The Bears may not be the only team interested in quarterback JaMarcus Russell, the first overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft.  But if another team is interested in Russell, we’re told it’s not the Ravens.

That’s contrary to reports from both Mike Garafolo of USA Today and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.  But that’s what we’re told, from a source we trust.  (As opposed to the sources that we, you know, don’t trust.)

Russell has lost 50 pounds in his quest to return to the NFL.  But interest has been tepid, at best.

If we’re wrong, the consolation will be that the Ravens’ color scheme dovetails quite nicely with one of his favorite beverages.  Allegedly.
