    Bummer. Just as he makes a comeback we switch from needing a fat run stuffing nose. Cowboys just can't catch a break

    Maybe this is what Jerry Jones has been holding out on, at 310 pounds, he can fill the void at Center.

    I would seriously give the man a shot.

    Don't think too many QBs could succeed playing in the land of the yellow tape aka West Oakland, and Yamarcus is no exception.

    He's got the rocket arm.

    Dez would love him...

    If he burned through 32 million that fast, he's not going to make enough in his comeback to last him through his next retirement.

    It makes sense with the popularity of the read option. I think it can work, except Russell couldn't run even when he was only 270 lbs, he is an inaccurate passer and he can't read defenses. Other than all that it has success written all over it.

    I still can't believe he was the #1 overall.

    That was a terrible draft to be taking a quarterback. There was no sense in taking any of them in the first round much less #1 overall. Then again, it was Al Davis.

    JaMarcus Russell
    Brady Quinn
    Kevin Kolb
    John Beck
    Drew Stanton
    Trent Edwards
    Isaiah Stanback(drafted to be a WR)
    Jeff Rowe
    Troy Smith
    Jordan Palmer
    Tyler Thigpen

    ..........Mike and Mike were talking about it this morning: he got up to 340 lbs and is DOWN to 309 lbs....he is showing Manti Te'o like intelligence in coming out and announcing this BEFORE getting in shape, which would be 245ish on his frame...what a tool

    Exactly... he is a great athlete but a terrible position player... he's also lazy and overweight...

    His comeback depends on a team giving him a chance... I wouldn't...

    Plus he is fond of Purple Drank...

    I'd like to get him into shape and see if he can play TE. He'd need to speed train as well. Does he have the intelligence to play in the NFL.

    I don't think he has the intelligence to play checkers.

    As to his "comeback" claim. You can only do so if someone wants you.

    I can't just decide to make my comeback in the NFL (or debut as it would be) simply because I proclaimed I was going to.

    I can't imagine anyone would want him. He's about 1 trip to the buffet away from a heart attack.

    Any team that takes him should have a gastric bypass written into his contract.

    Just tape a picture of a glazed ham off in the distance onto his visor so he's always chasing after it. I bet he'd break land speed records.
