    JaMarcus Russell Anyone?

    I wouldn't mind if the Vikings took a chance on him!

    The guy is broken.

    The guy got paid and didn't work.

    That is difficult to overcome.

    He has nothing to prove. He has never tasted what it takes nor does he have any reason to taste it.

    Where would his motivation come from?

    I don't know what more to say. The front office and the coaches would have to ask all these questions and find some pretty compelling answers to take him on........ as a member of this team.

    Hell no. He is one of the biggest bust ever in the NFL. Ranks right up there with Ryan Leaf. No thanks, besides, we have Cassel now.

    Haha no I am not. I have just been watching the Videos that have been posted on Bleacher Report about his road back. I guess I wouldn't mind giving him a chance in camp but heck what do I know.

    If he had something the coaches could determine to be drive, a person could take a chance.

    Competitiveness is a characteristic the coaches see in practice daily. From Russell's actions, he hasn't demonstrated that from where we sit. Natural talent and drive are two things that are not teachable.

    Don't take the comments personally. Keep posting!

    Hell yes! I know it's a very unpopular opinion, but I'd love to bring him in. I think he was a stupid kid thrust into a crappy spot in Oakland with bad influences and awful coaches all around. Bring him in for a tryout and if he looks good give him a 1 year contract with little to no guaranteed money. He will take almost anything and he had the talent to be the #1 pick at one point, I don't think that's all gone. What would it hurt? I love these comeback stories and I love low risk high reward situations.

    That being said, there's no way in hell that they bring him in.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.
