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.

  • @DeMarcusRFNET @R_J_175 Yeah, but they can't just change stuff like that even with legit reason. Has to be cleared.

  • @DeMarcusRFNET @R_J_175 SF is funny place for these things, for sure. At worst it probably costs them a year. Not bad.

  • @DeMarcusRFNET @R_J_175 Nothing would get done in SF ever if they didn't have a way to deal with them. Complaints have to be validated.
