JaMarcus Russell Joins Ryan Leaf ,Tim Couch and an All-Star Cast Of NFL Busts
This photo pretty much sums up his short pitiful career. Al Davis embarrassed himself, his organization and the Raider nation with this stalwart pick. A friend of mine rode home on a plane with this guy sitting next to him. He had just signed his contract. JaMarcus had so much gold around his neck, Fort Knox would have been jealous. All this guy talked about was what he was going to purchase. He said nothing about football. Can you say "priority."This guy had an arm lets give him some credit.Thats where it ends. Join me now as we take a trip down NFL Bust memory lane. These are mine, what are some of yours?
