    JaMarcus Russell-QB- Raiders Mar. 18 - 3:46 pm et


    JaMarcus Russell reportedly weighed in at 271 pounds when he reported for workouts earlier this week.

    While 271 pounds doesn't sniff previous reports of Russell ballooning up to 300 pounds, it's still quite a bit heavier than his listed playing weight of 260. As usual, he's set the bar awfully low for his team's approval.

    I read reports that he had slimmed way down.

    271 is slimmed down? He really is Shamu.

    What is the deal with this guy? He holds out for a huge contract, finally gets it, and then does absolutely nothing after that but screw off and get fat.

    why is it his problem when the NFL is set up to pay big bucks to people who havent proven they are worth the contract?

    Why are rookies paid more than vets?

    Look deeper than the surface, you might find an ocean.

    Neither do i, but i cant fault the younger ones taking advantage of the older ones, someone should have put a stop to this way back, now the greed has grown to a whole new level of "taking advantage of the system"

    Maybe the raiders will make him a TE candidate.

    He weighed in a 265 for the Combine. Did people think he was going to get skinnier as he got older?

    what they meant to say is he showed up to weigh in with what appeared to be a new body tied to him.
