NFL star JaMarcus Russell's home may go into foreclosure.
Former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell's on-field struggles may be the least of his worries if a report from TMZ.com
According to the celebrity news website, Russell is in danger of losing the $2.4 million home he purchased in 2007 after signing with the Raiders because he is delinquent on several mortgage payments.
The website says he has allegedly failed to pay more than $195,512 and that if he doesn't come up the amount owed within the next three months, his home will be put on the auction block for potential homeowners moving to the Oakland area. According to the California Association of Realtors, pending sales in the state increased 14 percent in January.
Russell was the first overall pick in 2007, drafted out of Louisiana State University by Oakland, but his play has been far from elite since entering the NFL. With him as a starter, the Raiders had a 7-18 record. In the 31 games he played, Russell threw five more interceptions than he had touchdown passes - 23 and 18, respectively - and completed 52 percent of his throws.
