Soooo remember last week when we told you that JaMarcus Russell is attempting to make an NFL comeback?! Oh you didn’t stop laughing yet?! Well Jets fans, this could become a reality for you. You’re not surprised are you?! Report after the jump…
According to Evan Silva at PFT:
The Jets need a quarterback. Russell was once a quarterback. And the Jets have explored the possibility of adding Russell to their offseason roster.
Per Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Jets had “some very exploratory, informal discussions” about the ex-Oakland Raider. The discussions took place after the firing of G.M. Mike Tannenbaum, and among members of the organization that still have their jobs.
It doesn’t sound like a signing is imminent, but Russell should come cheap, likely on a minimum-salary deal as he attempts to turn his life and football career around.
