Sources: No. 1 pick Russell, Raiders set to start talking again
In an effort to further close the gap in negotiations, and perhaps hammer out a contract for top overall draft pick JaMarcus Russell before the start of the season, the representatives for the former LSU quarterback are set to meet Friday with Oakland Raiders officials, according to sources.The scheduled talks, at an undisclosed location, will be the first face-to-face negotiations in about two weeks. The two sides previously met in Los Angeles, and were believed to have opened a solid and ongoing dialogue, but progress has been incremental since then.
Remember the Raiders
One draft pick isn't signed as the NFL heads into opening weekend. Should we be surprised it's in Oakland, where fans remember when it was a whole lot better? Kreidler
