The New York Knicks, substantially under the salary cap and seeking frontcourt help, last night tended an offer sheet to Washington Bullets forward Harvey Grant that team sources said was worth $12 million over six years.The Bullets have 15 days to match the offer, and general manager John Nash said he is "prepared to match any reasonable offer" to retain Grant, a restricted free agent who averaged 18 points and 6.8 rebounds last season. Nash said, however, that the Bullets had not received the offer sheet as of last night.

With today being the final day that NFL teams can sign restricted free agents to offer sheets, it is pretty much a formality that cornerback Cary Williams, who was given a second-round tender by the Ravens, will be back in Baltimore this season even though he has yet to sign his restricted tender and technically isn't under contract. Williams presumably hasn't signed his tender because he and the Ravens are in advanced talks on a contract extension, which is something team officials recently said was a priority this offseason.

Et cetera -- The Ravens officially signed cornerback Frank Walker to a two-year contract. He played for the Packers last season and is expected to compete for the team's third cornerback position.

As a Ravens executive, Phil Savage seemingly made all the right decisions. Now, in his first season as the Cleveland Browns' general manager, he is forcing the Ravens into a difficult one. The Ravens are evaluating the cost and consequences of their running back situation after the Browns signed backup Chester Taylor to a one-year offer sheet worth $3 million. That high offer, which indicates Taylor would compete for a starting job in Cleveland, would appear to be out of the Ravens' range for a backup, but team officials didn't dismiss the possibility of matching it to keep their restricted free agent.

Washington Capitals general manager David Poile said he was encouraged by his meeting with free agent Jeremy Roenick yesterday, but the team has not made an offer to the four-time NHL All-Star.The rights to Roenick, 26, were traded from the Chicago Blackhawks to the Phoenix Coyotes last week, postponing yesterday's meeting, which was scheduled before the trade. Signing Roenick, who twice has scored 50 goals and has eclipsed the 100-point mark three times in the past five seasons, is a top priority, Poile said, and he will continue to talk with Roenick's agent every day.However, the nature of yesterday's meeting was not necessarily to complete a deal.

The Washington Bullets yesterday re-signed veteran forward Harvey Grant but failed to satisfy first-round draft pick Tom Gugliotta, who rejected a five-year deal worth $10.7 million and likely will pursue a better offer from a European team.Once the Bullets chose to match the New York Knicks' six-year, $17.1 million offer sheet to Grant, the team's payroll climbed more than $2 million over the $14 million salary cap, leaving only a $500,000 exemption for Gugliotta, a 6-foot-10 forward from North Carolina State.

The Ravens have vowed to retain the services of restricted free-agent quarterback Eric Zeier, and the Atlanta Falcons decided to put Zeier's team to the test.Zeier signed a two-year, $2.6 million offer sheet from the Falcons yesterday. The deal includes a $2 million signing bonus and a base salary of $300,000 for the 1998 and 1999 seasons.The Ravens expect to receive the offer sheet from the NFL today, after which they will have one week to match Atlanta's offer.If they fail to do so, the Ravens will lose Zeier, a fourth-year backup passer out of Georgia whose stock rose last December, when he replaced benched starter Vinny Testaverde and led the Ravens to two victories in their last three games.

The battle over Harvey Grant took a new twist yesterday when the Washington Bullets accused the New York Knicks of tampering in offering the 6-foot-9 forward a six-year contract worth a reported $17.1 million.An NBA "special master," or arbitrator, will review the Bullets' charges in New York on July 14. That is only three days before the deadline the Bullets have to match the Knicks' offer to Grant, a four-year veteran and a restricted free agent.Bullets owner Abe Pollin would not elaborate last night on the tampering charge under advisement from team legal counsel Dave Osnos.
