D.J. Dozier, the former running back from Penn State, could have been the latest of the two-sport athletes to hit the top level in baseball and football, but the lure of football was too great. Dozier will report to Minnesota Vikings this week when the Mets' triple-A Tidewater affiliate plays its final game. The Mets had hoped Dozier would commit to playing the rest of the baseball season. If he had, the Mets might have purchased his contract and promoted him to the majors.

The penny-pinching Padres rang up the first transaction of what is expected to be an off-season clearance sale Monday by dealing All-Star shortstop Tony Fernandez to the New York Mets. In return, the Padres received right-handed pitcher Wally Whitehurst, who was 3-9 for the Mets last season, and outfielder D.J. Dozier, who hit .197 in only 45 major league games. The Padres will also receive a Rookie League-level player to be named in December.

The Minnesota Vikings and their first-round draft pick, Penn State running back D. J. Dozier, have agreed in principle to a multi-year contract, the National Football League club announced Tuesday. Dozier, who led the Nittany Lions in rushing for four years and helped them to the 1986 national championship, is the first No. 1 or No. 2 selection to agree to terms, Viking General Manager Mike Lynn said. The tentative agreement calls for a two-year contract plus an option year.

Quarterbacks Bobby Hebert of the New Orleans Saints and Steve Beuerlein of the Dallas Cowboys and seven other players have sued the NFL for unrestricted free agency.
