    He might challenge Amobi for a spot. Sign him for the vet minimum.

    Rookies should have to "earn" their salaries by proving it on the field before being awarded with these ridiculous contract amounts.

    Parcells likes tight ends that can block and push guys around, so sure

    Al Davis publicly declared it himself: He wanted JaMarcus Russell. Lane Kiffin wanted Calvin Johnson. Someone was right; someone wasn't.

    I think it would be awesome to have Russel in the Texans training camp, so long as he gets the minimum and has to make the 53 man roster to get his salary. I have a hard time believing he is much worse than Orlovsky and Booty. Let Kubiak turn him into a decent backup and if Schaub gets hurt they can trot him out there for kicks.

    I agree with that, but I'm also leaning toward Eric Winston's point, which is why should the players save the owners from themselves? The owners are the ones handing out ridiculous deals.

    As for Russell, one thing comforts me, and that's the fact that he's stupid enough to blow all the money he's been paid, so he'll be broke soon.

    Believe it. He is. He has just over 4000 yards in 2-1/4 seasons, 52% completion %, 18 TDs, 38 turnovers, and 70 sacks. And for having the strongest arm in recent memory, he has a 6 yard average on his passes.

    Those are Ryan Leaf numbers, except Leaf got slightly better as he progressed (slightly), while Russell got worse as he went along.

    Should be an interesting camp battle for the QB spot.

    Campbell, Boller, Frye, and Gradkowski.

    Leg up IMO goes to Campbell.

    Next stop: sitting by a pool watching girls walk by as he eats chicken wings, taters and gravy and milk shakes. He has millions and does not need to subject himself to sacks or mean old fans like you guys. He has feelings too, even if he is too fat to feel them.

    The guy has TONS of potential but a terrible attitude and work ethic... can't see Kubiak bringing him here. I trust Orlavsky much more to manage the game than Russell.
