JaMarcus Russell apparently needed to be bribed with food to watch film during his NFL career.

Russell is arguably the most famous draft bust in NFL history after the then-Oakland Raiders took him first overall. He soon after flamed out in spectacular fashion. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

PFF tweeted out a video of his former teammate Bruce Gradkowski claiming he had to be bribed with bacon cheeseburgers from Wendy’s to watch film on Tuesdays.

Watch and listen to his hilarious comments below.

We might never see another draft bust like JaMarcus Russell ever again. He had all the physical tools necessary to be a star and he just couldn’t commit to football.

He was the first overall pick, a star coming out of LSU, and it all came crashing down before anybody even realized what had happened.

Again, Russell is a bust at an epic level when it comes to the NFL.

Imagine getting paid tens of millions of dollars to play a sport and being so damn lazy that you have to be bribed with food to watch film.

If that’s not a sign of a major issue, I don’t know what is.

Something tells me this won’t be the last story we hear about Russell. What an absolute joke of an NFL career.
