FROSTBURG -- As Washington Redskins general manager Charley Casserly beamed yesterday while formally announcing the signing of Michael Westbrook, the wide receiver's agent, Steve Zucker, said jokingly, "I didn't know Charley knew how to smile."Casserly hasn't had much of a chance to smile as the holdout by the Redskins' top draft pick dragged on for 26 days.Casserly made up for lost time when Westbrook signed a seven-year, $18.02 million contract at a news conference."We're thrilled that Michael's going to be with us for many, many years," Casserly said.

LANDOVER - The Ravens take their Jekyll and Hyde offense to FedEx Field in Landover today in search of a thrill, a touchdown and another victory. Finishing off an arduous stretch of road games - five in seven weeks - the 5-1 Ravens will attempt to vent their frustrations against the 4-2 Washington Redskins. Theirs is a frustration born of an inability to dent the end zone the past two weeks, when nine field goals by Matt Stover netted a pair of wins. The fact that Stover has scored the team's past 31 points is not lost on quarterback Tony Banks.

What's new: It looks as if Gus Frerotte will be throwing to three 30-something wide receivers Sunday against Tampa Bay. Willie "Flipper" Anderson, 31, is expected to see his first extensive duty as a third-down receiver since being signed Oct. 7; Bill Brooks, 32, will start in place of injured Michael Westbrook; Henry Ellard, 35, is the other starter.Next game: Just when quarterback Trent Dilfer and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-9) thought they had figured out how to win in the NFL, they threw in a clunker last week in a 24-0 loss to Carolina.

Leslie Shepherd has long been known for his angry outbursts in the Washington Redskins' locker room but his mini-tirade last week at Redskin Park will go down as one of his better performances.The fifth-year wide receiver started out questioning coach Norv Turner's failure to get the ball to him more this season (11 catches in three games) and wound up criticizing the Denver Broncos' tackling ability, the play of Broncos starting right cornerback Darrien Gordon and the performance last week of Seattle Seahawks starting left cornerback Shawn Springs.

Looking back may help the Washington Redskins pay attention to the tasks facing them today.As the team opens its season against the New York Giants at 1 p.m. at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J., many of the Redskins may be reliving the humiliations of Dec. 13, 1997.That was the day Washington entered Giants Stadium with a chance to win the NFC East crown and left with the certainty of being home for Christmas. More galling than the score -- a 30-10 loss -- was the way the game unraveled even before the second half.

America continues its inexorable drift toward jockocracy. Our willingness to grovel for professional athletes -- and their agents -- has sunk to depths disturbingly below the pathetic.Only recently did Baltimore Ravens linebacker Peter Boulware accept a six-year, $18.5 million contract after rejecting it only days before. Mind you, Boulware is a rookie. He has not played one down of professional football. There is no assurance he will make it in the National Football League. His salary would be laughable, if it weren't such an egregious obscenity.

Dorian Brew wasted no time announcing his presence on the Ravens' roster, and the quiet rookie cornerback did not need to speak to make himself known.Back on Oct. 29, when the Ravens signed him off the Kansas City Chiefs' practice squad, Brew turned coach Ted Marchibroda's head in his first practice by running step-for-step with veteran wide receiver Michael Jackson in one-on-one drills.From there, Brew moved onto his first NFL game against Jacksonville on Nov. 10, when he showed impressive speed on special teams and recorded a tackle in that role.
