Bad advice for JaMarcus?

We're halfway through the NFL preseason and JaMarcus Russell remains unsigned.

At this rate, Russell's rookie season is just about gone.

Here's why: Even if he signs tomorrow, he's going to be so late getting into camp that he won't be on an even playing field in competing for the job.

Had he signed early he would have had an opportunity to play late in his rookie year in a similar fashion to former Vanderbilt star Jay Cutler. Now, Russell will likely hold a clipboard all season.

This isn't to say Russell made a bad decision in turning pro. It may be he's getting bad advice on a contract. Or maybe he's getting good advice and dealing with a bad team.
