Could JaMarcus Russell be latest project for Bengals?

The Bengals have a history — a still-growing history — of giving players second chances. So maybe it shouldn’t have been all that surprising Tuesday when speculation begin filtering into the NFL newsroom that recently released QB JaMarcus Russell could be Cincinnati-bound.

It started with this Tweet from the omnipresent Chad Ochocinco. Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer followed with his Tweet relaying a “no comment” from Russell’s agent, Ethan Lock.

So, now the speculation is spinning full speed, just a few hours after the Bengals introduced their latest project, Adam Jones, to the media.  

As we noted last week, it seems to be a certainty that Russell will surface somewhere, and if the Bengals put in a call, that wouldn’t be a surprise. Chatting with Warren Sapp a few minutes ago, I know he likes the 49ers (imagine that) as a destination for the former Raiders QB.

Anyways, stay tuned.
