Some Good News For Next Year

The 2010 season will be an uncapped one barring a sudden and unexpected deal between the owners and the players union. That means teams will be able to jettison contracts with no effect upon the salary cap.Teams across the league likely will rid rosters of their albatross contracts. Overpaid veterans and high-draft picks that haven’t lived up to expectations will be cut in large numbers. Russell’s hefty contract is a prime example, especially now that he isn’t starting. Unless Russell restructures his contract i dont see this guy in the silver and black after this year. To be honest I hope we cut ties completely with this guy. Another guy with a crazy contract i cant wait to see gone is Tommy Kelly. The Raiders did miss out on Russell in a big way but they wont have to carry his price tag like so many other teams do when a dead contract eats up cap space.
