Well, I'll tell you what, I'm open for it...I mean come on, the D-line obviously has done very poorly all year long...Bringing a guy like him in could really benefit if they even used him. Look at Lionel Dalton--where the hell has he been?? Didn't he suit up for the first or second time last week?? i mean they make a stink about him coming in here, he gets here and hardly even suits up let alone play...Who knows, if Russell comes in, maybe he can make some plays that will pump up the entire defense
Hail to the Redskins...Hail Victory!!!

I honestly don't think he should ever be allowed to play in the league again. A person with a regular job would have been fired 8 times for the stuff that her did. So if he comes here, he better grow up and contribute.

ESPN.com news services
Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Darrell Russell has been reinstated by the NFL, according to his attorney David Cornwell, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Sunday.

Russell, 25, tested positive for the club drug Ecstasy last season and was serving a one-year suspension after NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue turned down his appeal. Under the suspension, Russell was not eligible to play again until Jan. 2, 2004.

Russell also sat out the first four games of the 2002 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

The Raiders are expected to release Russell Monday or Tuesday, and Russell is expected to sign with the Washington Redskins by Wednesday, according to Mortensen.
