Jamarcus Russell net worth and salary: Jamarcus Russell is a former American professional football player who has a net worth of $2 million. In 2007 Jamarcus Russell signed a 6 year, $68 million contract with the Oakland Raiders, of which $32 million was guaranteed. His career in the NFL wound up being very short lived. He was released by the Raiders in 2010. Russell remains a free agent and his future in the NFL is unlikely. Russell began his path to a career in football as a child, playing in high school before being signed to Louisiana State University in 2003. By the 2005 season, Russell was the starting quarterback for LSU. From there, Russell was a first round draft pick by the Oakland Raiders in the 2007 NFL Draft. His career got off to an inauspicious start when Russell held out during training camp due to contract negotiations. He made his first professional football appearance on December 2, 2007 when he came in during the second quarter against the Denver Broncos. He completed 4 out of 7 passes for a total gain of 56 yards. From there, Russell eventually became the starter for the Raiders in 2009. After the 2009 season, Russell reportedly arrived at the 2010 training camp very overweight, at 290 pounds. Since being released from the Raiders due to this and other problems, it's not known where he will go next, or if he will even continue to have a career in professional football. Russell is considered one of the biggest busts in NFL history.
