Breaking News:

JaMarcus Russell cancels pro day workout

The SportsXchange

JaMarcus Russell's comeback attempt was supposed to include a pro day on Wednesday so he could show a group of NFL teams what he could do.

However, multiple media outlets reported that Russell's pro day has been canceled.

Test Football Academy, which has been organizing Russell's attempt to get back into the NFL, told NFL.com that Russell will meet with interested teams individually rather than hold a pro day.

It was not revealed which teams, if any, are interested in meeting with Russell, who last played in the NFL in 2009, when he started nine games at quarterback for the Oakland Raiders.

The original plan was for Russell, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, to throw to several receivers, including Larry Fitzgerald, in front of scouts from multiple NFL teams.

Last week, Russell said he had lost 27 pounds and weighed 288 pounds.

He is training at Test Football Academy in San Diego with former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia.
