Analysis: Yahoo! Sports first reported the story Thursday, saying the Raiders are seeking $9.55 million from Russell in what was paid as salary advances for the 2010-12 seasons. The team later confirmed the report. Russell was released earlier this month after three disappointing seasons with the team. He had been paid about $36.4 million through last season and was still owed $3 million at the time of his release.

Analysis: Russell was a popular college player in Louisiana, putting together a highlight-filled LSU career that led Oakland to make him the No. 1 overall draft choice of 2007. But Russell struggled with the Raiders, who released him on Thursday after thee seasons. Payton says it's newsworthy when a top draft choice is released after only three seasons and that players like Russell often get a second chance in the NFL.

"We wish him well," senior executive John Herrera told The Associated Press.
Analysis: The decision comes less than two weeks after Oakland acquired Jason Campbell from Washington to take over at quarterback. Russell will now likely be considered the biggest draft bust in NFL history. He will have been paid more than $39 million by the Raiders, while producing only seven wins as a starter. His career has been hampered by a rookie holdout, poor work habits, being overweight and the lack of productive players around him.

The only remaining question looks to be if they cut ties with the former No. 1 overall pick before this weekend's mandatory minicamp begins, wait until training camp, drag it out until final roster cuts or even keep Russell on the roster for another season as a backup. But his days as a starter are likely over.
Analysis: After acquiring Campbell over the weekend from Washington for a 2012 fourth-round draft pick, coach Tom Cable didn't want to get into what the future held for Russell. Cable said he expected Russell to be at minicamp Friday. "There will be some decisions to be made here in the next month or so, whatever that is," Cable said. "We'll just leave it at that until we get through some of those decisions."
