Jets say they have no interest in Russell

The New York Jets apparently are like the other 31 teams in the NFL after all.

After a report surfaced this morning that the Jets had held some exploratory talks of bringing in former No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell as potential competition at quarterback for Mark Sanchez, the Jets have said there is no truth to that. Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger originally reported the interest in Russell, and then back tracked.

Russell, who washed out with the Oakland Raiders due to being out of shape and uncommitted, has said he would like an opportunity to perhaps revive his football career. But that appears a long shot.

As for the Jets, Ryan Leaf and Akili Smith might be available.
