It has signed Howard to an exclusive NFL trading-card contract for the 1992-93 season."We believe Desmond Howard is the most exciting rookie in the NFL," says Harlan Werner, AW's chairman of the board. "If collectors are interested in Howard cards, they will have to come to us if they want him in a Redskins uniform."

The Green Bay Packers used to go as far as Brett Favre's arm carried them.That has changed this year.They also have developed a defense to complement Favre.After their 42-10 rout of the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, the Packers boast the second-best defense in the league based on yards allowed. They are No. 1 in offense.Last season, they finished 14th in defense and seventh in offense."We were outplayed by our offense a lot last year," said cornerback Leroy Butler, whose two interceptions against the Chargers boosted his season total to four.

PASADENA, Calif. -- The certified best college football player in the land is standing before the microphones talking about the Rose Bowl game and the Heisman Trophy and the famous catch and the famous pose when, suddenly, Desmond Howard says this:"An athlete is the least thing I am."You pause and consider the statement and wonder if it's not unlike George Bush saying being president is the least thing he is. Actually, I know people who would agree with that assessment.The obvious follow-up is to ask Howard what is the most thing he is. And he says, without s skipping a beat: "Humanitarian."

The next move is up to Art Monk.In the wake of Monk's first public comments about his contract status, a team source said yesterday that the Washington Redskins aren't changing their position on Monk's status.They're leaving their offer of $1.1 million a year on the table, but they're not increasing it and they're not giving him his starting job back."The issue here is whether the coach has a right to name his starters," a source said.Monk, who skipped minicamp, is unhappy the Redskins have told him he'll come to training camp as a backup, behind Ricky Sanders and Desmond Howard.

CARLISLE, Pa. -- Cam Cameron knows that Desmond Howard isn't always a fast starter."He was the greatest thing since sliced bread coming out of high school and he didn't do anything for us [at Michigan] for two years," said Cameron, the Washington Redskins' new quarterback coach, who coached Howard at Michigan.Howard emerged in his final two years at Michigan, won the Heisman Trophy as a senior and the Redskins made him the fourth pick of the 1992 draft.His first two years with the Redskins were then a virtual replay of his first two years at Michigan.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Sharon Pratt Kelly, the mayor of Washington, recently called Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke a "billionaire bully."The Redskins have a different name for him: Mr. Cooke.When former quarterback Joe Theismann, one of the few players who was allowed to negotiate directly with the owner, was asked why he called him Mr. Cooke, he said, "Because he's Mr. Cooke."The fact that all the Redskins from coach Joe Gibbs on down refer to him as "Mr. Cooke" is an example of the combination of fear and respect with which the Redskins treat the owner.

CARLISLE, Pa. -- Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said yesterday that it's hard for him to understand Desmond Howard's holdout, and suggested he is near the point of thinking the Heisman Trophy winner should "come back next year."In a rare show of public frustration about a holdout, Gibbs said: "A lot of the stuff we're working on, he's never seen. How fast can he pick that up? I don't know. I definitely would say it reaches a point with some of those guys, I know coaches have faced this, where you say, 'I would like the guy to go inoperable for a year.

Desmond Howard has been called "Magic" for several years, a carry-over from his days as a basketball player at a recreation center in Cleveland. Now the University of Michigan flanker and kick returner is being called something else: the early-season favorite for the Heisman Trophy.A combination of Howard's incredible start, along with the recent free-fall of Houston quarterback and preseason favorite David Klingler, has sent the 5-foot-10, 176-pound junior hurtling into the spotlight.In fact, a different kind of stat has been derived at through Howard's brilliance: number of touchdowns in relation to the number of times touching the ball.
