Yahoo! Sports: Raiders File Grievance Against Russell

The Raiders have filed a grievance against JaMarcus Russell according to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, who cited two unnamed sources.

The Raiders apparently seek to recover $9.55 million of advances on salary the team gave Russell for the 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons.

Apparently Russell’s contract was changed at some point in the last three years as a basis for the grievance.

The NFL Players Association will represent Russell in the grievance.

  • @secreta4 It's not only use it or lose it, but accounting nightmare. They'll get it done...somehow.

  • @secreta4 That said, they'd probably get a break because their expenses were retroactively higher...reducing profits.

  • @secreta4 No, it would fall under same rule as player contracts.
