NFL | JaMarcus Russell working on losing weight

Unrestricted free-agent QB JaMarcus Russell (Raiders) has gone to Arizona to working on losing weight before looking to sign with a team, sources told Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole. Russell currently weighs more than 300 pounds and is looking to lose at least 25 pounds before trying to sign. Russell has also decided not to do interviews with anyone at this time. Russell is expected to work on improving his mechanics that have been a struggle the last few seasons. "It's so bad that his mechanics are even completely screwed up," a source close to Russell said. "There's stuff they go over in high school that he hasn't worked on the past three years."
