AL DAVIS REALLY NEEDS TO GO AWAY

JAMARCUS RUSSELL

All week there have been stories that the Oakland Raiders were going to cut former number one pick/quarterback bust JaMarcus Russell. The rotund Russell was the first overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft but has been a miserable failure for the Raiders. For the first time ever, Russell has started to put up big numbers. Unfortunately, they’re on a scale.

With the recent acquisition of Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell, and the signing of Carrie Prejean  boytoy Kyle Boller to go along with incumbent Raiders starter Bruce Gradkowski, it seemed inevitable that Russell was toast. The Raiders would also save $6.45 million (to offset the $40 million they’ve already pissed away on Russell) by cutting him NOW.

However, releasing Russell would require one thing-for Raiders owner Al Davis to admit he was wrong. It now appears that may not happen. Fanhouse.com reports that Raiders minicamp begins tomorrow and the club still doesn’t know if they’re cutting Russell. Actually, make that DAVIS hasn’t let anyone know if he’s cutting Russell.

Apparently, Davis isn’t quite ready to bounce Russell and admit that he made such a disatrous draft pick. Whether or not Davis faces reality and cuts his losses with Russell now or later, there are already articles speculating if Russell was the WORST draft pick in NFL history. That’s right, worse than Ryan Leaf.

Ouch!
