According to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, numerous NFL teams are following JaMarcus Russell as he works on mounting a comeback. I’m told that a number of teams have been following Russell’s comeback attempt closely. It’s not the entire league, but it’s more than a few teams. Freeman believes teams are interested in Russell because there aren’t enough good quarterbacks in the NFL right now. The reason that teams are interested is because there just aren’t enough good quarterbacks in the league. For every great, like Aaron Rodgers, there is a Ryan Fitzpatrick. There are a ton of scrubs at the position in the league, and this year’s draft isn’t knocking the socks off teams.

Raiders must think defensive line in 2013 NFL Draft

The Oakland Raiders were held back by the defense over the last few years and now, in the 2013 NFL Draft, they must address it.

NFL Draft Team Needs: Oakland Raiders

1. Defensive Tackle: Both of last years' starters are now gone, so at least one DT should be brought in via the draft. It looks like Oakland will use the third overall selection on Lotulelei or Floyd at the moment. 2. Cornerback: This has been a need for a few years now, and they may finally address it early in this draft. I doubt they will go Milliner in the first...

The Raiders’ long nightmare at linebacker is officially over. The team on Friday finally, after three years of off-the-field stupidity and on-the-field mediocrity, cut middle linebacker/headache Rolando McClain. This has been a long time coming. McClain, the Raiders’ 8th overall pick in 2010, probably sealed his fate when he got into a confrontation with Dennis Allen in Week...

Does Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin Still Want Fomer Raiders LB Rolando McClain?

As soon as the Oakland Raiders waived linebacker Rolando McClain on Friday, I knew that several people would be hollering for the Pittsburgh Steelers to go after him. A lot of the hollering for McClain by the fanbase stems from an article that Kevin Scarbinsky of the Birmingham News wrote back in December of 2009, right before Alabama played Florida. Scabinsky wrote that then...
