JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

Anyone have any idea how much money he's asking for? If Culppeper comes out and rips it up, do you guys think Russell then becomes trade bait?

He'd better pretty darn good for all the money he's asking for....whatever that is?

Re: JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

I don't remember exactly but I think it was something like $65-70 million with a $30 million signing bonus. I think the Raiders stopped at $60 million. I don't remember the years or if those are the exact numbers but somewhere in that ballpark sounds about right.

Russell could be the 2nd coming of Montana, but no way in hell is he worth 30 mil up front...or 60 million overall as a goddamn rookie. Whatever he's smoking, I want some...

Re: JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

I thought the contract was stuck on a clause saying that the team can recoup X amount if he does anything of the field.

Re: JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

John Clayton reported last night that the differences were really just in guaranteed money, and he thinks at best there might be a deal sometime in September.

I think dont understand where a player gets off thinking they should get huge amounts of guaranteed money. Maybe there should be a clause for a decent lump sum if you get seriously injured, but what if you're a bust

Re: JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

I hope to god Al Davis is brave enough to not pay the kind of money the Russell camp is asking for. I'm all for making as much money as you can but these contracts are really getting insane, especially for people who've never played a down in the pros.

Yes, I'm cheering for Al.

Re: JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

Now Russell is being stupid. And the Raiders are stupid too. One of the great things about having the number 1 pick is being able to negoiate with players prior to the pick. they didnt and now they fucked up by not doing that.

I never thought in a million years I'd be rooting for Dante Culpepper to be the second coming of Dan Marino.

Re: JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

It's unlikely that he would have had much playing time anyway, but this is absurd.

If I'm a Raider fan, I boo his ass out of the stadium when he finally takes the field. If Culpepper pans out, Al looks like a genius.

Re: JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

Give a final offer and if he dont sign it he wont get paid. One of these days he will need the money and sign the deal.

LOL, what made you say Montana? Russell has no attributes that even remotely resemble Montana.

I think he was just using Montana as an example of a great quarterback that Russell wants to be like someday. Either way it's ridiculous how much money Russell wants, I'm rooting for Al and the Raiders on this one. Put a final offer on the table and if he doesn't take it then whatever.

So what happens if they can't come to terms?
We've never seen this before, so does this mean he becomes a FA? Does anyone know?

Re: JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

We've never seen this before, but it's happened in the NFL in the past. Bo Jackson was another #1 pick that never got signed, and he entered the NFL Draft the next year, only he got drafted a hella lot later lol.
