A day after John Clayton reported the Raiders were preparing to cut JaMarcus Russell, Adam Schefter is reporting through his Twitter account that Russell is expected to attend this weekend’s minicamp and compete for his job.
I’m pulling for Schefter on this on this one.
An interesting minicamp becomes even better if Russell takes the field.
How does he look? Is he throwing the ball better than he did at last year’s minicamp? How many snaps does he get as compared to Jason Campbell, Charlie Frye and Kyle Boller?
My understanding is that Russell is in the building today, working out. That make sense. He’s still employed by the Raiders until told otherwise and stands to make at least $3 million.
