Graham Rahal will drive in the Indy 500 for famous Dad

compiled from staff and wire reports

It’s still early in the Indy Racing League season and it’s hard to believe that Graham Rahal still doesn’t have a regular ride. But he will have on for “The Greatest Spectacle In Racing” the Indianapolis 500. And most of all, he’ll be driving for his famous dad.

Rahal will drive for Rahal Letterman Racing, teamming up with his dad who has won at the Brickyard as a driver and an owner.

The younger Rahal 21, will drive in the May 30 race in the Rahal/Letterman’s number 30 Dallara/Honda for a yet-to-be-determined sponsor.

Considered to be one of the best driver’s on the IndyCar Series’ circuit since he became it’s youngest at 19 in 2008, Graham went into 2010 without a full ride after two years with Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing.

Rahal had a chance to drive in the first three of the first four races with  Sarah Fisher Racing, his best finish a ninth at St. Petersburg. Fisher took over behind the wheel at Kansas Speedway last weekend, leaving the talented and popular Rahal with an uncertain future.

His dad, Bobby Rahal was a three-time CART champion, who won the Indy in 1986 as a driver and as owner with Buddy Rice in 2004. Despite his son’s talents as a driver, Bobby had been very reluctant to hire him as a driver at Rahal-Letterman Racing, because he wanted Graham to be his own man, live on his own accomplishments and no one can say he made it because his dad is Bobby Rahal.

The Raiders cut their losses with JaMarcus Russell

compiled by staff and wire reports

After three years, more than $39 million and only seven wins as the number 1 quarterback for the Oakland Raiders, JaMarcus Russell’s career in Oakland is history.

The top overall pick in the 2007 draft, Russell was a colassal failure in Oakland. Two weeks after acquiring quarterback Jason Campbell from Washington, the Raiders released Russell. At 24, his NFL career is at a standstill, and it is not clear if he’ll get another offer from another team.

The decision shows that owner Al Davis finally had lost patience with the talented but unproductive and erratic quarterback he drafted against the wishes of then coach Lane Kiffin.

The Raiders paid Russell about $36.4 million through last season. They still owe him $3 million more, putting the final tab on his earnings at  about $39.4 million. But the team saved $6.45 million by not having him on the roster in 2010.

Since the start of the common draft in 1967  as we know it today, only one other number 1 pick was released this quickly in his NFL career. Indianapolis cut 1992 pick Steve Emtman after three seasons, but that was more because of injuries than production.

Bengals give Pacman Jones a chance and a 2-year deal

compiled from staff and wire reports

Adam "Pacman" Jones (nfl)

Adam “Pacman” Jones agreed to a two-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, putting the controversial and troubled defensive back on a team with a history of giving players a second chances.

Jones, who was released by the Cowboys after the 2008 season and didn’t play in 2009, worked out twice for the Bengals this offseason, including Tuesday. He was selected by Tennessee in the first round of the 2005 draft, but has struggled to stay on the field because of his repeated arrests.

The 26-year-old Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 season and for six games with the Cowboys in 2008 for vilating the NFL’S conduct policy.

He will be joining one of the NFL’s top defenses and defensive backfield’s which includes Johnathan Joseph, Leon Hall and Morgan Trent.

The defense finished fourth in the league in 2009, one of the reasons Cincinnati won the AFC North with a 10-6 record.

Tampa Bay won for its fourth straight and ninth in 11 games and is 12-1 on the road. The Rays are one of only four teams since 1961 to start 12-1 or better on the road.
