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...

"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."
