CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats Own Rights To JaMarcus Russell

JaMarcus Russell's chances of playing in the NFL in 2010 are seemingly non-existent after being arrested for possession of a controlled substance. The only team that reportedly showed any interest was the Jets and it's been confirmed they're out of the running by now.

So what's next for Russell?

If he wants to play football again, it seems that the CFL might be the only option.

Currently, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats own his rights so if he does want to play, that's where he'd go.

Russell's camp previously refuted rumors that he was considering the UFL. It's unclear if that's changed after he's been busted for reportedly sipping purple drank.
