The Oakland Raiders are preparing to release quarterback JaMarcus Russell but have to await the final word to release him from owner Al Davis, according to sources.

Russell is on the books for $9.45 million this season, including $3 million of guaranteed money. Since trading for former Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell on Saturday, the Raiders have studied Russell's contract and tried to figure out ways to release him to save the organization some money.

If he gets the $3 million (and sources expect that he will), Russell will have been paid $39 million since coming to the team as a first-round pick in 2007.

The Raiders have a minicamp Friday and it's very possible Russell could be released before then. If Davis doesn't give the go-ahead to release him before Friday, he might attend the minicamp, but the team might not let him practice, fearing that he would suffer an injury and leave the team liable for the $9.45 million in salary.

None. He is going to retire on his millions "earned" for doing virtually nothing.

Then in 6 more months when he's totally broke, cash4gold.com is gonna make a killing on this guy!

:spit: A cash for gold reference.

If I'm Russel, I'm hoping they stall through mini camp and then I'm doing everything in my power to break or tear something. Would you intentionally tear a knee ligament for ten milling dollars? I would. For a tenth of that.

The Buffalo Buffets. That is a team, right?

I just hope he signs with a team that can't knock us out of the playoffs 3 years in a row - which is why I've stayed away from the Russell jokes.

I believe Russell needs a second chance. Call me crazy but when your whole professional existence is with the NFL's most dysfunctional team and you have coaches like Lane Kiffin and Tom Cable, then you can't flat out say the kid is a bust.

I think he deserves a chance to go to a team as a 3rd-stringer and tote the clipboard for a year, gain some perspective and actually work with a good o-coordinater.

You guessed it, the JETS!

They're the new east-coast reclamation project team.

I've got mad respect for the guy. Work your ass off in college, get a pay day, then coooooooast.

Not me. Then again, I still make fun of Rivers. Russell was a big part of the reason Raiders are playing spoiler every year rather then making us fight for 2nd place in the west.

With this kind of money I highly doubt he plays football again

Nothin but donuts and buffets from here

I hear that the Sacramento Mountain Lions are in the market for defensive linemen. At 300 pounds Jemarcus would be perfect.

Agree, I feel the same. What's the over/under on when he becomes a Tony Dungy guided reclamation project?

Someday. we may re ad about him being hoisted on a truck to be taken to a hospital for gastric bypass surgery.

I just don't think he would be offered a job anywhere.
