. Same clown that reported Nnamdi was being traded to the Jets, Philly and that Seymour would not play in Oakland. And lets not forget the Cable is going to be arrested, punished by the NFL and would be fired.
    Since he was dumped by NFL Network I did not even know this clown was still out there. Who is he working for now?

  15. Yes Raidersteve, because Florio reports what Adam Shefter reported he clearly hates the Raiders. Brilliant.

  16. Yeah! A JaMarcus is fat post!
    The over/under for comments should be about 65 for this time of night.
    How many Raiderettes on here will defend Crypt Keeper Al? You know, those people who still think Michael Bush was a steal in the 4th round – ’cause really, how often can you find a RB who can run for a thousand total yards in his first three years…or a QB who can throw for a total of 18 TD’s in his first three years…or a WR in the first round who’s on pace to catch a total of 27 passes in his first three years.

  17. Seriously. Put him at left guard. It’s the Raiders. At least it’d make a good human interest story.

  18. A biscuit short of 3 bills huh? Sounds like Big Ben’s got a little (?) competition for the Fat Boy QB award?

  19. Can this douche get any more full of sh!+, seriously? 300 lb QB. Get the f*** outta here.

  20. Michael Bush is a good pick! He is a great RB, it would just be a little more obvious, if he were on a better team. I am a Raiders fan, and I am thankful for Jafatass…..because he is like a second moon orbiting the earth, reminding the league every night that they are retarded for not implementing a mandatory rookie pay scale. He is the definition of loser. Mcfadden sucks, Bey was overdrafted by Al, but I will give him a chance. Al is terrible at drafting, but don’t take it out on Michael Bush. On a team with a good offensive line, and some coaches with brains, he would have easily rushed for 1000 yds a season. Plus he is cheap. Please direct your hatred at the gigantic loser that is impossible to miss. I would trade our second for Mcnabb, but I see no reason Asomougha will go anywhere. If they want a top 42 pick, give them one. How did Asomougha even get in the conversation? Just doesn’t make sense. Peace.

  21. HUSH,….HUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If you look close enough,
    you will see it,
    there’s a light,….
    hush my raiders,…….hush.
    to be con’t

  22. Assertion: Raidernation is the North Korea of the NFL.
    Provided for consideration:
    They are both closed to the outside world but everyone already knows everything they do sucks.
    They both think everyone is actively trying to keep them down when, really, all they do is make the rest of the world laugh.
    They both have a leader who is about fifty years past his prime (if he really ever had a “prime”) and lives a mile and a half underground cowering in fear that he might be destroyed by those they hate – and hate them.
    They both have their own people snowed into thinking that they are great and have sycophantic leeches that perpetuate this myth.
    But only the Raiders… the stupid, pitiful, funny-like-when-a-clown-dies-funny, Raiders gave megabucks to a brontosaurus turd like Jamarcus Russell. Even North Korea isn’t that stupid.

  23. First pick in the draft. Any player they wanted they could have had.
    The Raiders chose Jamarcus “Jane” Russell. without the cross your heart support.

  24. Why don’t the Raiders get Fat Albert from the Skins? (Can you imagine the tires on that bus?)

  25. I hate the rookie pay scale; teams pay millions of dollars to these guys before they even step on the field. Some purchase homes for their mothers; others splurge on cars, clothes, and jewelry. JaMarcus apparently spends a lot of his money on Double Whoopers with Cheese. Stop paying college players more money than proven veterans!

  26. Hey Mike,
    thanks for posting the tweet I sent you!!!
    But back to real story … NOW CAN THEY CUT FATTY and GET DONOVAN “F” McNABB????

  27. McNabb, Zach Miller, Chaz Schilens, Louis Murphy, Michael Bush — and the “Big, Tall, Athletic Speed Guy”, Bruce Campbell at Left Tackle!!!
    Bruce Campbell = Tony Ugoh, Jr.

  28. He’s gonna be the baddest buffet bouncer in the country after Oakland cuts him in a few months.

  29. Jamarcus must’ve been training hard at William “Refrigerator” Perrys all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant.

  30. Love the Raider fans on here. Hey guys do you realize you have the
    worst owner, worst QB and the worst record in the NFL for the last 7 years.
    You have the worst record for draft picks, the worst stadium, the worst Head coach etc etc etc.
    Yet you still defend Al Davis and anything Raider.

  31. You people are way too cruel. What ever happened to being nice and kind to overpaid players? You are all mean. Jamarcus is in the NFL record books now. So get over it!
    1. Most overpaid player in NFL history.
    2. Fattest QB in history.
    3. Ok, he just plain sucks and the Raiders are the laughing stock for draftinghim and paying him.
    Just trade him for a fifty eighth round pick in the 2087 draft and hope some other team will be stupid enough to fall for it and eat his huge salary before he eats it all.

  32. where’s that weird, scary dude…. “how ’bout that!’ or something? Usually he would be all over this kinda shit, mentioning each of us by name, “rallying” us to his team….etc, etc.
    Does he finally realize that the Raiders are a pile of dung and his beloved coach/GM/owner is so far beyond gone that no one can find him?

  33. Al “get over it” Davis engaging in serious trade talks for McNabb is proof enough Russell is/has frittered away Davis’ patience with lackluster effort during the off-season, and Russell’s refusal to renegotiate a smaller contract.

  34. svelte? and all of raider nation looks for the nearest dictionary
    also, does this mean we will see Jamarcus on the sideline with a Nutrigrain bar instead of skittles?

  35. Where are you blueeyedevil. I want to hear your excuse for this one. Let me guess its “the man” making him eat. You racist.

  36. what are you guys complaining about????
    at least the Raiders filled their need at Nose Tackle
    HERSHEYs PROUDLY PRESENTS
    Oakland Raiders NoseTackle
    JaMarcus “Dunkin Donut aka the Human BigMc” Russell

  37. I said after Russell weighed in at the combine that he would eat himself out of the league within 5 years… considering he reportedly has lost weight and looks trimmer, yet weighs 290… I think that it is safe to say that if he played for any other team for the Raiders… well… he wouldn’t be playing for any other team other than the Raiders because all the other teams would have cut his fat ass.

  38. Here in Denver, we love Ja Marcus Russell.. We view him as a very high quality player.. We also love DHB.. We hope that Mr. Davis continues picking high quality players in the future.. We have total and complete confidence in him..

  39. $50 says they sign this fat lazy POS to the Dan Marino diet. I heard JR got caught trying to eat one of his 6 CT diamond earrings. It was smoothered in hot sauce.

  40. Hey, but there’s some good news: J-Rus is reportedly going to make some money on the side – I heard he got the part of Grimace in the next McDonalds commercial.

  41. Its going to be the radio/chunky soup backfield.. with JR as the lead blocker for the fatcat backfield option.. in other new, news Jamarcus Russell.. biggest (draft) bust.. ever… ever!!!

  42. Two weeks ago he weighed in at 271 and now 290???? cant see a 19 lbs swing in two weeks, sorry.

  43. It’s fitting that JaMarcus is supersized. After all, he’ll be working at McDonalds in a couple of years.

    Uhhh yea, cuz we’re Raider fans DUMBASS… REAL fans, not bandwagon fans…
    Some people are so retarded…

  45. If you have an enemy, do not wish death on him. Do not wish misfortune on him. Do not wish ill health, ill will, or tragedy on him.
    Merely wish for him more money than he can manage, & it will ruin him.
    Jamarcus may be dumb, but even HE knows he is supposed to make close to $10M if he somehow manages to stay on the roster this year. Thus, even though JR knows that he is in training (technically) to ‘win’ $10M more, he STILL can’t get his shit together! His #1 priority is to stay on the team, anyway he can. He’s not even sweatin’ it.

  46. “the big bronco says: March 27, 2010 7:32 AM

    Yeah, I bet you loved him when he hit Chaz last season beating your Donkeys in your house.
    He DOES suck, but what does that make you guys???
    You have NO place to talk.

  47. @ wan8iv
    I have an update that you were seen on a date with Adam Schefter, so I guess its true that you both still like to putt from the rough, and like the salami….or at the very least switch hit.

  48. He figured “what the hell, jason peters was a 320 lb tight end for the bills, why cant i be the 320 lb qb throwing him the ball”
    someone forgot to tell JaMarcus that JP was moved to o-line…
    or maybe he realizes he sucks and could lose his job to JP Losman so he figures if he gains weight he can move to tackle

    Well, I don’t know about “primes” but three super bowls and aiding in the AFL merger, i’d take that any day on my team.
    Not to defend Russell, because I think he is beyond lousy, but in the draft when many teams had him at the top in the QBs draft board of ’07, what then? Somebody was going to pick him, and pretty high up. All first round draft picks can be busts. If stafford doesn’t take the lions to the playoffs next season, is he a bust then?

  50. Jamarcus: Subway still has the $5 Footlongs on sale. Let’s get started on a litttle diet here.

  51. Yes Raidersteve, because Florio reports what Adam Shefter reported he clearly hates the Raiders. Brilliant.

  52. They need to curb the money the college players get when they sign, call it the “Jamarcus Russell” rule.

  53. I saw him on TV during an NBA game all blinged out acting like he was king shit. He just doesn’t get it.
