JaMarcus Russell Looking Skinnier Than Ever (Photo)

JaMarcus Russell, the former No. 1 overall pick and one of the biggest busts in NFL history, has been attempting a comeback to the league and the latest photo of the rocket-armed slinger has us believing that he is taking this comeback seriously. For the first time since his high school photos, Russell actually looks skinny.

A tweet surfaced that shows a much lighter JaMarcus Russell:

Here is the photo, which really is remarkable considering his past size:

Compare that to this photo of Russell before his training:

How is that for an amazing before and after transformation?

NFL teams have reportedly had interest in Russell since he expressed his desire for a comeback and this image has to excite those teams who were considering giving him a shot. If Russell is truly dedicated to getting back in the game and making the most of a second chance, he would be worth a shot for a team that is in search of depth at the quarterback position.

It is still a long shot that we will see Russell on an NFL field again, but he is definitely working his hardest to get that chance.
