Raiders Reportedly Agree To Deal With Russell

The Raiders appear to finally have their quarterback of the future in the fold.  The “Oakland Tribune” reports the Raiders have agreed in principle to a six-year contract with JaMarcus Russell, the first-overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft.  The deal is expected to officially be signed later today once Russell completes a physical exam.  The LSU product will reportedly earn at least $31-million in guaranteed money, with a maximum total value of $68-million.  Russell could practice with Oakland for the first time on Wednesday.
