UFL still wants JaMarcus

If unwanted (except by the cops) quarterback JaMarcus Russell is looking for a hug right about now, there’s a football team in Nebraska still willing to give him one.

We’ve confirmed via two UFL sources that the Omaha Nighthawks remain interested in adding Russell to their roster for 2010.  As one source explained it, the league’s interest in Russell possibly has increased in the wake of the arrest for possession of a controlled substance; if, after all, the UFL is going to gain ground as a possible developmental league, it needs to attract players who hope to develop their skills for the highest level of the sport.

For more on the subject, we give you a couple of minutes from this week’s batch of PFTV.

    Just when it seemed things had gotten as bad as possible, Russell gets an offer to play winter ball up in Nebraska.

    Is it true the Nebraska team is trying to lure him with promises to replace the Gatoraid with “Purple Drank”?

    Of course they do. The new league needs all the eyeballs it can get.

    If the Omaha Nighthawks really want JaMarcus Russell, I hope that they are prepared to pay full value for him. By that, I mean a moldy, half-eaten tuna salad sandwich that still has at least a little bit of wilted lettuce on it.

    Does the UFL really think that a lethargic, doped up loser will automatically become a winner in their pathetic league?
    Besides if J-Russ goes and plays for the CFL he can legally obtain his beloved purple drank.
    Maybe not in the quantities that got him busted by the cops though…
