Comeback 2013: JaMarcus Russell’s Road Back to the NFL [Trailer]

How do you come back from being one of the biggest draft busts in NFL history? That is what we’re going to find out as BleacherReport follows JaMarcus Russell as this former Sugar Bowl MVP and first overall pick of the Oakland Raiders in 2007 tries to make a comeback into the NFL. 

They will be there to chronicle every step in the process, from now through April, when Russell plans on holding a pro day-style workout for NFL teams. His plans include working at the TEST Football Academy, being tutored by former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia on technique and getting help from a bevy of other former NFL players, trainers and coaches.

While many observers scoff at the notion of a comeback for a quarterback who reportedly still tips the scales at over 300 pounds, the former LSU star is determined to make NFL general managers and talent evaluators give him one last look.
