The Oakland Raiders released former No. 1 overall draft pick JaMarcus Russell on Thursday after a three-year tenure marked by his high salary and unproductive play on the field. Hard to believe even Al Davis is admitting defeat so soon, but in a non salary cap year, it is a chance to get out from under the future cap charge. NFL.com has Russell as the No. 1 all-time bust.
WTAE-TV reporter, Josh Taylor, tweeted a little known fact yesterday that Jamarcus Russell has the 2nd worst completion percentage of any quarterback drafted 1st overall. Terry Bradshaw has the worst.
Steelers.com is accepting questions for third-round draft pick wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

Jack McCallum, the author of the Sports Illustrated cover story featuring Ben Roethlisberger joined the Vinnie and Cook show on 93.7 to talk about how the city has turned on their quarterback. Audio is below.
The NFLPA is threatening to boycott three prominent Indianapolis hotels during the NFL Scouting Combine next year as a show of support to hotel employees. I don\’t know what to think about that. Seems the NFLPA needs to just stay out of it.
I just did not realize how much footage of the Steelers was on Hulu. Check out the archive of Games of the Week. Goes all the way back to 2002 Browns at Steelers game. Plenty of great viewing on that page.
