Jets interested in JaMarcus Russell?

The Jets have received positive reports on JaMarcus Russell, but don’t jump to conclusions here. Frankly, Russell in New York would be a disaster. There are many reasons why it wouldn’t work, but let’s keep it to one: He’s an all-time underachiever, and you don’t want those kinds of players messing with your chemistry. You also don't want him hanging around your young franchise quarterback, Mark Sanchez, who is the anti-JaMarcus.

But, at the same time, it’s a thin quarterback market and the Jets are getting their ducks in a row, just in case Brunell falls through. Something tells me they’d sooner stick with Kellen Clemens than hand the No. 2 job to Russell, but he’s worth mentioning because he’s a big name – and a big quarterback. Too big.
