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.

  • FYI: Running into the kicker is a judgement call. Rule is not specific. Any contact by defensive player that is not caused by the kicker.

  • That's a higher win% than average. In theory that means this season has been more predictable. I beg to differ.
