The Raiders signed JaMarcus Russell for $36 million when they drafted him first in 2007, and six years later, they’re still paying for it. From the San Francisco Chronicle...
quote:

"The Raiders are paying former quarterback JaMarcus Russell close to $3 million in a settlement over his disputed rookie contract, league sources said.

He had been paid $36.4 million and was still owed $3 million at the time of his release. The Raiders filed a grievance against Russell, seeking repayment of $9.55 million in salary advances, and Russell filed a grievance of his own, saying he was owed an additional $9 million."
