To date, former Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell has not yet reciprocated the interest of the UFL’s Omaha Nighthawks.
But other former NFL players have. Plenty of them.
The Nighthawks have posted at their website an impressive roster of fallen stars who still may have some football left in them.
The list includes, among others, former Eagles guard Shawn Andrews, former Saints defensive end Charles Grant, former Cardinals defensive tackle Wendell Bryant, former Steelers and Panthers cornerback Ricardo Colclough, former Raiders receiver Ronald Curry, former Raiders running back Justin Fargas, former Packers and Vikings receiver Robert Ferguson, former Seahawks, Packers, and Texans running back Ahman Green, former first-round quarterback Patrick Ramsey, and former Raiders quarterback Andrew Walter.
Earlier this week, the Nighthawks apparently jumped the gun, posting various names on their roster before the players actually had agreed to terms. We’re in the process of confirming that the current roster is indeed legit, and not a mistake.
