For the first time in his career, defensive back Dave Waymer is fighting for playing time. Waymer, who signed as a Plan B free agent from the San Francisco 49ers in April, is a 13-year veteran and third on the AFC interception list with 48. This season, however, Waymer has been in only on special teams and short-yardage plays.

Dave Waymer, a veteran defensive back for the New Orleans Saints who was left unprotected under the NFL's Plan B free agent system, will sign with San Francisco unless the Saints want to match the 49ers' offer, he said today. "I told the Saints I wouldn't sign anything until I talked with them. They can't negotiate with me, but I'm going to see them today and if they want to match it, I'm staying," Waymer said.

It was pretty much business as usual Sunday in the first game after the NFL players strike--opportunistic offense and tough defense from San Francisco, self-destructive errors from New Orleans. New Orleans marched up and down the field, but never could crack the 49ers' goal line, and Morten Anderson, who kicked five field goals for the Saints, was wide on a 52-yard try with seven seconds left, allowing the 49ers to hold on for a 24-22 victory.

Raider defensive back David Waymer died suddenly Friday morning at his ranch in Mooresville, N.C., just outside Charlotte. He was 34. The official cause of death is not expected to be released for several days, but preliminary autopsy information said that traces of cocaine were found in Waymer's blood and urine. Pathologist Patrick Lance also discovered an artery leading to Waymer's heart that had narrowed, a hospital spokesman said. Waymer had always taken pride in his health and fitness.

Did someone say Max Montoya's reported $650,000-a-year contract makes him the highest-paid Raider offensive lineman ever? Actually, he'll make more than that. A source familiar with the details of the contract said it's a two-year, $1.45-million deal, composed of: --A $50,000 "relocation" bonus. --A $550,000 salary plus a $100,000 reporting bonus this season. --A $650,000 salary plus a $100,000 reporting bonus in 1991. On an annual basis, Montoya's contract beats the three-year, $1.

The Raiders need to upgrade their linebacking this season and recently acquired Joe Kelly is being counted on to step forward. Kelly, of Los Angeles Fremont High and the University of Washington, is in his eighth season in the NFL. He signed as a free agent from the New York Jets, with whom he played outside linebacker the last three seasons. "This is a great opportunity for me at this point in my career," Kelly said.
