QB JaMarcus Russell will 'play for free'

Former LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell says he wants to make a comeback in the NFL, six years after being released by the Raiders.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated Films, Russell said he would do anything to get another chance, including working for free.



"I'll be the waterboy an work my way onto the scout team. It doesn't matter. I'll play for free."

Last year, Russell wrote to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in hopes of getting another chance at the league.

"I am willing to lead the scout team for free for one year just to get experience in your system, he wrote "After that time, if you see fit to allow me to stay with the Cowboys organization, I would be eternally grateful."

When he tried his last comeback attempt I was actually rooting for him but now I truly Believe that JaMarcus Walrussell is done.

Re: QB JaMarcus Russell will 'play for free'

After a while, you have to earn a shot at something. Not just SAY you want it. If he was in shape, I'd let him be my 4th QB in camp. It's on everyone to make it themselves first. He made some horrible choices and it cost him. See Johnny football. But, going to the train wreck that was the Raiders, was a nearly impossible task for anyone. Imagine if he could have sat a year or two behind Brees or Brady. Daniel had less skills. Got paid. Cassel got paid.
