What is “purple drank”?
OK, what is purple drank?
Everybody's saying it these days!
He has plenty of ca$h..however, California is one of a handful of states ( I believe it’s 9) that doesn’t allow lenders to seek recourse against other assets after a foreclosure, if there is still a deficiency. I figure that he bought at the top of the market..probably put nothing down...because he got the loan based upon his expected NFL signing bonus..now it’s 30-40% underwater (around a million $$)..so he’s doing the smart thing in walking away..
Recuperate? Is it sick?
I don't know what guide stick is being applied here, to say he wishes a "return to greatness".
That would imply some greatness, in the first place.
The problem with Russell, is the fact that his ability at the collegiate level just didn't transfer to the professional level, in spite of being babied and pampered by Lane Kiffin.
When Tom Cable wouldn't kiss his ass, he went to hell, getting fat, lazy and stupid.
Rumor has it that Russell is close to 300 lbs.
Not exactly your ideal QB weight at the pro level.
Maybe that Purple Drank has more calories than he figured.
I will not sip it with a skank.
Oh, sorry. That should be JaWho?
Ol’ JaMarcus isn’t the brightest bulb in the chandelier...
The NFL wants a structured rookie salary cap to prevent these kinds of contracts, although it's obviously the Raiders fault that they placed a bet on a bad risk. On the back side, though, a structured rookie salary cap would dampen all NFL salaries. There's already a tendency to dump an older player and go with a younger guy. If the owners can sign rookies at a lower salary hit and the players can't negotiate until their first contract is out, only a few players will get offered a second contract unless they're willing to work on the cheap. This is where the anti-trust exemption helps the NFL tremendously. They have a cartel which allows them to collude to keep salaries low by refusing to hire players from another team.
On to JaMarcus, when a #1 pick can't get work as a backup project, he's toxic. Russell's only chance at a stable financial life is gone. He could easily end up like Joe Gillam, the Steelers QB that ended up being a street bum.
One of the biggest POS the NFL has produced imho. . .
