George Tells NFL Network He Wants to be a Raider Again

Jeff George

He was once a Raider, and wants to be a Raider again.  Jeff George today on NFL Network’s NFL Total Access  declared that wanted another shot in the NFL. He analyzed the Raiders quarterback situation and said Jamarcus Russell needs a veteran quarterback to come in and help him learn the NFL game. After his comments analyst Terrell Davis asked, “It sounds like you’re campaigning?” George responded, “I am campaigning” and then continued to say again how Russell needs any veteran to sign with the Raiders. NFL Total Access Host Rich Eisen then asked, “Why do you think you’re not done, Jeff?”

George responded, “I can still play, I still have the drive and the adrenaline and I know that I can help the team out and lets just face it there’s not a lot of good quarterbacks out in the league right now, in my opinion?” George said out of the starting quarterbacks in the NFL 50% are good but the other half are young and could develop and that overall the NFL lacks veteran leadership at the quarterback  position.

Later in the show, George threw passes outside in the parking lot and inside the studio. He threw completions to the upper level of the parking garage and looked solid when throwing from longer distances. But he tied with Host Rich Eisen going 1 for 3 while trying to throw balls into a large garbage can that was set up inside the studio. All
in all he didn’t impressive at all, but he that wasn’t his selling point. He was stressing the fact that he can provide veteran leadership and help younger players develop.

George desperately wants another shot in the league and I don’t think he’ll mind if he doesn’t play he just wants to wear the uniform and a headset. Maybe he could help Jamarcus Russell be an NFL quarterback.
