Fun with Math!

JaMarcus Russell was released today. As this article notes, the Raiders will have paid him a grand total of 39.4 million dollars. That means the Raiders paid JaMarcus:

$1,576,000 per start (25).
$5,628,571.43 per win (7).
$2,188,888.89 per touchdown pass (18).
$111,299.44 per completion (354).
$604,294.48 per quarterback rating point (65.2).

When they institute a rookie salary cap in the next bargaining agreement they should name it the JaMarcus Rule.
