No I’m not drunk, hear me out. If we sign Russel it will be the first time in history that 3- former 1st overall pick QBs are on the same team!! Wouldn’t that be cool? Plus we could say “our 3rd string QB could out eat your 3rd string QB.”
He would also be the only QB in history that could play on the O-Line, and be a Wild Cat option. Think about it, he could snap the ball to Smith, once the DT rushes by him, Smith could flick the ball up to Russel, who could then throw it down field. No one would see that coming.
Or we could put him as a DE and sign him to an incentive rich deal. It would go something like this “For every sack you get we will give you a Double Cheese Burger. For every interception you will get a Big Mac. And if you get Defensive Player of the Year we will build you your own Franchise!!” He would be stupid to turn that down.
What do you think?
