Raiders reach agreement in principle with top pick JaMarcus Russell

Filed under: NFL — Bill @ 9:23 pm

According to Len Pasquarelli of ESPN:

“Ending months of negotiations and a holdout that stretched to more than six weeks, the Oakland Raiders reached a contact agreement in principle on Monday night with JaMarcus Russell, the former LSU quarterback who was the first overall selection in the 2007 draft.

Barring any glitches and contingent on formalities like him passing a physical exam, ESPN.com has confirmed that Russell will officially sign a six-year contract on Tuesday and should be on the field for the team’s Wednesday practice.”

It’s about time.
