The Shanahan-McNabb feud has gone to a new level.
Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston reports that JaMarcus Russell, the first overall pick in the 2007 draft, will meet with the Redskins.
The move comes during the Redskins’ bye week, two days after starting quarterback Donovan McNabb was yanked during crunch time of a loss to the lowly Lions.
The Redskins are the first team to consider Russell since he was cut by the Raiders earlier this year. The fact that the Raiders — the franchise Shanahan surely despises unlike no other — swung and missed on Russell likely makes him inclined to try to reclaim one of the biggest draft busts of all time.
Russell learned last week that he would not be indicted on charges related to possession of codeine. He has been working out in Houston in the hopes of trying to get back to the NFL.
