JaMarcus Russell is making a comeback & this is why you should be rooting for him
Sometimes fans never get to see what's going on with the man whose jerseys they buy and in whom they place their trust.
It turns out that Russell was dealing with personal things that would send the vast majority of people into the same spiral he fell into.
You can see that all in the video below, and you absolutely should take a peek. In a matter of months he lost the men who meant the most to him in this world right before training camp, then lost his job (which was absolutely the right move at the time).
The good news is that football, which brings him the most joy in life, is likely in his future.
It was reported on Tuesday that there are multiple teams who are seriously looking at the quarterback, and it wouldn't be a terrible idea if the Raiders were one of them (then again, I'm also a sucker for a comeback kid).
Russell has worked very hard with the pounds melting off, and even losing 12 last month, and getting down to 265 lbs.
Seriously, if you are NOT a Russell fan, or if you just love sports because at their core, they are about people, you need to see this.
