Yes, you heard that right! JaMarcus Russell has been released by the Oakland Raiders.

It has been a tumultuous career for Russell in Oakland, mostly because of his own lack of work ethic and partly because he was drafted by the Raiders. Now, who is more at fault for Russell's failure is up for grabs.

This is another link on the short chain of good moves that the Raiders have been making recently, starting with the draft. Here's hoping that this will make the Raiders a better team in the long run, because the league is better when the Raiders are doing well.

Let the discussion begin on which, if any team, will choose to sign Russell and give him a chance to revive his career, assuming that Russell has redemption on his mind.
