Update: Stop the presses! ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday afternoon that JaMarcus Russell has not yet been cut, and that the plan is for him to attend this weekend's mini-camp. Doesn't mean he'll still be around by the start of the season, but it gives us more time to ponder his next move.
In the Tuesday addendum to his Monday Morning QB column this week, Peter King of Sports Illustrated speculated on where JaMarcus Russell might land (look out below!) if theOakland Raiders do, in fact, cut him loose, which could be done by this weekend, per ESPN's John Clayton. A reader suggested the Washington Redskins (maybe to play on the O-line, as Rick Maese suggested), but King mentioned the Philadelphia Eagles.
On Monday, Aaron Wilson of National Football Post passed along word from a source that JaMarcus has "beefed up to 300 pounds." Beefcake! Sticking with the humorous idea of Russell switching to OL given his new physique, Jason Whitlock joked that the Chiefs "passed on OT at top of the draft n favor of Eric Berry becuz Pioli knew JaMarcus Russell would b available." Given Russell's struggles at the professional level, it's hard to get a read on what team would be the best fit at this point.
