The Oakland Raiders were instilled as a +9 ½ underdog in the Sportsbetting.com Week 1 NFL Prospective odds found here.

This line comes following a less than favorable outcome at this year's NFL Draft according to ESPN.com:

There was a sense that Oakland may have reached slightly to take Rolando McClain, but framed against the backdrop of a draft in which they also got a physical talent like Bruce Campbell well into Round 4, Oakland improved upon last year. McClain fits a need -- the team reinforced that by trading Kirk Morrison -- and is ready to play. Oddly, speed has been a question (which doesn't fit the Al Davis mantra) with McClain, but I love his instincts. The Raiders definitely fit their profile with Campbell and then wideout Jacoby Ford, the fastest player in the draft. The issue with Ford is it's straight-line speed. Even Jared (Edwin) Veldheer is a workout warrior. The late addition of Jason Campbell via trade is a decent move, but this is the Raiders -- a guy who failed elsewhere seems like a good upgrade. Something's wrong with this picture.

The Raiders on Tuesday showed they were willing to part ways with quarterback JaMarcus Russell.

Sources at ESPN.com said that Since trading for former Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell on Saturday, the Raiders have studied Russell's contract and tried to figure out ways to release him to save the organization some money.  And this could happen by week's end.

Russell is on the books for $9.45 million this season, including $3 million of guaranteed money.
