Ex-Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell was arrested in Alabama yesterday after being found in possession of codeine syrup.
It apparently isn't new news. Raiders beat writer Jerry McDonald commented on the event on Twitter by saying "Wish I had a dollar for every time I got an e-mail or a tip about Russell and prescription cough syrup..."
Russell had been linked with several teams in recent days, including the Jets, but his arrest may end up keeping him out for the 2010 season or even have the effect of ending his NFL career.

Thanks a lot, Dak Prescott. Now more people will think the fourth round is still a gold mine for quarterbacks, but the data says otherwise. The update to our quarterback draft study for 1994-2016 shows little has changed: finding a good QB is really hard.
