The intriguing offseason of former Steeler RB Gary Russell has taken yet another turn. Following a strangely-timed release in April by the Super Bowl Champs, Russell was promptly signed and just-as-promptly released by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Today, he was signed by the NFL's Last Chance Saloon, the Oakland Raiders.

Russell will be fifth on a talented yet crowded Raider depth chart that includes Darren McFadden, Justin Fargas, Michael Bush, and Louis Rankin. The Raiders also have four fullbacks, including four-time Pro Bowler Lorenzo Neal.

I'd say this was a surprising move by the Raiders, if for no other reason than the fact that Russell ran a 4.84 40 at the combine in 2007.
