    What did Gary Russell do? I thought he wasn't brought back simply because he wasn't all that good. It was Cedric Wilson who was dumped after multiple off-the-field incidents.

    I believe he was involved in a drug bust.

    Gary Russell Released Due To Marijuana Bust In Columbus?

    Steel City Insider is reporting that recently released running back Gary Russell may not have been a salary cap dump after all. The site is reporting that a house in Columbus, Ohio where Russell was staying was part of a drug bust where marijuana was found. This is still a developing story and since then Russell has been signed by the Bengals, which all makes perfect sense now. Stay tuned as more of this story may develop.
