JaMarcus Russell Comeback 2013: Ready to Be a Teammate and a Leader

JaMarcus Russell has come a long way in a short time. 

In the last two months, the former No. 1 overall pick has dropped nearly 40 pounds, regained some rhythm on the football field and, most of all, showed a renewed sense of purpose.

In our final episode chronicling his attempted comeback, we watch as the TEST Football Academy staff takes Russell through a simulated pro day, with former pro quarterback Jeff Garcia working as a personal quarterbacks coach. 

With the 2013 quarterback class perhaps one of the weakest in over a decade, is there a chance a team gives the 27-year-old Russell a prolonged look? He would no doubt jump at any situation that saw him competing in an NFL camp this summer full of his new-found determination that was clearly lacking when he was first in the league. 

What do you think? Is he, as he tells B/R toward the end of our final installment, really ready to be a teammate and leader?
