THE SIDELINES : Three Sign Pro Football Contracts

August 03, 1989| From Times wire services

Dotted lines are being signed on contracts as pro football training camps get into full swing.

Green Bay Packers linebacker Tim Harris signed a two-year contract worth $1.185 million and ended his 11-day holdout today. Harris, the Packers' leader in sacks the last three seasons, called a press conference today to announce his signing. The Packers do not announce the signing of veteran players. He was to participate in his first practice this afternoon.

Tight end Keith Jennings of Clemson, a fifth-round pick, signed his contract and reported to the Dallas Cowboys camp at Thousand Oaks. Jennings had reported earlier but was sent home because he was overweight. He lost 15 pounds and returned Wednesday.

Running back Albert Bentley, who threatened to retire unless he saw more playing time, signed a three-year contract extension today with the Indianapolis Colts. Bentley, second in the NFL in all-purpose yards two years ago, was used sparingly last year as a backup to All-Pro Eric Dickerson and carried the ball only 45 times for 230 yards, his fewest in four years in the league.
