Report: JaMarcus Russell to Throw to Larry Fitzgerald During His Pro Day

JaMarcus Russell, the biggest draft bust in Raider history, is planning a return to the NFL.

He is currently training at TEST Football Academy in San Diego with former 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia to lose weight and re-gain the skills that he once had at LSU.

Russell will have a pro day on April 10, where he will reportedly throw to All-Pro wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald as well as former Buccaneer receiver Michael Clayton.

The former No. 1 overall pick in 2007 was downright awful in his two seasons as the Raiders starting quarterback.

In 2009, he had a woeful quarterback rating of 50.0 and threw three touchdowns in 12 games as opposed to 11 interceptions and nine fumbles.

The Raiders released Russell following that season, and he has been out of the league since. He last tried out for the Dolphins and Redskins in 2010, but could not land a spot on the roster.
