LaVar Arrington was one of the nation's highest-rated linebackers in the nation during his high school and college career. He was named Parade National Player of the Year after his senior year at North Hills Senior High School in Pittsburgh, and he was drafted No. 2 overall in the 2000 NFL Draft after his junior season at Penn State. But the former Washington Redskins star said he never would have reached those heights if he didn't know the fundamentals. That's why he's teamed up with Heads Up Football to help teach youth football players the proper way to play the game.

The Cleveland Browns are on the clock. Six days and counting before the NFL draft begins, they are still weighing the value of the No. 1 pick. Do they invest millions of dollars in defensive end Courtney Brown or pledge their future to linebacker LaVar Arrington? Take the best pass-rushing end to come out in the last 15 years? Or opt for the free-lancing linebacker who conjures up visions of Lawrence Taylor? Tough call. Intriguing decision. Ozzie Newsome wishes he had it to make, though.

First it was the Washington Redskins management endorsing Maryland's gambling expansion referendum. Now it's one of the team's most best-known former players. Lavar Arrington, the Redskins' former star linebacker, has cut a TV ad for the MGM-backed ballot committee supporting Question 7, touting the claimed benefits for Maryland in terms of jobs and investments here. With the Redskins' FedEx Field in Prince George's County in the background, Arrington tells viewers how much he hates losing -- and that Maryland is losing the jobs and money that leave the state when its residents gamble in other states such as West Virginia.

The game is over for the Sideline, a glitzy restaurant and sports bar in Largo owned by former Washington Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington. Owing millions of dollars to numerous creditors and faced with possible eviction from the Boulevard at the Capital Centre, the money-losing business closed abruptly Wednesday. Employees showed up at work to find movers clearing the place out, and they told television station WJLA (Channel 7) that they were angry that they weren't getting paid.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Excuse Washington Redskins linebacker Antonio Pierce if he sounds a little frustrated. He's not miffed that the team is 4-8, sits in last place in the NFC East and likely will miss the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season. No, Pierce is a little ticked off that even though the Redskins' defense is ranked second in the league in total yards surrendered and sixth in points allowed, people are still asking questions about who isn't on the unit rather than who is. "People still don't give our defense respect," Pierce said after the defense yielded just 145 yards to the New York Giants in Washington's 31-7 victory on Sunday.

ASHBURN, Va. - Lemar Marshall's face isn't plastered on the covers of video games. His No. 98 jersey isn't flying off the racks at a record pace. He's not even the most recognizable face on the Washington Redskins' defense. (That honor would belong to LaVar Arrington.) But in terms of impact and significance, it could be argued that no player on the defensive side of the ball may be as valuable as Marshall, who will likely succeed former teammate Antonio Pierce as the middle linebacker and mental anchor.

Washington Redskins rookie receiver Rod Gardner wasted no time getting down to business yesterday, taking part in both practice sessions just hours after signing a reported five year contract worth nearly $8 million. Gardner, the 15th overall pick in the April college draft, signed the deal just after midnight yesterday, joining the Redskins four days after camp opened Monday. Gardner, a 6-foot-2, 218-pound receiver who caught 166 passes in four years at Clemson for 2,498 yards, spent extra time with receivers coach Richard Mann between the morning and afternoon sessions to make up for lost time.
