Raiders | File grievance against JaMarcus Russell
The Oakland Raiders have filed a grievance against free-agent QB JaMarcus Russell (Raiders) seeking repayment of $9.55 million, reports Jason Cole, of Yahoo! Sports. The grievance is based on the contention by the team that the contract was changed at one point during his three-year stint with the Raiders and that he is not allowed to keep all of the money he collected prior to being released May 7. Part of Russell's guaranteed $32 million was originally in the form of salary advances for the 2010, 2011 and 2012 season. A portion of those salaries is in question, according to the grievance.
