FORMER RAIDERS QB JAMARCUS RUSSELL IS A FAN OF THE PURPLE DRANK
Former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell basically admitted in court Thursday that he had codeine syrup based “Purple Drank” in his house when he was arrested last month. However, he did find a buddy to take the fall for it.
Russell also told ESPN that he tested positive for codeine following the 2007 NFL Draft. Russell admits he would have tested positive for codeine before the draft but was holding out of training camp with the Raiders and therefore was not drug tested.
