Russell To Be a Redskin By Wednesday!

Postby Jake » Sun Oct 26, 2003 4:31 pm

DT May Land With Redskins
Sunday, October 26, 2003


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

It's too bad about his off-field troubles 'cause he's a stud DT.

We may as well take a flyer on him and hope he can stay out of trouble. He hasn't played for a whilw, so it'll probably take a little time to get back in to playing shape.

He was a really good player once upon a time for the Raiders. If he can get back to half that player, he'll be an improvement.
Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.

I cant beleive he is only 25 in age. It seems as if... I've been hearing his name for years.

I can't believe it, either, he's been in the league since 1997. Nice avatar, Boss. :lol:

According to his bio sheet he is 27 - born 5/27/76. Still a young pup - that may need to be house broken.

6-5 325

In 5 years:

176 tackles
28.5 sacks
22 passes defended
1 Int
5 forced fumbles

Two consecutive trips to the pro bowl in 98 and 99

Not bad - it isn't like we can't use him - just assign him the two guys from Ocean's 11 to keep an eye on his stupid butt.
