The Jets had made an exploratory call to JaMarcus Russell’s agent last week to gauge how he’s doing and the possibility in bringing him into camp. Then JaMarcus got arrested for possession of codeine syrup. Funny how something like that will make you lose interest in offering to pay a guy to perform athletic feats for you.
The Jets recently made an exploratory call to Russell’s agent after the former No. 1 overall pick was released by the Raiders. However, a league source told me last week that the chances of Russell signing with the Jets were less than 10 percent.
Not surprisingly, the Jets are no longer interested in the career underachiever, according to a source.
