Default McFadden Deal Soon?

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/rumors

The Oakland Raiders drafted Darren McFadden because of his phenomenal speed on the field. Turns out, he could be just as quick to the contract table. McFadden's agent, Ian Greengross, is scheduled to meet with the team's contract negotiators this week. Figures on both sides are optimistic a deal could be struck in June, which would be something of a landmark for the Raiders.

Last year, the Raiders didn't sign No. 1 overall draft pick JaMarcus Russell until Sept. 11 — two days after the season opener. Negotiation talks were cursory at best until July and stalled shortly after training camp started. McFadden has repeatedly said he does not want to miss a day of camp, and it appears that he won't. He has told family members and friends it looks like the deal will get done sooner than he expected.

"They said probably by June they should know what's going on," said Mini Muhammad, McFadden's mother, from her home in Little Rock, Ark. "I know they're working on it."

A team source confirmed the accelerated nature of the contract talks.
