JaMarcus Russell: Waking up

My thoughts haven't changed on the Chicago Bears' decision to work out quarterback JaMarcus Russell. There is no harm in a workout, but I'm not at all convinced the sideshow Russell would bring to training camp is the best thing for a team transitioning to a new head coach for the first time in a decade.

Regardless, I wanted to bring your attention to Tom Rinaldi's well-done piece on Russell's comeback attempt. You'll see he is working with former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia and can judge for yourself the sincerity of his interest in playing football again.
