Who says quarterbacks need to be in good shape, JaMarcus Russell may disagree. He feels that his offseason work will make him more nimble and help his athletic ability. However we have learned, via ProFootballTalk.com:
Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury-News reports that Russell weighed 271 pounds when he reported to the team’s voluntary offseason workouts this week.
Last year Russell was almost a sitting duck when he played, he may benefit from being “slight at foot”. When the Redskins went to Oakland, he gave up several sacks in relief.
