I disagree. Almost every GM will figure that Russell had zero chance to develop in Al Davis's excuse for an organization. They will all wonder what Russell could accomplish if he landed with a team that had a sound organization and a solid HC. They would want to see if their HC and the veterans on their team could inspire Russell to work his butt off. With his arm, every team will want a shot at his services even if he turns out to be a flop. If Oakland allows him to enter FA, it will cost peanuts to give him another shot with the financial risk minimal for the potential reward.
Oakland is a dead franchise waiting for Al Davis's demise. As long as he owns the team, they won't see daylight even if they drafted another Peyton. Nobody can be really successful in that mess and most would love to get out of Oakland and go to another team.
