Washington signs final 2 holdouts

SHARE Washington signs final 2 holdouts

With complex haggling complete, the Washington Redskins signed Stephen Davis and LaVar Arrington — their final two holdouts.

Davis, a running back, agreed to a one-year, $3.532 million contract Saturday, a letdown considering he felt he had earned a multiyear deal. No. 2 overall draft pick Arrington accepted what is essentially a six-year deal with a base salary between $35 million and $36 million, according to one of his agents, Kevin Poston.

RAIDERS: Kicker Sebastian Janikowski, surrounded by off-field trouble, arrived for his first day of training camp.

On Friday, Janikowski signed a five-year contract worth $6.05 million, including a $2 million signing bonus.

STEELERS: Cornerback Hank Poteat, the last of nine draft picks to sign with Pittsburgh, finally arrived for practice at training camp.

Poteat, a three-year starter at the University of Pittsburgh, would have earned more money if he had signed last week.

DOLPHINS: Miami has not set a time table for receiver O.J. McDuffie to return from a toe injury that required surgery in February.

Miami placed McDuffie on the active/physically unable to perform list Friday after he failed his physical. He does some light running while his teammates go through complete drills.

BRONCOS: Ian Gold, a second-round draft pick, arrived at Denver's training camp early Saturday after signing a four-year contract worth about $3 million.

Gold will compete at weakside linebacker, where John Mobley established himself as an All-Pro in 1997. Glenn Cadrez filled the role when Mobley went down with a knee injury last year.

Defensive tackle Trevor Pryce was again a no-show as he held out for a new contract. An All-Pro in 1999, the 24-year-old Pryce is set to make $762,000 this season and has two years remaining on his original contract. He reportedly wants a new deal that would pay him at least $5 million annually.

GIANTS: New York starting center Dusty Zeigler was poked in the right eye and had to leave afternoon practice.

In one of his first practices after being named head coach in 1997, Jim Fassel saw center Brian Williams poked in the right eye by defensive lineman Bernard Holsey.
