Oakland Raiders Select Jamarcus Russell with the First Draft Pick

The long wait is over, the Oakland Raiders have finally selected Jamarcus Russell. Could this be someone who can actually get the ball to Randy Moss or will Moss be traded? With only one question actually answered for the Raiders, now many more come about. So many questions surround the Raiders, obvious why they finished last in the league last year.

There are also a lot of talk about trading picks for many teams, we'll see how that works out.

I will post the next first few draft picks as they happen.

Dante Hall traded to the Rams

A trade that may just work for both teams, Dante Hall was traded to the St. Louis Rams for a fifth-round pick.

The Ram's special teams has been horrible. Last year they averaged on 7.8 yards per punt return, making them 27th in the league. On kick returns, they weren't much better, ranking 26th.

If Hall can return to his stellar performances of years past, St. Loius can be in for a steal, only giving up a 5th rounder. Hall only needs 4 more kickoff returns for TDs, to break Brian Mitchells record.

As the Ram's also have lost Curtis to free agency, Hall may be an asset as a 3rd or 4th wide receiver.

Hall still has a few seasons left in him, he's 28, plenty of time to turn around his last two disappointing seasons.

Michael Turner's Price Tag Still Two Draft Picks

If you are like me, you are craving NFL news. The hottest topic this month has been Michael Turner, who I wrote about before.

It's tough to say if he will be traded, there is no rush or need to. At least, for the Chargers. Six NFL teams are rumored to be in the market for Turner, two of which we know of. Tennessee and Buffalo haven't made it a secret they are in the market for Turner.

The pressure is now on them however with the NFL Draft Date getting close. April 28th is just around the corner, and any team wanting Turner will have to pay the price.

A.J Smith had this to say about trading Turner:

“It's still a 1 and a 3. I'm flexible. What I mean is that I recognize that a 1 and a 3 would paralyze a team's draft. So work with us.

“Six teams are still very interested. I can only tell you two, Buffalo and Tennessee, because they don't care if it's known. I'm sworn to secrecy on the others. They're trying to stay under the radar. A lot of people are scared to death to let it out. I'm amazed this is going on, but I told them I'd only verify if you come out. Teams love me because of that. I tell them I'd like to have a 1 and a 3 in '07 or '08. You guys decide what it's worth.”

Hard to say how much longer Turner will remain a Charger.

Ticket Liquidator

I've come across another ticket seller by the name of ticketliquadator. Browsing the sports tickets I have found the prices aren't that bad, it all depends on what you want. There's even tickets available for Green Bay's home opener.

If you have an extra ticket that you need sold, you can sell on ticket liquidator. You just have to create a free account and list your ticket. For their service, you pay 10%, which isn't asking that much. They have tickets of all genres range from baseball to boxing, NASCAR and college.

Michael Turner; Staying in San Diego?

Michael Turner can be a commodity this season. That is, if the Chargers can part with the prized reserve Running Back. The current price tag on Turner is a first and third round draft pick. For Turner however, that's not as hefty of a price as it seems. Especially for those teams who have two third round choices, or can afford to give one up for next years draft.

A trade is "more likely" but I doubt any team will be able to work out a deal with Turner and entice A.J Smith to part with him. Since Turner will be a free agent next year if he isn't traded, it looks to me teams will just wait for a bidding war next season.

The Tennessee Titans visited with Turner and have shown interest. Their #1 running back is Lendale White after losing Travis Henry. White is more of a situational or complimentary back, not an every down player. He was used perfectly at USC, Turner would fit in well with White.

Other teams rumored to be interested in Turner are Buffalo, Dallas and New York Jets. I don't see Dallas or the Jets really making a serious offer for Turner with their current Running Back situations.
