JaMarcus Russell likely will get another chance

Now that the Raiders have cut ties with quarterback JaMarcus Russell, the question becomes whether another team will give Russell a chance to fulfill the potential that made him the first overall pick in the 2007 draft.

Surely, someone will.  Every coach thinks that he’s the coach who’ll get through to a player who, for whatever reason, has been a failure. 

And every first-round bust who washes out with his first NFL team gets another chance, somewhere.  Ryan Leaf did.  Akili Smith did.  J.P. Losman did.

Also, assuming that the Raiders wanted Russell to take a pay cut, his agents were in position to shop the bottom-line offer.  Though it would have been tampering, it happens all the time. 

The cruelest irony, from the Raiders’ perspective, would be for Russell to finally take his career seriously in a new city, and to finally become a great player.  Like Eagles coach Buddy Ryan cutting Cris Carter 20 years ago to send him a clear message, Russell may finally wake up and dedicate himself to becoming the best player he can be.

Or not.  It won’t be easy for Russell, but surely there’s at least one coach out there who thinks he can do a better job than Lane Kiffin or Tom Cable did with a player who has an All-Pro arm, but a Pop Warner work ethic.

    He’ll get another chance just like Ryan Leaf did. Coaching high school football.

  2. fragmentb says: May 6, 2010 5:37 PM

    He’s too dumb to be an NFL QB.

  7. Cincinnasty says: May 6, 2010 5:38 PM

    I hope to gawd we don’t even think about him as a backup..

  8. soberjoe says: May 6, 2010 5:38 PM

    Please Detroit, sign him and try him out at DE or OLB. Nah nevermind, I’m thinking worse than Millen (still much worse than Mr. Davis by the way)

  9. joetoronto says: May 6, 2010 5:39 PM

    I hope the rat picks him up, they deserve each other.

    Would he really start for a Pop Warner team? Doubtful. Crow Pie never tasted so good.

  13. Chapnasty2 says: May 6, 2010 5:40 PM

    “Russell may finally wake up and dedicate himself to becoming the best player he can be”
    He should have had that wake-up call when he was benched over and over for unknown bums

  14. Perception=Reality says: May 6, 2010 5:40 PM

    At this point, I wouldn’t even care if he succeeds elsewhere. Good luck to him. That’s why I don’t care much for Randy Moss. A person’s true character comes out when they face adversity (and yes, playing for the Raiders here in the last 7 years has been adversity.) Florio, are you saying that, as a rule, kids in Pop Warner have no work ethic? Really???

  15. WarrenMoonGOAT says: May 6, 2010 5:42 PM

    maybe your right maybe your wrong, maybe Russell has enough money where he doesn’t even want to play football

  16. omegalh says: May 6, 2010 5:42 PM

    Why are you insulting Pop Warner?

  17. the big bronco says: May 6, 2010 5:42 PM

    I for one nominate the San Diego Chargers or the Kansas City Chiefs for this project..Please sign him today. That would be great..

  18. endzoneview says: May 6, 2010 5:44 PM

    Ironically, the only team that would take on such a project would be the Raiders.

  19. CleanSlaton says: May 6, 2010 5:44 PM

    He’s already been flushed down the league’s toilet, Oakland.
    Where could he land? [look out below! seriously.]
    Buffalo?
    Jacksonville?
    Hello UFL/CFL, this is JaMarcus Russell, the biggest mistake any NFL team made EVER.

  20. Ambrose says: May 6, 2010 5:47 PM

    Minnesota. I hear they have the most decisive player-coach in the history of the NFL, just begging for the opportunity to mentor a talent like this guy.

  21. this class sucks says: May 6, 2010 5:47 PM

    I think Buffalo would be a good pick. You need to have a strong arm to play there and they have some speed at WR in Evans and Parrish. I’m not saying he will be good, I’m just saying that seems like the best fit. They might as well take a chance on him they are rebuilding anyway.

    49ers will sign him. Then theyll have Alex Smith, David Carr, And Russell. 3 Former #1 Overall picks and all not worth a shit!

  26. WarrenMoonGOAT says: May 6, 2010 5:52 PM

    can he still enroll back into LSU?
    nah actually don’t do that, they’re pretty coo at the QB position

    His agent should call Jacksonville first. They are making the stupidest personnel decisions by far.

    JaMarcus already got a job offer…McDonalds wants to hire him to be the next Grimace. Compensation: all the Big Macs he can eat. That’ll make up for the $6 million he’s lost.

    He will fit right in with burgess and doug gabrieal and andrew walter. And that womean beater thug Randy moss.

    As Terry Bradshaw once said, “What’s the worst thing that can happen to a quarterback? He loses his confidence.”
    RIP Terry Bradshaw. The world misses you.

  36. huthutHUT says: May 6, 2010 5:58 PM

    Do you think he even WANTS another chance?
    A new opportunity means sweat, hard work and humility and I don’t think JaMarcus is interested in any of those things.

  37. Minnehaha Hustlers says: May 6, 2010 5:58 PM

    In all reality he does have all the physical talent if he only had the fire in his belly to match it. The big issue is the rookie wage scale. Giving these guys big money before they set a foot on the pro field is stupidity. If they had to go out and earn those millions, some may actually have the fire to compete.

  38. LeeroyJenkins says: May 6, 2010 5:58 PM

    Teams need to give up on letting coloreds play QB, it only works once a decade.

  39. BenRoethlisburger says: May 6, 2010 5:59 PM

    Dumbass Al Davis will probably see him floating out there and make him an offer…

    The guy is not dumb! He’s just overpaid and super lazy! Got a buddy from Mobile and knows of J.R.
    Too busy trying to keep it real and stay hood!
    I think when the money runs thin and the friends run out, that’s when he will get refocused! Jamarcus Russell is a prime example why there needs to be a rookie payscale!
    At 20 years old, from the hood and guaranteed to make $30 million!? Where’s the incentive? Whether I play great or bad, I’m still paid!
    I’m not saying you should get lazy, but with the current payscale in place, you have a bunch of bust that are no longer in the league, who made more money than some guys that are currently playing in the league!
    Prime example, Tim Couch! Tim couch walked away from the Cleveland Browns with a cool $40 million dollars. Now look at Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans and do the math!
    Who says the NFL doesn’t need a rookie payscale!

  49. John El Way says: May 6, 2010 6:15 PM

  50. danphxariz says: May 6, 2010 6:17 PM

    Excuse me, but exactly where did JP Losman get another chance after he was screwed over by Buffalo? With the UFL? That hardly counts. By being picked up at the end of the season last year by the Raiders as their 3rd string QB and making 1 pass attempt? Sorry I must have missed your memo, but WHERE is this alleged other shot that JP Losman had? That’s utter BS, he’s gotten next to nothing.

  51. Nambla Limbaugh says: May 6, 2010 6:18 PM

    there’s a new Golden Corral buffet opened up near me.. he’ll get a chance there

  55. azdetroitfan says: May 6, 2010 6:23 PM

    Looks like the arena league is going to have to add some extra padding to prevent fans from being injured.
    He probably wont go the grociery bagging route, that would be a conflict of interest

    He gotta be better than Jake Del Homme!!! Sign him up Mr. Walrus!!!!! You guys cannot seriously be thinking that Seneca Wallace is the answer ???!!!!???? Sign JaWalrus up ! You can always lease him to Seaworld in Aurora if he cannot hack it.

  57. Lucky5927 says: May 6, 2010 6:32 PM

    I am so tired of people saying this guy has great talent. This guy was an “OK” QB until the bowl game against a terrible Notre Dame Defense and used that to sucker in the Raiders to drafting him. Anyone who has an IQ for football (S0rry Mel Kiper) knew this guy was going to suck more than Lindsay Lohan on “Bobbing for Apples” Day at her rehab facility.

  58. AllThat says: May 6, 2010 6:43 PM

    Sign him up Steelers. The only thing he has assaulted is the buffett.

    P.S. All of you bitching about Florio’s usage of Pop Warner, did you ever play Pop Warner? I did, and I don’t remember any two-a-days, weight training, film study, classwork, or offseason work. I basically remember practicing for two hours, three nights a week, then going to McDonald’s.
    That sounds about right for Jamarcus.

    Poor raiderRob thinks that tub was their only problem, and campbell will take them somewhere. Next season it will be whaaaaaa Jason Campbell ruined our playoff hopes. SF won’t sign him, they don’t need another lineman. All that Russel is good for anyway. The raiders will still suck and finish last in the afc west. They will just do a little better than last year is all

  68. TheBigOldDog says: May 6, 2010 7:18 PM

    What in the world makes you think he wants another chance? LOL!
    He couldn’t be persuaded to take his career seriously when there was big money on the line, he certainly won’t be when he’s making the absolute minimum.

    Everyone got the 2007 Draft Wrong: The debate was who would go 1st in the in the 2007 –Brady Quinn or JeMarcus. Bottom line is they both failed. Although there are a few studs (AP, Joe Thomas, Patrick Willis), the top of the draft is filled with busts (Jemarcus, Jamaal Anderson, Ted Ginn, Justin Harrell) and tragedies (Gaines Adams).
    The sad thing with JeMarcus is that he seems comfortable with the waste of talent. If that is the case, then new scenery is not going to help. He could use a place where he can learn to become a “professional” from someone who leads by example (e.g., McNabb). That doesn’t always work — It didn’t work for Couch or Akili Smith with Favre in Green Bay.
    The comments suggest most want to see him fail rather than succeed — That’s too bad.

    Sounds like Florio didn’t get many reps in his Pop Warner days.
    Russell should end up as somebody’s third this season. He has played well at times, and he does have a magic arm, but his feet are slow and he’s nearly blind in the pocket.

    They don’t all get a second chance. Rex Grossman didn’t. And he is a good QB, could be great with the right coaching. He is a hard worker. Now, he’s stuck behind McNabb. Will probably never see the light of day.

    ————————————————-
    Your an idiot. Virtually everyone had Jimmy Clausen going in the first round this year. How did that work out. Fact is, that I knew then that he was an overrated QB. Yes, he had a strong arm. Couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat. And to be honest, every year that a QB goes first, the team that choose first usually is applauded for drafting a “Franchise QB”. So its not exactly like you are spouting off some unique piece of commentary there. And if you knew me 3 years ago, you would know I said that then, and have been laughing at the Raiders ever since. And you wouldn’t feel so foolish for believing 3 years ago that he was a franchise QB. I am an Auburn fan and watched many SEC games his last year at LSU. You don’t have to be a scout or work for a front office to know he wasn’t going to be good. But hey, he could throw the football a country mile, so everyone stood in line to juggle his nuts. Now for your mocking my comedy. Hey, their is a reason I am not a comedian… and that is because it is not my skill set. But it is still fun. Perhaps the same theory applies to you. If you feel that Russell was a “Franchise QB” 3 years ago, then maybe you have found something that you are not very good at, but still try anyway… Analyzing football.

    “The comments suggest most want to see him fail rather than succeed — That’s too bad.”
    Actually that’s wrong, people want him to succeed, BUT he doesnt try, if he will work hard and try to learn, then i wouldnt mind him in Washington (learning from McNabb), BUT will he work and learn?????

  88. theuncletodd says: May 6, 2010 9:05 PM

    Who woulda thought Kevin Kolb would be the “Star” of the 2007 QB draft class? So far, it’s probably been Kolb, Thigpen, and Matt Moore, who wasn’t even drafted.
    They have, what, a season’s worth of game experience between them?? The NFL Draft really is an inexact science…
    I can’t imagine the pure joy when Raider fans heard Russell was waived.

    I don’t think ANY NFL is dumb enough to bring this guy in. I believe he will end up the CFL or UFL next year.
    He will somehow have to prove himself to get another shot in the NFL.

    As a raider fan I commend this move! It’s too bad for Russell that he didn’t want to work hard at his craft because it has nothing to do with his physical tools.At some point I thought his pride would kick in and he would work to get better but he apparently has no pride.I don’t blame him entirely though because oakland is just a bad organization that nobody seems to be able to succeed with.With the exception of Gannon having 4 good years with the raiders they haven’t had a good qb since plunkett! One man not player is responsible for this mess and his name is Al Davis. Just look at the moves he has made over the years.Anyways to Russell good luck fat boy!!!

    The Crypt Keeper must have died and put someone else in charge.

    You forget to mention that JaJunk may have a big arm but he is football ” stupid” Eveyone piles on the,big,arm, no work ethic but forgets he does not have the intelligence to play in the NFL. Maybe as a tackle ot buffet tender ! The Raiders made a wise move for a change as they got rid of a lousy QB but also a guy who was getting to much attention and and took away from the fact the Raiders had a stellar draft and few food trades and should win 8-9 games this year

    At 6’6″ and over 300lb Russell’s big ass would make an excellent bench warmer for some team, if the price was right.
