Smart move by the bears. A lot of upside to trying him out. Not much down side.

Are they really that desperate? Maybe he'll play a different position

Why a different position? The problem we had was not his skill set. It was his commitment. His heart. He was more interested in stardom than football. He has a cannon. Garcia worked with him for three months this year. In that time he lost 40lbs and Garcia said he was very committed. It sucks for us, that he is just now seeing the light. But the Bears are smart taking a look. He seems to have the tools, just needed a kick in the head.

Agreed, but crazier things have happened. And I am sure if bears did pick him up It would be 3rd string maybe back up down the road.

He ruined his reputation...Al Davis stupidly gave him 38 million and JBust stupidly blew it. It's obvious he doesn't want a real job. What was his college major anyways? Did he even graduate?

He's about as big as an average defensive end..,maybe LB or TE or FB. Either way I just think he's a lazy loaf & have no use for him.

you know what lbf, you better hope you guys pick up jamarcus russell while you can. make first offer and hire him before the price goes up and other teams sign him. jamarcus russell is a coulda woulda shoulda (qb). so, no risk and possible gain there. if it does not work out, you won't lose much and it can also warn the rest of the nfl teams "again" about russell. you have mark trestman there and he should be pretty good with russell. take the risk!
us? hell nah! good luck lbf, TAKE THE RISK!
