Here are some highlights of a recent Outside the Lines episode focusing on Russell, compiled by the San Francisco Chronicle and clip from ESPN.
1. Dominic Rhodes said Russell would often fall asleep in meetings: "Is that the guy that's going to lead us? . . . I don't think he has that mindset to be great."
2. An anonymous ex-coach said Russell was a "binge eater."
3. Former Raider offensive lineman Jeremy Newberry said Russell was way out of shape and "more comfortable with a role as a backup."
4. Former Raiders quarterback Andrew Walter blamed the Raiders some: "If he was drafted by somebody else, it could be completely different," Walter said.
Other than that, the report was fairly positive.
interesting quote from Walter, how much of it is the Raiders and how much of it is Russell?
