Its ticket revenues had been returned to senders. Its potential mascot had died. No wonder J. Wayne Weaver nearly fainted when Commissioner Paul Tagliabue called him into a room in midafternoon here and handed him the keys to the wealthiest league in sports.

The Chargers traded holdout defensive end Lee Williams to the Oilers for rookie wide receiver Shawn Jefferson and the Oilers' first-round draft pick in 1992. Although he was scheduled to make $900,000 this year, Williams, a two-time Pro Bowl starter, refused to report. He said he was tired of being played out of position and being criticized by team officials. The Williams deal leaves the Chargers with only one remaining holdout, running back Marion Butts.
