The Jets Aren’t Interested in JaMarcus Russell Anymore

As of just a few days ago, the Jets were reportedly considering JaMarcus Russell as a backup to Mark Sanchez and had placed an exploratory phone call to his agent. And though there are any number of reasons that such a signing wouldn't have happened — his body of work with the Raiders, for example, or the ever-expanding size of his actual body — that courtship is over now. Russell was arrested yesterday for possession of codeine syrup (the main ingredient in Purple Drank), and according to Manish Mehta's source, the Jets are no longer interested in Russell's services.
