JaMarcus Russell does Vegas (again)
While some NFL quarterbacks spend their offseason working with their receivers (i.e. Donovan McNabb), others enjoy a more relaxing approach.
Put Raiders signal-caller JaMarcus Russell in the second category.
Amid reports that Oakland is making a push for McNabb, Russell was spotted in Las Vegas early Saturday morning where he checked out a Jay-Z concert and hit the craps tables, according to TMZ.com. (They’ve got a picture of the big man rolling dice, which you can check out HERE).
Russell appears to be a fan of Sin City, as reports surfaced back in January that the quarterback missed the Raiders’ final team meeting because he was busy hanging out in Vegas.
The good news for Raiders fans is that pool season just kicked off in Vegas, meaning Russell may have some extra motivation to slim down from the 290 pounds he is reportedly tipping the scales at.
