As the first overall pick in the 2007 draft tries to work his way back into the NFL (by first working his way back into the shape of something other than a pear), the Cardinals and Bears reportedly are interested.
The Cardinals reportedly aren’t.
Darren Urban of the team’s official website reports that the Cardinals aren’t interested in Russell. Specifically, Urban opts for the inherently dismissive “nope” when responding to a question as to whether the Cardinals have interest.
The Cardinals recently traded for Carson Palmer, signed Drew Stanton, and kept Brian Hoyer via a restricted free agency tender offer.
Also, Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that he “strongly” believes the Bears don’t have any “real interest” in Russell.
So maybe no one is interested in Russell. At least he’ll end up being in the shape of something other than a pear.
