NFL Network: Camp JaMarcus is on


According to the NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora, JaMarcus Russell made good on his promise to gather some of his receivers for a secret passing camp before the Raiders report for training camp on July 29.

LaCanfora, a former Washington Post reporter who replaced Adam Schefter on the network, said Louis Murphy, Will Franklin and Todd Watkins to Alabama on Russell’s dime and that others could follow.

Extending the effort is a good sign with regard to Russell. It’s particularly bold statement from Murphy, a rookie who is not under contract and has no protection from injury. With a multi-million dollar contract on the line plus several weeks of hamstring issues, it would be an even bolder gamble by No. 1 pick Darrius Heyward-Bey. Other receivers who missed time due to injury at the final OTA were Chaz Schilens, Javon Walker and Arman Shields.

    But again, I must admit, I am a hater. I hate LA teams, can’t stand the Lakers (although props to Kobe, he played awesome this year, and Gasol needs more touches), and am an angry Raider, Cal bears, Warriors fan.

    However, the SF Giants baby!!!!! 2nd best record in the NL!!!!
    right behind the LOS ANGELES DODGERS. lmfao

    Got to go. Have a great day.

    Go Lakers and sign Odom, Upchuck!

    Please. 5 rings and he won’t be considered? Big Shot Bob and his 7 rings will be considered. I didn’t say Fish was in I said he would be considered. The Spurs are one of the stacked teams I was referring to as well as Boston. However Portland, Denver, Dallas, Cleveland Orlando, and Philly and most of the other teams stand little to no chance against the stacked teams in the NBA.

    Good mornin all.

    New post up.

    Without even thinking about it too hard you know especially now after adding a defensive stopper like Artest, the Lakers are the favorite to win the West and play for another Championship. This is a true statement in July.

    Louis Murphy is the next Tim Brown!

  • weaselbit

    tim Brown was awful.
    You could count on him to drop it if it really counted.
    Why do people deify him so much?
    Lots of yardage, when it didn’t count.
    Overpaid too.
    I was praying he’d retire.
    Not fit to hold Biletnikoff’s jock.
    Caught everything anywhere near him.
    Only wore shoulder pads and a helmet.

  • weaselbit

    To clarify, Fred B. was the one who caught anything near him.
