GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Life keeps lobbing these tantalizing opportunities at Antonio Freeman. Like a good receiver, he hasn't dropped one yet.Take his rookie season in 1995 with the Green Bay Packers. When the team needed a kick returner, the wide receiver from Virginia Tech filled the bill with a bang.Freeman averaged better than 23 yards per kick return, almost 8 yards on punts, and when the playoffs arrived, he scored on a 76-yard punt return to help eliminate the Atlanta Falcons.A year later, he was in the starting lineup at split end. Then he was out, with a fractured left forearm.

For what it's worth, the Maryland House of Delegates is strongly convinced that the Green Bay Packers will win the Super Bowl.With an extremely light agenda early in the 90-day legislative session, House Speaker Casper R. Taylor Jr. yesterday instructed the House clerks to call the roll on the game's outcome.Before the vote was taken, there was even some lobbying. One Baltimore County delegate rose to remind his colleagues that the New England Patriots feature running back David Meggett, a former Towson State University standout.

SAN DIEGO -- The Denver Broncos are limited in the way they can attack Green Bay's passing game because cornerbacks Ray Crockett and Darrien Gordon don't match up well with Green Bay receivers Antonio Freeman and Robert Brooks.It may be the greatest mismatch in Super Bowl XXXII.Crockett can't turn and cover deep routes and Gordon lacks ball awareness skills that make him vulnerable to play-action fakes.So expect the Broncos to play a lot of zone and rotate the safeties to the outside so they won't give up big plays.

Antonio Freeman didn't remember whether his team won or lost the Big 33 Football Classic game the summer after his senior year at Poly in 1990. He has more important memories of the Maryland-Pennsylvania high school football all-star game. "I had never been away from home for a week's time, slept in somebody else's bed. The whole experience helped me prepare for college. I had a great host family. I'm still in touch with the host family," said Freeman, who went on to play in two Super Bowls with the NFL's Green Bay Packers, winning one. "And it was just one of those things that made you realize you were one of the elite in the whole state, and you were surrounded by other guys who have the same goals that you have, to play college football and to get an education, and it was a great fraternity to be a part of. " Freeman, whose team lost the game, gathered with fellow Big 33 veterans Reggie White and Keith Kormanik, as well as coaching veterans Roger Wrenn and Bill McGregor, at St. Paul's School on Thursday to talk about how happy they are to see Maryland and Pennsylvania renew their Big 33 rivalry after 21 years.

As the NFL prepares to enter its annual slumber until training camps open in a few weeks, the Ravens figure to be one of the teams that draw few headlines. Ravens officials have contacted the agents for all seven of their draft choices but likely will sign most of the picks the week before training camp opens July 29, as has been the pattern in previous years. Team officials also said the roster is virtually intact and that they do not anticipate adding any of the bigger-name free agents still left on the market, a list that includes linebacker Jason Gildon, running back Antowain Smith, offensive lineman Marcus Spears and receiver Antonio Freeman (Poly)

What's left for the Ravens after losing out on Terrell Owens isn't pretty. A second-option receiver on a mediocre team might well be the most attractive choice available. Dez White, who started 11 games for the 7-9 Chicago Bears last year but played a supporting role to Marty Booker, is the biggest name receiver left on the free-agent market. He's the player at whom the Ravens will likely take the longest look. White's agent, Ben Dogra, said he has not heard from the Ravens, who are in no hurry to fill the void Owens' loss creates.

The New England Patriots crawled out of a 1-3 hole last season to win their first NFL championship. Coach Bill Belichick doesn't want to have to take that uphill route again, so he greeted players at training camp with T-shirts and a theme. On the back of the T-shirts was a bull's-eye with the logos of the Patriots' first four opponents in the center. The theme, Targeting September, was also written on the back. What Belichick was saying is that the Patriots can't afford another 1-3 start - or the 0-4 they experienced in 2000 - if they expect to defend their Super Bowl title.

Less than two months before training camps open, the NFL's revolving personnel door will spit out another class of free agents in the coming days. This one promises to be even more tepid than the moderate March market. As many as four wide receivers of distinction - all age 30 or older - and a handful of aging defensive linemen are expected to become available when teams make one more round of cuts for salary cap relief. Ten years after free agency began, the annual June 1 cuts no longer hold intrigue.
