ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins' much-maligned defense may be older, but is it truly wiser?On Thursday, the Redskins hired 72-year-old Bill Arnsparger as their "defensive specialist." And yesterday, they announced the signing of Kurt Gouveia, a 35-year-old linebacker who started for the club's last playoff team in 1992. He replaces Malcolm Hamilton, a second-year player who was placed on injured reserve with a bulging disk."Talk about your revolving door," said Gouveia, who has played for Philadelphia and San Diego since leaving the Redskins five years ago. "They have a bunch of young guys and what they need now is somebody to guide them."

The Washington Redskins are looking for a few cheap men.Even after shipping out 15 veterans who made almost $19 million last season, the Redskins are having problems squeezing their roster under the new $34.6 million salary cap.They still must cut about $1.6 million from their payroll to have enough to sign their rookies, including their top draft choice, quarterback Heath Shuler.General manager Charley Casserly called the Redskins the "first victim of the salary cap," but that was before commissioner Paul BTC Tagliabue issued a gag order forbidding team executives from criticizing the cap.Meanwhile, the head of the NFL Players Association, Gene Upshaw, has been defending the cap. He notes that while the Redskins -- who spent $52 million on their player payroll last year -- can't spend as much as they used to, several teams, including the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, are spending more this year than they spent in the past.

SEATTLE -- The Washington Redskins are running out of football players. They're now looking for heroes."I think it's taking heroic efforts on some of our guys' part to even go out there and bail us out. It's going to take heroes, finding some way to scrap [to win]," a drained coach Joe Gibbs said yesterday after his battered team fought its way to a 16-3 victory over the Seattle Seahawks at the Kingdome.A victory over the 1-8 Seahawks won't qualify for any awards unless the Redskins are trying to revive "M*A*S*H," but Gibbs called it an "epic struggle."

MINNEAPOLIS -- If it had been a prize fight, Mark Rypien would have lost by a TKO.The Washington Redskins quarterback hit the deck at least 10 times even though he was sacked only twice yesterday in the 15-13 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.After the game, he limped to his locker with a bandage around his knee and his elbow.But Rypien isn't the type to criticize the offensive linemen, who had all kinds of problems handling the Minnesota defensive linemen.The linemen didn't criticize Rypien for the two passes that were run back for touchdowns in the fourth quarter in Phoenix and he returned the favor.
