    You can't be serious. Worst #1 pick ever possibly.

    Ah man! 6'5", 265. Quick first step and skill at creating turnovers. Lets sign him as an outside linebacker!

    Convert him to a tight end!

    Oh, wait. Never mind. Wrong QB, too late.

    That's a great shame.

    Having JaMarcus on the Raiders was the best chance the Patriots had at getting a top five pick, or as Bill would call it, seven second rounders. There was always the chance that someone would get injured and he would play.

    Ryan Leaf just popped the cork on a long-awaited bottle of champagne.

    No harm with inviting him to camp, or trying him out. I think he sucks, but maybe BB, TB, and the organization can salvage his career. I doubt it, but if it's free, with no risk, why not.

    BTW, I agree with that other poster. Worst 1st overall pick in history. I remember wondering what it was people saw in him.

    Re: JaMarcus Russell (QB) cut......any interest?

    It's not that Belichick can improve him, or Brady. The kid has apparently zero desire to play, hes got his payday, and that's good enough for him despite his tremendous potential with his talent. With the way he threw it if you could have taught him some footwork and ability to play in a pro offense, he could've been scary good.

    But even with his talent, I wouldn't want him near our franchise, he doesn't represent what the Patriots stand for.

    Oh man it would be just so funny if we signed him up and he won the no.2 berth and the Raiders have a horrible year and in 2016 the Patriots win the Superbowl with all-pro and probowl QB JaMarcus Russell and the all-pro and probowl 1st round pick from 2011

    Re: JaMarcus Russell (QB) cut......any interest?

    Depending on how long he's out on the market and how our QBs do injury wise during camp, I wouldn't rule it out.

    Any team that has room on their roster for a 3rd string developmental QB would likely love to have him. Keep in mind he's only 24 and has never been with a "real" NFL organization.

    He's certainly not going to command a big bonus. Everyone knows that he at least HAD tremendous potential 3 years ago...
    There's no doubt in my mind that SOME team will sign him... if they look at him as a project and have room for that on the roster he's a low risk high reward prospect.

    Although I think he'd be kept out of the limelight for a season, sitting on the bench, some team could even showcase him in meaningless preseason games in the hopes that he plays OK and a team in need of a QB might give up a draft pick for him.

    He wouldn't be the first Raiders Reclamation Project that Belichick has turned around.

    No way...the Head Landscaper and Excrement Removal Engineer have both been here at Foxboro for many years, are under long term contract, and are well liked by everyone. They aren't going anywhere. I have heard that there are some positions open in the "in stadium" vending needs.....but with his inability to remember audible lines, and his very deep voice....I could see tremendous difficulties in his ability to deliver the following mantra: "get your peeeeaannuuttss heeeeyahhhh".....just don't see any future for him here....
