When he was hired in 2006, GM Mike Tannenbaum vowed to look under every rock in an effort to procure talent. That apparently includes discarded boulders.
Sources say the Jets have checked under the JaMarcus Russell rock.
The Jets are interested in acquiring a veteran quarterback before training camp and, while sources maintain that free agent Mark Brunell remains the odds-on favorite, the team isn’t ignoring other options. And one player they’re monitoring is the former Oakland Raiders bust, who was cut recently after reportedly ballooning to 300 pounds, give or take a buffet.
This is just the type of news Mark Sanchez owners want to hear. Could you imagine having JaMarcus Russell as a QB handcuff?
