Former Raiders Quarterback JaMarcus Russell May Lose $2.4 Million Mansion

By Dan Parzych

For those that were wondering what former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell has been up to lately, the former No. 1 pick is in danger of losing his $2.4 million house, according to a report from Russell purchased the house back in 2007 after signing a lucrative six-year deal for $68 million that guaranteed $31.5 million.

The report indicates that Russell failed to pay $195,512.05 in mortgage payments and he has three months to pay up before the bank puts his house up for auction. This description seems to fit the profile of arguably the biggest bust in NFL history perfectly as Russell played just three disappointing seasons in Oakland.

Russell started just 25 games for the Raiders in his career, throwing for just 4,083 yards with 18 touchdowns and 25 touchdowns. He was released by the team last May.
