Former LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell has loss 50 pounds and at his new weight of 265 he is hoping for another chance at the NFL.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that there is now "significant" interest from more than one team, according to a source.

If Russell does not make it with an NFL team, according to Rapoport, he would be open to playing in the CFL.

Russell has hired well known agent Eugene Parker to help in his comeback attempt.

The Oakland Raiders made Russell the number one pick of the 2007 NFL Draft and cut him in 2010 after three disappointing years.

In his three years with the Raiders, Russell threw 18 touchdowns, 23 interceptions and had 25 fumbles.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
