NFL Scores - Jordan's situation still not moving

Jordan's situation still not moving

LaMont Jordan

One of the more interesting player situations in the league is LaMont Jordan's in Oakland. The team held him out of its minicamp in early June and he has been expected to be released because of a high salary and a surplus of running backs in the Oakland backfield.

Despite being held out of the minicamp, Jordan remains Oakland property a month later. Oakland wants to trade Jordan but the market may be small with Chicago, New Orleans and New England as potential suitors.

If the Raiders can't swing a trade for Jordan before training camp starts it will be interesting to see if he is allowed to practice during training camp. Jordan, who has been very professional during this time, will likely urge the team for his release if the situation isn't resolved by late this month.
