That’s right, former Raiders star quarterback and huge fan of purple drank, JaMarcus Russell, needs to come up with $195,512.05 in the next three months or his Oakland mansion will be headed to the auction block. Chopping block? Regardless, hooray for train wrecks that aren’t named Charlie Sheen making the news!

Since owner Al Davis bid adieu to the draft bust Russell in 2009, the Southern boy has been living in his native Alabama, despite numerous attempts to make another NFL squad.

So I know it probably sounds crazy (sarcasm noted), but I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that J-Money won’t be dropping another dime on this place. Your thoughts?

While all the running back talk approaching the 2011 NFL Draft is sure to focus on the likes of Alabama’s Mark Ingram, Pitt’s Dion Lewis, Cal’s Shane Vereen, etc … remember this name, Taiwan Jones.

Jones grew up in the East Bay town of Antioch, graduated from Deer Valley High, just completed his junior season at FCS (aka D-IAA) powerhouse, Eastern Washington, and is already being compared to NFL speedsters, Chris Johnson and Jamaal Charles.

I repeat, remember this name, Taiwan Jones. And for a great read on Jones’ career thus far, click here.
