Ravens reportedly interested in JaMarcus Russell

We reported last night that free agent quarterback JaMarcus Russell will be working out for the Bears on Friday.

Accordng to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, there are three teams that are interested in Russell.  We already know one of them is the Bears and another one is the Baltimore Ravens.

A league source said at least three teams are interested in Russell–the Bears and the Ravens are two of them, I’m told. USA Today first reported the Ravens’ interest. I’ve also been told there is a third team–the old mystery team–and that team may be in the NFC West.

 

The Ravens’ interest, I’m told, is tepid. Profootballtalk.com reported there is no interest. So we’ll see.

Baltimore would make sense for Russell.  They’re a strong franchise that already has a great starting quarterback in Joe Flacco for Russell to learn from.  Not to mention they could use a better back up than Tyrod Taylor.

    JaMarcus Russell ? ?? Are you kidding me? I have seen this tall athletic gentleman play and HE is nowhere near what it takes to be a WINNER in this NFL league. I’m glad he lost weight but he is NOT A LEADER…..he makes too many mistakes…fumbles, interceptions. Stuff he should have worked out in his High School days or at the very least his college days.
    The Ravens— what the F heck are YOU thinking?
    And Tim Tebow sits–why don’t you give Tim a try?
    You’ll be blessed.

      Amen, bro. The two q.b.’s Tebow beat for starter—are still on the roster somewhere in the NFL. I don’t remember off the top of my head: Kyle Orton is with ___?__ and former Notre Dame qb Brady Quinn is with___?__. I’d look them up but I’m an old bald headed man gettin’ ready for beddy-bye: I NEVER used to talk baby-talky-walky but when I found out my ex wife hates it, I talky walky baby talky all the time-wimey now.
      Well, im gonna head off for bedsy wedsey now
      See ya all later ya dirty, stinky, potty, poo=poo, ca-ca,, na na , yuck yucks.
      P.S. Timbo Tebow is a WINNER. He could raise the level of play on ANY team with his strength, his leadership, his humility and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob…. AMEN>

      Let’s all pray for our troops safety and pray for Tebow to find a spot where the can use his talken instead of sitting him on the bench.
      NO JETS. GO TEBOW.
      and don’t get me started on a fellow USA alum: Mark “Sackchez” Sanchez = zero. He can back up Matt Leinhart if Matt can find a team.
      so there, goodbye, and SLAM (that was the door)
