For­mer Oak­land Raiders quar­ter­back

Ja­Mar­cus Rus­sell has been charged with pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance — codeine syrup — af­ter be­ing ar­rested at his home in Alabama on Mon­day, au­thor­i­ties said.

The 24-year-old for­mer LSU star and the No. 1 draft choice in 2007 was ar­rested as part of an un­der­cover nar­cotics in­ves­ti­ga­tion, said Mo­bile County Sher­iff’s spokes­woman Lori Myles. She would not say what led to his ar­rest.

Rus­sell is con­sid­ered one of the NFL’s biggest draft busts and is cur­rently a free agent try­ing to find a taker.
