The Rams acquired free agent wide receiver Jessie Hester on Monday. Hester, a former Raider who caught 64 passes for 835 yards with Indianapolis last season, agreed to a one-year contract with the Rams, who will also have an option on Hester's services in 1995. Hester was a first-round draft choice of the Raiders in 1985 before being traded to Atlanta in 1988. The Falcons released him in 1989, and after signing with Indianapolis in 1990, he went on to average 57 catches a season with the Colts.

Quarterback Chris Miller tried to clear the air with Ram players Wednesday after his critical comments about wide receiver Jessie Hester angered some teammates. In an interview Monday, Miller targeted Hester for dropping two passes and running the wrong route in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the San Diego Chargers. Miller, who was intercepted four times Sunday, was asked Wednesday about the team's reaction to his comments, and he pointed a finger at the reporters. "I'll just leave it alone," he said.

Jamie Kimmell, the Syracuse linebacker the Raiders drafted in the fourth round, arrived at the team's training camp in Oxnard Monday, leaving the No. 1 pick, Jessie Hester, the last absentee. Hester is expected to be in soon. "We think we're going to get it done today or tomorrow," said Hester's agent, Mike Blatt, from Stockton Monday. "We're that close. We have airplane tickets for him." Hester has been staying in a hotel in Stockton.

Jessie Hester, the Raiders' No. 1 draft choice, made the unofficial opening day lineup Thursday. Such calls are subject to recall, but it will take some kind of reversal. "The way things are going, he's got a good chance (to start)," Coach Tom Flores said. "He's getting plenty of experience. "One thing about it, he's played against some of the best teams. He played against San Francisco's No. 1s (three catches). He played against the Redskins' No.

Starting wide receiver Jessie Hester was unable to practice Friday because of back spasms, but Coach Chuck Knox said he hopes treatment will allow Hester to play Sunday against the Saints. If he is unable to play, rookie Isaac Bruce will start, Knox said. Knox designated running back David Lang, tackle Jackie Slater, defensive tackle Sean Gilbert and center Bern Brostek as inactive for the game.

Beset by an 0-3 exhibition record and a rising tide of problems--try quarterback and defensive line--that has pretty much washed out what remained of preseason optimism, the Raiders made some little moves Sunday. They traded their drop-prone speedster, Jessie Hester, to the Atlanta Falcons for an undisclosed 1989 draft choice, thought to be a No. 4 or 5. Since Hester was a No. 1 in 1984, this was something less than a coup. They named Steve Beuerlein to open the season at quarterback.

Penalties, sacks, a punchless offense and poor field position continued to plague the Rams in their 16-6 loss to the Raiders Monday night at Anaheim Stadium. Rams Coach John Robinson won't openly admit there is anything lacking, but the NFC Western Division champions were victimized by six penalties, an identical number of sacks and an offense that failed to produce a touchdown for the second time this season.

Ram receiver Jessie Hester watches the hazing of rookie receiver Isaac Bruce every day during training camp and can't help but smile. It's a rite of passage in the NFL, one that every receiver must endure. Twice a day, Bruce is schooled by Ram cornerbacks such as Todd Lyght and Robert Bailey on the art of running pass routes, the bump-and-run, when to make a cut. They can be painful, frustrating lessons, as Hester discovered nine years ago as a rookie with the Raiders.

In Denver it's "Raider Week II, The Away Game," so the Broncos have put away all complaints for the moment. This has allowed for the rehabilitation of the reputation of a certain Raider whom they once characterized as a low-down, no-good, dastardly, dirty, cheating, intimidating, eye-gouging, late-hitting, holding, jive-talking fill-in-your-own-noun. "Me?" Lester Hayes squealed.

The Jet is back, even if the Raiders seem to be hiding the fact by keeping him in the hangar. Nevertheless, within two or three series of the opening kickoff, the doors open and out whooshes Jessie Hester. Ten catches in 5 games, a 23.6-yards-a-catch average and 3 touchdowns, including game winners against the San Diego Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs--that's what Al Davis had in mind when he made Hester the Raiders' No.
