JaMarcus Russell Headlines Former Raiders On UFL Roster

Former Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell has been listed as part of the UFL’s Omaha Nighthawks roster. This comes less than two weeks after Russell was caught with an illegal possession of “purple drank”.

↵

Russell still is interested in playing in the NFL and has not expressed interest in playing in the UFL. If he does find a team in the NFL, he won't play for the Nighthawks.

↵

Along with Russell are his former teammates QB Andrew Walter, WR Ronald Curry and RB Justin Fargas.

↵

Former 49er defensive end Chike Okeafor (played with team from 1999-2002) is also on the Nighthawks roster.

↵

Other notable former NFL players on the roster are RB Ahman Green, QB Patrick Ramsey and CB Anthony Dorsett.

↵

The UFL started their first season last year with only four teams. This season, the Nighthawks became the newest team in the league.

↵

This is a huge fall for Russell but it might be the wake up call he needs to get his focus back on to football. And he has a few friends already on the roster, so that might make his transition a little easier if he does decide to play in the UFL.
