BEREA, Ohio -- The Heisman Trophy winner's glorious entrance, if not his once-glorious promise, are history now.The Last Chance Kid, quarterback Vinny Testaverde, comes to the Cleveland Browns not on a white charger but on the eve of April Fool's Day.In Tampa Bay, they're saying the joke is on the Browns.Some joke.Testaverde could make as much as $2.45 million next season if Bernie Kosar ends up in plaster of Paris again and he will make an estimated $1.7 million regardless.After that, who knows?

Brian Hoyer grew up rooting for the Cleveland Browns as a young boy, wearing a Bernie Kosar jersey while sitting in the upper deck of old Municipal Stadium with his father. Now Hoyer is the Browns' starting quarterback with starter Brandon Weeden ruled out for the second game in a row because of a sprained right thumb suffered during a loss two weeks ago to the Ravens. These are heady times for Hoyer, a Cleveland St. Ignatius graduate preparing for his second NFL start Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Leave it to Jimmy Johnson and Bill Belichick.They seem determined to add some spice to what is rapidly becoming a dull NFL season.With the Dallas Cowboys appearing to be the class of the league and with the Buffalo Bills seemingly destined to become another sacrificial Super lamb, this NFL season was becoming a bore until Johnson, the Cowboys coach, and Belichick, the Cleveland Browns coach, made Bernie Kosar the focal point of a controversy.Belichick's decision to cut Kosar and Johnson's decision to sign him 24 hours later has raised a question that is being asked around the league: Who is the real Bernie Kosar?

One day after saying goodbye to troubled running back Bam Morris, the Ravens shook up their offensive backfield further by announcing that 14-year veteran back Earnest Byner will not play here in 1998, and that quarterback Jim Kelly will be named the starter if he decides to end his one-year retirement by playing in Baltimore.Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda has been studying film of Kelly's final season in 1996 with the Buffalo Bills, where Marchibroda worked with Kelly from 1987-1991 as a quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The season is only two games old, but the New York Jets have said a lot about themselves.They can score points in bunches. The defense, though inconsistent, is capable of making big plays. And, judging by the way they handled themselves late in the game yesterday against the Cleveland Browns, they must be maturing.Instead of running scared (see last week's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals), the Jets ran with the poise of a seasoned marathoner. In the end, they showed a little kick in beating the Browns, 24-21.

The Philadelphia Eagles are notorious for their punishing hits and intimidating tactics on defense, but nobody in recent years has described their offense as ingenious or even being a step ahead.Now, maybe someone will.On three successive Sundays, the Eagles have shown creative flair in their offensive game plan. In Week 1, they sprang a two-tight end formation on New Orleans, despite not having shown that set in the preseason. In Week 2, they trotted out a third tight end against Phoenix for a different look.

Maybe it's a question they should start asking on the late news: Do you know where your NFL team is tonight?For the second straight week, an NFL team announced it was moving last week when Bud Adams, owner of the Houston Oilers, signed a new deal with Nashville, Tenn.The move isn't as final as the one Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell announced in Baltimore the previous week, because Nashville fans have to buy almost 45,000 permanent seat licenses to make it official.There's another big difference: While the proposed Browns move has caused a firestorm in Cleveland and around the country, the Oilers' move was greeted almost with a yawn.

In his Christmas Day column, Denver Post sports columnist Woody Paige didn't have kind words for Baltimore or its football team. Some excerpts: "I wanted to be home in Denver the next two weekends, not in some hole like Baltimore, which is really Baltiless. ... "The Broncos will win in Baltiless against the Cleveland Browns. "Because the Broncos always eliminate the Browns in the playoffs. Check it out. The Broncos beat the Browns in the AFC championship games of the seasons of 1986, '87 and '89 with The Drive and The Fumble and The ... uh ... I forget ... The Immaculate Conception?
