This DLD will stretch from Saturday, the 23rd through Monday, the 25th, in light of the three-day weekend. So, first off, happy Memorial Day (on Monday) to all of you. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military. Thanks to the United States of America's service men and women for their service and God bless America.
On the Raiders front, David White is taking a look at JaMarcus Russell's image off of the field. He compares JaMarcus Russell to other young quarterbacks who lost their job to veterans because of one reason or another. First it was his weight issue, next it was his performance in OTAs and now it's his image off the field.
Here are some quick-hitting links:
- ESPN has picked up the possible quarterback controversy between the Oakland Raiders.
- New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian are expected to wed very soon, but not quite yet
- Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer took a swipe at receiver Chad Ochocinco earlier this week on the Sirius NFL Radio Movin' the Chains show.
