Despite Andre Wadsworth's threat to sit out the season, the Arizona Cardinals are confident they will be able to sign their top draft pick.
Wadsworth, the No. 3 overall pick in the draft, told a Phoenix radio station there was a 50-50 chance he would sit out the season because of his contract dispute. The defensive end said he has already signed up for the fall semester at Florida State to complete his master's degree.Last week, Wadsworth rejected Arizona's $13.37 million offer that included an $8.1 million signing bonus. The offer was less than the $14.5 million that Charles Wood-son, the No. 4 overall pick, received from Oakland.
Wadsworth wants a bonus of at least $10 million and an average of $4 million to $6 million a year.
BEARS: Randal Hill, who led the New Orleans Saints in receptions and receiving yards last season, signed a one-year contract with Chicago.
COWBOYS: Cowboys defensive tackle Leon Lett sprained his left knee during a scrimmage against the New Orleans Saints at Shreveport, La.
COLTS: Linebacker Quentin Coryatt, who hasn't participated in contact drills since July 26 because of chest pains, hopes to return at full speed next week.
STEELERS: Receiver Jahine Arnold fractured his left collarbone when he collided with safety Lethon Flowers during practice.
PACKERS: Receiver Robert Brooks will miss the rest of the preseason after undergoing back surgery, but he could play in Green Bay's regular-season opener.
JETS: Jets coach Bill Parcells doesn't want a quarterback controversy on his team. But he may have fueled one by announcing that veteran Vinny Testaverde will probably start Saturday's exhibition game against Baltimore.
Glenn Foley, who was elevated to the first team when Neil O'Donnell was waived in June, also will see some action against the Ravens. But if Testaverde starts and plays well, it will certainly increase speculation about the QB job.
RAMS: Running back James Stewart, who hasn't played in a regular-season game since his rookie season in 1995, signed with the St. Louis Rams.
