    Raiders release JaMarcus Russell

    Raiders finally ended the 3-year relationship with Russell after throwin away $39 Million on 7 wins as a starter... Can't imagine this comes as a surprise or is upsetting to any Raider fans

    no team can make a player not be lazy if anyone watched that outside the lines about him old players said he was lazy and was a binge eater

    Mel Kiper knows all. To be fair though, I don't remember anybody questioning the pick at the time.

    This whole thing should be interesting come bargaining time with the NFLPA. The NFL is basically going to use Russell as the poster child for some kind of set in stone, enforced rookie salary system.

    This was a disaster from the beginning with the Raiders. How do you make the guy the #1 pick and not have him signed on time? We'll be asking this soon with the Rams if Bradford holds out too. Russell was just a bum from the moment the ink dried on his contract. Tons of physical talent but you need more than that.
