Oakland Raiders Reach Agreement with Jamarcus Russell

ESPN is reporting that a deal between Jamarcus Russell and the Raiders has been reached in principal.

There is still considerable work to be done, however, in terms of drawing up the contract, and a source close to the negotiations said late Monday that the two sides could still be working "very late into the night and maybe into [Tuesday] morning" to craft the precise language of the deal. has learned that Russell is still not in the Bay Area and will not fly to Oakland until his representatives feel comfortable with all the details of the contract.
Russell should be on the practice field tomorrow in Oakland. I don't see Russell as an immediate threat to the Chiefs, but the LSU QB undoubtedly has a lot of potential. Might as well throw one more QB into that carousel they have going now in Oakland.

Silver and Black Pride will have the latest information.
