JaMarcus Russell has dropped more weight as he eyes a return to the NFL. The former first round bust has dropped 50 pounds with the hopes that one team will give him a second chance.


When Russell began his NFL comeback he weighed 315 pounds but he is now down to 265.

While Russell losing weight is a great story it is worth reminding everyone that it takes more then weight loss to make it in the NFL.

It remains unclear exactly how much progress former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia has made with Russell.
