Unreal how some pro athletes piss it all away. The Oakland Raiders released former #1 pick overall, Jamarcus Russell. Arguably the biggest bust in NFL history. Watching him play, he really defined the point that not all college stars can make pro. But. That's not the worst part. Before he was released, he showed up at Raiders mini camp weighing in at 290 lbs. And reported weighing 300 just a few weeks prior. Wow. Yes, he is 6'6". But he is a quarterback. Not an offensive lineman. Although he should maybe try his hand at that now. His ideal QB weight is 260. So it seems it was the last straw for Oakland to make the decision. My only question is, why did it take you so long?
