JaMarcus Russell, making an improbable comeback attempt, said this week that he ideally will find a team that wants to groom him as a backup quarterback behind an established starter. One of Russell's mentors, former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia, targeted the Arizona Cardinals and Chicago Bears as ideal fits.

Russell will have to look elsewhere.

ESPN Chicago's Michael C. Wright wrote Wednesday that the Bears are not "AT ALL interested in J'Marcus Russell. Not even remotely." (You know it's serious when all caps break out.)

The Cardinals apparently also are emphatic in their lack of interest regarding the former Oakland Raiders signal-caller. XTRA Sports 910 in Arizona reported Wednesday that the Cardinals have "zero" interest, which is no surprise considering the team has quality backups in Drew Stanton and Brian Hoyer behind starter Carson Palmer.
