Default Does anyone believe Jamarcus Russell is only 260lbs?

After watching the game I thought their boy looked a little on the husky side of 260. So I sent a crack team of researchers to work on the Internet to investigate. Here are 3 photos as a means of comparison. YOU make the call!

Vonnie Holliday - 6'6" 285lbs - should be noticeably bigger than JR:



Tony Scheffler - 6'5" 255lbs - should be about the same size:



The man himself - 6'6" 260lbs?



And for Hogan, Jared Lorenzon, 6' 4" 285

Jared Lorenzen?

He was 288

Russell definitely gives him a run for his money

Added Jared Lorenzon for Hogan. He is 285 and two inches shorter, and honestly he does not look any broader than Russell.

One of the articles on Lorenzon called him "The Pilsbury Throwboy." (I lol'd)

They could run a sneaky wildcat by just moving him into a O-Lineman spot and snapping to the back.

I remember reading or hearing a story about the Hefty Lefty when he reported to his first rookie mini camp with the Giants. He walked into the locker room and all the offensive lineman came over and said, "You must be Chris Snee glad to have you on board." To which Jared replied "Sorry I'm not Chris Snee I'm Jared Lorenzen a QB." All the o-linemen burst out laughing.

Too bad he has now lost the title of Fattest QB to ever play in the NFL.

Muscle is denser than fat.

Obviously JaMarcus has a high body fat percentage. He could still be 260. It's just a flabby 260.

The guy has the accuracy of a shotgun at a hundred yards, but he can heave it a mile with the flick of a wrist. God help us if he ever develops any kind of touch and accuracy.

He is 6'6....no way he is 260....look at how thick his legs are.

He is easily over three bills.

I was watching the MN game with a Raider fan, and he commented how 'slimmer' JMR looked. I'd say he's come down from 310 last year to 3 even...
