JaMarcus Russell to Workout for Ravens


UPDATE: Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun tweeted Monday afternoon there is n workout scheduled at this time, but that things can always change.


ESPN’s Ed Werder reports via Twitter that free agent quarterback JaMarcus Russell is sharing that he has an upcoming tryout with the Baltimore Ravens.

The former No. 1 overall draft pick worked out most recently for the Chicago Bears last Friday.

Russell, 27, hasn’t played an NFL down since being released by the Oakland Raiders.

After numerous off-the-field incidents involving substance use, he was let go by the Raiders in 2009 after a disappointing three seasons. He is now attempting to make a comeback tour and receive a second chance in the league.
