Davis chimes in on quarterback situation

While Raiders coach Lane Kiffin remains mum on who the starting quarterback will be on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, owner Al Davis has put in his 2 cents on who the starter should be. “Should be? He may be in Mobile,” Davis said, referring to the Alabama hometown of No. 1 overall draft pick JaMarcus Russell. Meanwhile, Russell’s uncle has been quoted in USA Today saying that a contract was “almost done,” but the Raiders say nothing is close at this point. “I wouldn’t really pay attention to what someone’s uncle said about the negotiation process,” Kiffin said.
