Default JaMarcus Russell says he will work for free

Be it getting water or running the scout team.

Would you ever take any athletically gifted phenom but mental midget up on an offer like this?

I liken this, only to an extent, to Knowshon. Everyone knew he was talented but he was just an idiot and had off field issues then was a day away from being cut. Some light switch went off and he took the opportunity on the scout team to work his way back up.

Sure why not? If by some chance he actually got his act together he might be a storybook success and there's nothing to lose. That said, I highly doubt the CBA permits that, or that his skills would magically return after being gone so long. He'd be better off getting a regular job now.

No thanks to the Pillsbury Throwboy and paying him in "unlimited Little Debbies."

Lots of people change. Mo Clorett did. I doubt he could make it back after this long but stranger things have happened. Look at the crap QB's people are falling all over themselves trying to get in this draft and you gotta think somebody might be desperate enough to give him one last shot. He never beat up a woman like Manziel or knocked the **** out of his kid like Pederson. His sin was being a lazy fat guy so see if he's lost weight and let him get a chance any UDFA might get, nothing to lose.

Point is not just JaMarcus but others that come around. Sure sound like Nkemdiche runs the strong possibility of belonging in this category some day. Also something like the scout team as he proposes.

Like that comedian George Wallace responded when a whore came up to him in Vegas and said, "I'll do anything you want for five hundred bucks..."

Point taken, but if this whole process ends with us talking ourselves into JaMarcus Russell then we are in serious trouble.

Amazingly, 2 of his 7 wins were against the Broncos.

Crack cocaine is a helluva drug. Next he'll be giving out handies in the parking lot after OTA's.

He knows there are minimum salaries so why not say he'll play for free. It makes it sound like he'd play for the love of the game instead of saying "Please give me a chance, I'm broke". Unfortunately for him, everybody will see through him.

He wants it so bad! Not bad enough to go to the CFL or Arena league though... Sort of like Tebow won't either...
