Don't look for a $3,000 suit or slicked-back hair. Don't expect to hear empty flattery or bragging about an extensive list of superstar clients. None of that is Joe Linta. "If you met him and he told you he was a sports agent, you wouldn't believe him," says recently retired Ravens center Matt Birk, a client of Linta's for all 15 of his NFL seasons. Linta built his Connecticut-based agency around guys like Birk, who were drafted in the later rounds and became excellent players at unglamorous positions.

I have a new theory about Terrell Owens. The NFL's terrible toddler not only has the ability to make an ass of himself under almost any circumstance, but he also possesses special psychic power to draw other - seemingly reasonable - people into his web of idiotic intrigue. How else do you explain respected Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter suddenly popping up Monday and threatening to look into the possibility that the Philadelphia Eagles violated federal antitrust laws when they suspended T.O. and made it clear that he would not play again this season?

The Duane Starks era began with a hug from tight end Eric Green.It was a symbolic gesture in several ways, because the Ravens are glad and need to have their No. 1 draft pick in training camp.Starks, a former University of Miami cornerback, ended his 16-day holdout by attending the second half of the morning session and the entire second practice yesterday at Western Maryland College.Minutes before the 5-foot-10, 170-pound Starks ran onto the practice field, he and agent Drew Rosenhaus signed a four-year contract with the Ravens that will pay him nearly $7 million, including a $3.1 million signing bonus and a $350,000 roster bonus in 1999.

Peyton Manning is signed. Ryan Leaf and Charles Woodson && are signed. All the big names in this year's NFL rookie class are signed and in camp.For that matter, 26 of the 30 first-round picks are signed and in camp.Meanwhile, the Ravens, who could complicate a summer camp sing-along, are still haggling with a holdout.They should be embarrassed that their top pick, Duane Starks, isn't signed by now.Sure, Starks' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, deserves some of the blame.But the Ravens deserve as much, if not more, for not finding some way, any way, to get the deal done.

Ravens top draft pick Duane Starks said yesterday that he is prepared to hold out indefinitely.Starks, a cornerback out of the University of Miami and the No. 10 pick overall, missed the third day of training camp and did not report with the veterans to Western Maryland College.The sides have traded proposals, with the Ravens offering a multi-year package worth nearly $8.5 million. Drew Rosenhaus, Starks' agent, said the deal doesn't hinge on getting voidables, and Ozzie Newsome, the Ravens' vice president of player personnel, said Rosenhaus's last proposal did not contain a voidable clause.

He's going to sign in time.Barely.Had Duane Starks' pointless holdout lasted any longer, his value to the Ravens this season would have begun to diminish. A rookie cornerback needs training camp.Now that he is going to sign, he has four exhibition games and month of practices to prepare for the regular season -- enough time to make up most of what he missed.It's all up to Starks now, in other words.If he proves to be the quality defensive back the Ravens say he is, he won't suffer for having held out of training camp for 16 days.

It ended without so much as a whimper from the discharged Terrell Owens or a wail of relief from the Philadelphia Eagles. Once the bitter confrontation between the Pro Bowl wide receiver and the NFC champions finally ended yesterday on an arbitrator's opinion, it was hard to find a winner. Unless you consider the NFL the ultimate beneficiary in this sordid ordeal. When arbitrator Richard Bloch upheld the Eagles' four-game suspension of Owens and said they were justified in sending him home for the rest of the season, it strengthened the league's disciplinary system.
