JaMarcus Russell Adds Mortgage Payments to the List of Things He Can’t Complete

Oakland Raiders cast-off JaMarcus Russell spent four years showing the NFL that $50 million can’t buy competent quarterbacking and a decent completion percentage. Now, by the looks of things, he’s determined to prove that an eight-figure signing bonus doesn’t ensure financial security or sound financial advice either.

According to the investigative humans at TMZ, “foreclosure proceedings have begun on the former #1 overall draft pick's house after he allegedly failed to pay $195,512.05 in mortgage payments.”

There are no details about Russell’s home, but if he’s like most professional athletes it’s probably a modest abode filled with reasonably priced automobiles.

Although the former Raider – who has garnered attention from competitive eating scouts – does have non-football career options, it’s unlikely that he’ll find too many multimillion dollar job postings on Monster.com with job duties that include “getting fat” and “making Al Davis sad.”

Hopefully the missed mortgage payments were just a clerical error and not the first sign of looming bankruptcy. Photo: Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images Sport/Getty Images
