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.

  • "Natural runner" is pretty loaded term. Better "athlete" can be debated as well.

  • @TheSveed I'm sure, but 7 replacements is crazy. They don't do that many in wet/cold climates. Must be reason they are considering turf.

  • What is the deal with this field? 7 planned replacements & considering fake turf next year. In NorCal. Absurd. https://t.co/04LF6uUfj9
