He knew the first day, in Westchester, Pa., at training camp in July. It was a little faster, but the players were the same size and nobody hit him any harder than he had been hit in college. "You don't ever get confident at training camp, especially when you're an undrafted free agent," Philadelphia Eagle defensive end Mike Chalenski said. "They throw you into the fire, right off the bat, but I felt pretty good because I had played against some of those guys."

Former Cleveland Brown linebacker Jamir Miller has been advised to retire by a doctor who examined the free agent's surgically repaired Achilles' tendon. "He got a very discouraging medical report," Miller's agent, Leigh Steinberg, said Monday. "The Achilles' injury is very serious. He's seriously considering retirement and is in the last stages of making a decision."

Bruce Walker, a UCLA nose guard, was suspended for a year, and linebacker Jamir Miller must skip the Bruins' season-opener Sept. 4 against California because of recent criminal problems, school officials announced Monday. Walker, who has one year of eligibility remaining, will be allowed to redshirt and return for the 1994 football season if he stays out of trouble, UCLA Coach Terry Donahue said.

The Cleveland Browns' defense suffered a major blow Saturday with the loss of Pro Bowl linebacker Jamir Miller, possibly for the season, to a torn right Achilles' tendon. "Right now I don't know what the severity is," Browns' Coach Butch Davis said after Cleveland's 27-15 exhibition victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis. "It's very disappointing. Certainly his performance is going to be missed. We've got three weeks, three preseason games to try and find an answer."

As a longtime Southern California sports fan, I was appalled at the lenient penalties given to Bruce Walker and Jamir Miller by UCLA. The inappropriateness of the action taken by UCLA only serves to reinforce to young men that athletic programs and game attendance are more important than dealing in a firm manner with antisocial, criminal behavior. Jamir Miller's excuse that he wasn't involved directly, but that the stolen property was stored in his apartment, is akin to saying that he was an accomplice to murder but didn't pull the trigger.

Linebacker Jamir Miller is eligible to play Saturday against Nebraska after a one-game suspension imposed by the university following his no-contest plea to charges of receiving stolen property. Miller led the Bruins in sacks last season. Watching UCLA lose to California, 27-25, on Sept. 4, he said, was difficult. "I'm from Oakland, and I probably know half the players on the team, so I'm going to hear about it," said Miller, as the Bruins prepare to play the Cornhuskers at the Rose Bowl.

UCLA defensive back Marvin Goodwin has joined teammate Jamir Miller on the list of those deciding to forgo collegiate eligibility to make themselves available for the NFL draft. Other underclassmen who made such announcements Monday included Alabama receiver David Palmer, third in the Heisman Trophy voting, and Auburn tailback James Bostic, the leading rusher in the Southeastern Conference. Monday was the deadline for underclassmen to declare themselves eligible for the pro draft.

Jamir Miller sees a time when the Cleveland Browns will be winners instead of winless. The Browns looked at Miller and saw the linebacker they want to anchor their defense. The result was that Miller and the Browns agreed Friday to a four-year contract extension worth about $18.3 million, including $6 million in bonuses. Miller, a first-round draft pick from UCLA in 1994, originally signed a one-year deal with Cleveland in May after five years with the Arizona Cardinals.

The Arizona Cardinals Friday signed linebacker Jamir Miller, the last first-round draft choice to sign, and added veteran linebacker Wilber Marshall. Miller, the No. 10 selection overall out of UCLA, was the lone Cardinal holdout after second-round pick Chuck Levy reported Wednesday. Marshall, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, played under Buddy Ryan with the Chicago Bears in 1984-88 and with the Houston Oilers last season, but was hampered by a hamstring injury.

The key defensive players at USC and UCLA obviously impressed NFL scouts. Willie McGinest, the big, strong Trojan defensive end, was the fourth player chosen in the draft, by the New England Patriots, and Miller, the Bruins' big, quick junior linebacker, was picked by Arizona 10th. As expected, another Southland star, wide receiver Johnny Morton of USC, also was drafted in the first round. Morton, picked by the Detroit Lions, was the 21st choice.

In November, Jamir Miller was certain. "I'm going to stay in school," he said. In December, he was less certain. "Things change," he said. Tuesday, he was certain again, saying that he would leave UCLA and enter the NFL draft. Miller, an outside linebacker coming off his junior season with the Bruins, has been their leading sacker the last three seasons.

Operation Bruin Storm went into enemy action Saturday night. Little resistance was encountered. Now unquestionably Best of the West in a 1993 college football season full of surprises, a UCLA team that keeps getting better and better week after week put the big squash to previously undefeated Arizona, 37-17, leaving the self-congratulatory Operation Desert Storm defense as flattened as a sand dune beneath a tank. Arizona went down harder and faster than Tommy Morrison.

There's a good chance that a look at the UCLA-Brigham Young film will cause Washington coaches to throw out any idea of trying to block Jamir Miller with one man. BYU tried it, and he had 4 1/2 of UCLA's 10 sacks of Cougar quarterback John Walsh in a 68-14 victory. Trying to keep Miller at bay with one man has become the exception, rather than the rule.
