RGIII's Contract May Be The Biggest Blunder In NFL History

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; JaMarcus Russell flat out hustled the NFL. While there is always personal responsibility first, JaMarcus went to a TRAINWRECK of an organization. I mean, would Brady be a Super Bowl champ if he went to the Lions? Very doubtful....

JaMarcus Russell flat out hustled the NFL.

While there is always personal responsibility first, JaMarcus went to a TRAINWRECK of an organization. I mean, would Brady be a Super Bowl champ if he went to the Lions? Very doubtful.

Probably not, but then you also gotta' figure the Lions wouldn't of been the trainwreck of an organization with Brady that Oakland was with Russell either, #shrug.

How close did we really come?

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said on May 8, 2010 that the time was not right for the Saints to consider signing Louisiana-native Russell, but added in that it's "newsworthy" when a high draft pick is released so soon, and stated that players like Russell often get a second chance in the NFL.[32] However, due in part to concerns about his work ethic, he has never played another down in an NFL game.[33]

Recently released (OAK) Trent Richardson is another one, 4yrs/$20mil(guaranteed) + $13mil signing bonus with the Browns in 2012. Not bad scratch if you can get it, .

Also consider RGIII's character.
Could the tarnish on Shanahan become a footnote rather than bullet point?

He's got good character, right? I always thought so but I don't see that many endearing posts about him around here so maybe I'm missing something? Does he got a rap sheet? .
