End of the road for JaMarcus

San Francisco Chronicle - [Full Article]

Nothing's been announced yet, but you have to figure that's it for JaMarcus Russell as a Raider. Saturday's trade for Washington quarterback Jason Campbell (for a fourth-round pick in 2012) makes it financially improbable that Russell will be back for a fourth year.

Oakland is on the hook for $3 million for the former No. 1 pick even if they cut him today, and would owe him another $6.45 million if he makes the team. Even having Russell at next week's minicamp is risky because he might get hurt and in the process put a hurting on the team's wallet.
