Minicamp Highlights

How about some one-liners?
- JaMarcus Russell looked good, who knows what that means going forward.
- Russell looked noticeably thinner than last season, not 300 pounds (Shame on NationalFootballPost.com for reporting it)
- Richard Seymour is working on a long-term contract with the Raiders
- Oren O’Neal was waived
- Veteran Michael Bennett is in for a tryout as was rookie DT Allen Smith from Stanford.
- Bruce Campbell has a severe learning disability, which likely aided his fall in the draft. More on that as it becomes available.
- Additions and subtractions to my undrafted rookie list. Add TE John Owens and DB Joey Thomas, remove WR Trent Guy (Panthers).
- Russell hasn’t taken a pay cut…yet.
- The Raiders are still a 4-3 defense, despite much speculation.
- Lamarr Houston is indeed playing left end. He will have a tough time earning a starting role there.
- Russell’s bling necklace inventory: #2 Jersey, The Chosen One, Russell Figure with a cape, a hand giving a middle finger. Of course, all diamond encrusted to the hilt.
- Robert Gallery was participating.
- Chaz Schilens, Nick Miller, and Bruce Gradkowski (obviously) did not participate.
