The Oakland Raiders are paying former QB JaMarcus Russell close to $3 million in a settlement over his disputed rookie contract, league sources said Tuesday, July 2. He had been paid $36.4 million and was still owed $3 million at the time of his release. The team filed a grievance against Russell, seeking repayment of $9.55 million in salary advances, and Russell filed a grievance of his own, saying he was owed an additional $9 million.
