"It's been a long time and I am happy that everything is finally over and I get a chance to be a football player again," JaMarcus Russell said in a statement released by the Raiders. "I can't wait to get out there to see everybody."
Wearing his No. 2 red jersey, Russell stretched then worked out with Oakland's other quarterbacks in individual drills. He threw several short passes and worked on his mechanics before joining the rest of the team for a full workout.
The Raiders called a press conference for 3 p.m. Wednesday when Russell will be made available to reporters.
