Remember all of the hype surrounding JaMarcus Russell and his "big return" to the NFL before the season? He lost all that weight, was practicing with elite QB coaches and even had cameras following him every step of the way to document the whole thing.
Well, it's week 12 of the NFL season and Russell still doesn't have a job. So how does he cope with it? Well, he's been eating -- a lot. And what about his rigorous training program? JaMarcus does most of that at Krispy Kreme now.
According to CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman, Russell was spotted at an LSU-area hotel looking bigger than ever. It sounds like he might've just thrown in the towel with this report.

What a shame. It seemed like Russell finally had that fire and passion you would like from a number one overall pick, but at 28 years old, it doesn't look like he'll be making that comeback anymore. He'll just have to go down as one of the biggest busts in NFL Draft history.
