Raiders Release Statement on Former QB JaMarcus Russell


Despite the release awhile ago of QB JaMarcus Russell, the team made a statement about the QB’s recent arrest for having codeine syrup.

“We did all that we could to intervene and assist with a myriad of issues with JaMarcus Russell,” the Raiders said in a statement.

“NFL policy restricts our ability to comment publicly at this time. Therefore, those in the media who declare what the Raiders knew or should have known or what the Raiders did or should have done, are reckless, irresponsible and offensive, and do a disservice to all concerned, including the public.”

Russell is free on bail, and further away from being with a team more than ever.
