Default ESPN: Jets want Jamarcus Russell to mentor Sanchez

Sources tell ESPNNewYork.com that the Jets have checked on JaMarcus Russell, and they have cursory interest in the former Oakland Raiders bust who was cut recently after reportedly ballooning to 300 pounds.

The Jets are looking to acquire a veteran quarterback before training camp and, while league sources maintain that free agent Mark Brunell remains the odds-on favorite, Tannenbaum isn't ignoring other options. Russell, the No. 1 overall pick in 2007, is training in Arizona, trying to get in shape. Sources say the Arizona Cardinals or the Minnesota Vikings are the most likely landing spot for Russell, but the Jets have inquired by phone and received positive reports.

The Jets wouldn't be handcuffed by the NFL's "Final Eight" rules if they decide to sign Russell; that's because he was released by another team. To sign Brunell, an unrestricted free agent, the Jets would have to wait until late July, when the restrictions are lifted.

I hope he signs somewhere. There have been a lot of rumors of him joining the Omaha Nighthawks. I have season tickets to the Nighthawks and really don't want to see this happen. I doubt he could be good, even in this crap league.

So they want Russell to teach Sanchez how to be lazy and unmotivated.... and how to blimp up to the weight range of a typical DT?

I don't know, but there are in AZ, so I am sure all that training is really paying off when he hits the Golden Coral to carbo load.

JaMarcus will be in shape just to get signed. He just wants money. Now that he's out of a job he has no choice. His main goal in the NFL isn't to play. It's to get paid to sit on the sideline as a backup.

I'd hate to see JaMucus within a subway ride to Nathan's Famous.

Yep, working on putting a nice spiral on a beefy bean burito.
