Will the fans get some money back?

In my opinion? They drafted him, the coach let him goff off and not be serious about the game, and then they let him go. Get your money back while he’s still a Raider; take some notes from Alex Smith, mmkay?

The Oakland Raiders have filed a grievance against former quarterback JaMarcus Russell seeking repayment of $9.55 million, the team confirmed Thursday. The grievance is based on the contention by the Raiders that the contract was changed at one point during Russell’s three-year stint with the organization and that he’s not allowed to keep all of the money he had collected prior to his May 7 release. Russell, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft, was guaranteed $32 million as part of a six-year contract reportedly worth $68 million.

This suit will focus on his work ethic and insubordination (not reading his play book, etc). He gained massive weight during last year’s off-season and was in terrible football shape for most of the year.
