You have to have done something before you can make a "come back". It also doesn't say what position he'll be going out for, because at 308# I think he would fit nicely on the line!
Lol as what, a nose tackle?
Meh. I don't think he's going to do crap, but who knows? Let's see what he can do. If he somehow fixes his weight, and his stupidity... you never know.
He should realize by now that is chances died a long time ago.
He went from 320 lbs to 308 lbs because he is attempting a comeback. lol How the hell does that happen? I've never been over 200 lbs in my life, and I'm just a regular joe. How does a former professional athlete let himself go like that?
He was 6'6" and 268 (iirc) when he was in the league. Not that far of a reach really.
Bet he's still faster than Matt Schaub!
He'd be faster then schaub if he weighed 400.
That's a whole lot of fixing to do and I don't think he can do it. Russell making a comeback tells me that he's run out of all the guaranteed money that he got from Oakland or close to it and he needs a paycheck. He'll probably hold a demonstration like Terrell Owens and no one will show up.
You can't fix stupid....
I suppose he could play tight end at that size. I don't know if he can catch, but he could be a good blocker and occasionally run a trick play where he throws a long bomb to a WR.
Young will get a job long before this fatty lol
i'll root for the kid...just don't think it's likely. Some people take things for granted until they no longer have them. a 308 lb qb though.....
If you are 320lbs, and working hard on a cardio programme, dedicating all your time to it, and have had access to top level nutritional scientists so know how to manage your diet....Then losing 12lbs over six weeks is not the best effort tbh.
Losing 51 pounds is a good sign that he has maybe matured some and is ready to take his career seriously.
Good for him. I think just about everyone deserves a second chance, and if he is truly reformed and matured, it could be a solid role model for kids without direction entering the league.
I'd rather read a story like this than the Pacman crapola and Hernandez murder.
To be a QB in the NFL is a one in a million kind of chance to begin with. To me, a second chance is not deserved, it's got to be earned. Kevin Kolb earned a second chance, Jon Kitna earned a second chance. Kurt Warner & Warren Moon earned second chances.
It's up to Jamarcus to prove he deserves a second chance. Not to me... but to some NFL coach. His road is a little harder than a guy like David Carr, or Chad Henne, but he did that to himself.
I do agree it's good to see & I'd rather see this than the wasted lives of guys like Pacman, & the like. But no, Jamarcus doesn't deserve crap.
