Oakland Raiders Draft Bust JaMarcus Russell Cancels Pro Day


Keep laughing, Raiders fans.

Former No. 1 overall draft pick and big-time QB bust JaMarcus Russell canceled his pro day on Wednesday, according to reports. The former Raiders quarterback is attempting a comeback in the NFL, and was last reported to have lost 27 pounds since starting a workout program.

Russell was slated to throw to All-Pro wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and showcase that he still has the ability to play in the pros, but it looks like something went wrong and he will not have that chance.

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.
