Matthew Slater bulked up in a big way the moment he entered the NFL. The New England Patriots handed the former UCLA player not just one Yellow Pages-sized binder but two — one for offense, the other for defense. "The first day in this building they gave me two playbooks," Slater said in a phone interview Thursday. "There was no, 'We'll give you one, then we'll give you the other.' It was, 'Here's both.' I felt like I was in a graduate studies program, making flash cards and everything.

The Rams continued to chip away at their long slate--but still no Slater--of training camp no-shows, signing linebacker Brett Faryniarz and nose tackle Alvin Wright to contracts on Thursday. Terms of the deals were not immediately available. Wright, the starting nose tackle who played for a base of $220,000 in 1989, signed a three-year deal at what is believed to be a substantial increase.

One of the fastest, most acrobatic athletes in Southern California still hasn't finalized his college choice. For months, Matt Slater of Anaheim Servite High has been weighing his options: Ivy League vs. Pacific 10 Conference. Last week, he broke his silence, telling friends that Dartmouth was his likely choice. But he quickly made a strategic retreat, letting it be known that UCLA is still in the running.

The San Francisco 49ers have scored at least 40 points in their last three games, have produced 156 more points than the Rams this season and have defeated the Rams six consecutive times, the average margin of victory being 16.5 points. But after the Rams' first offensive play against the 49ers today in Anaheim Stadium, the scoreboard will reflect a significant number of a different sort. For the 246th time in his 18-year career, offensive tackle Jackie Slater will take the field for the Rams.

Right tackle Jackie Slater cracked the Rams' starting lineup in 1979, beginning a reign that would span 15 years and three head coaching changes. But Slater practiced with the second-string offense during Monday's training camp workout in an apparent changing of the guard at right tackle. Darryl Ashmore, a third-year player who started seven games last season in place of an injured Slater, practiced with the first string, an indication that the team might be moving Slater to the bench.

Two guys named Jack, traveling the same route, are headed for a small town in Ohio named Canton. If they begin in Los Angeles and pass through Anaheim before turning east, how long will it take them to reach the doorstep of the Pro Football Hall of Fame? Answer: One will take 11 years longer than the other. This question will never wind up on the NFL's Wonderlich intelligence test, because no one, not even the Rhodes scholar Ivy League quarterback, would be able to figure it.

Los Angeles Rams offensive tackle Jackie Slater ended his four-week holdout today and began preparations for his 15th season with the team. The Rams would not say whether Slater had successfully renegotiated his contract or whether the six-time Pro Bowl player would be fined. The NFL maximum fine for a holdout is $1,500 per day. Slater, 36, was upset with his reported $550,000 salary for the 1990 season.

It was another big day for the Rams. The old Los Angeles Rams. Their first in many years. Two of their finest players, defensive end Jack Youngblood and offensive tackle Jackie Slater, were voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday as members of the seven-man class of 2001. They joined guard Tom Mack and running back Eric Dickerson to make it four Rams in two years. It was also a great day for USC.

It's still nice to know there are sportscasters who get prime jobs the old-fashioned way--they earn them. Jackie Slater is a case in point. If he had been a quarterback, he may have gone straight to the "Monday Night" booth. Boomer Esiason did. So did Joe Namath. John Elway could have. NBC handed Joe Montana a prime studio job even though he had no broadcasting experience. But Slater was an offensive lineman.

The wife of a retired St. Louis Ram football player who was mistaken for a theft suspect at South Coast Plaza agreed to drop a civil rights lawsuit after the Police Department's chief offered an apology, attorneys said Wednesday. Annie Slater, who is African American and married to Jackie Slater, contended she was wrongly detained because of her race while shopping last year.

St. Louis Ram offensive lineman Jackie Slater, one of only four players to play 20 seasons in the NFL, told a Meridian, Miss., television station that he was retiring. WTOK-TV reported that the 41-year-old Slater, the league's oldest player, was making official his plans to retire. Slater played his entire NFL career with the Rams. Because of injuries, Slater played in only one game during the 1995 season.

Before he cut out for Indianapolis, Eric Dickerson, presumably, cleaned out his closet, his locker and packed his belongings--everything he would need for his new career. Except for one thing. He forgot to take his right tackle. Jackie Slater probably wouldn't fit underneath the seat in front of him or in the overhead rack. Jackie goes 6 feet 4 inches and 275 pounds. He is built along the general lines of the battleship Missouri. He looks like something that just arrived escorted by tugboat.

The thing I like about the Rams' tackle, Jackie Slater, is, he always reminds me of this patient old mechanic who comes to fix the wiring or the plumbing. You know the type. He comes in, drops his tool box, wanders over to check the problem, see whether it calls for a wrench, hammer, or simply needs to be plugged in where someone forgot. He's as dependable as the tide, unexcitable as a saint and as meticulous as a surgeon. Nothing surprises Jackie Slater. Nothing upsets him.

FLYING INTO THE WIND It wasn't quite like outrunning the wind, but it was close enough for Raiders' fleet receiver Raghib (Rocket) Ismail. Sprinting into a New Jersey wind that was gusting up to 40 m.p.h., Ismail was able to chase down a high toss from quarterback Jeff Hostetler, turning it into a 40-yard touchdown reception. Ismail was open down the middle, so the only question was: Could Hostetler throw it that far into the gale? Yes, so far that Ismail needed the wind to slow it down for him.
