Last season the Tim Tebow signing turned into a complete disaster for the Jets.
But that does not appear to be stopping the Jets from going after another disaster in the making at QB, as according to The Newark Star-Ledger, the team has discussed signing former Raiders starter JaMarcus Russell.
Yes, the same Russell who was reported to be over 300 pounds, and possibly the biggest first-round, first overall pick bust the NFL has ever seen.
The Star-Ledger report claimed that the Jets front office has had very exploratory, informal discussions about Russell
New GM John Idzik confirmed Monday that Mark Sanchez will have competition for the Jets QB job – but Russell? What a joke that would be, and yet another media circus in the making.
