OAKLAND (CBS Sports) — In September 2007, the Oakland Raiders signed first-overall pick JaMarcus Russell to a six-year, $68-million contract that included $32 million in guaranteed money. In May 2010 – after three forgettable seasons that included a 52.1 completion percentage, 18 touchdowns, 23 interceptions and a 7-18 record – Russell was released.

And now, the Raiders have reportedly paid Russell another $3 million in a settlement over his disputed rookie contract.
