JaMarcus Russell won't hold a pro day after all. Test Football Academy, which has been running Russell's attempt at an NFL comeback, said Monday that Russell instead plans to meet teams individually rather than hold a pro day. Apparently, that is what teams prefer. It's unclear which teams, if any, have agreed to host the former No. 1 overall pick of the Oakland Raiders for a workout. Russell reportedly has shed almost 30 pounds in his comeback attempt, but it will be much harder to shed his image as a lackadaisical worker with significant substance abuse problems. (Not to mention accuracy problems as a passer.) "More than a few teams" reportedly have kept an eye on Russell, but perhaps there was a concern from Russell's camp that no one would show up for a pro day.
