Quarterback Mark Malone, released by the San Diego Chargers last week after they traded for Jim McMahon, was signed today by the New York Jets as a replacement for the injured Pat Ryan. The 30-year-old Malone, a 10-year veteran, played in 12 games last year for the Chargers, starting eight. He completed 147 of 272 passes for 1,580 yards with six touchdown passes and 13 interceptions.

The Chargers will announce today they have traded for Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback Mark Malone. Malone and officials from both teams talked freely about the deal Monday. The cost to the Chargers: Two reported eighth-round draft picks. One in 1988. One in 1989. The 1989 pick is conditional. "You get what you get," Steeler president Dan Rooney said. "It's fair." "For the price, we couldn't hardly turn him down," Jerry Rhome, the Chargers' offensive coordinator, said. Rhome knows all about that.

To say that Mark Malone is back may well be a befuddling statement to most of those who will watch him take the field tonight as the Chargers' starting quarterback in the exhibition opener against the Dallas Cowboys. "Back?" they will understandably wonder. "When, pray tell, has he been here before? What did he do? Drive through on the way to Mexico? Take his family to the zoo? Isn't he a Pittsburgh guy?"

Babe Laufenberg's Cinderella story with the San Diego Chargers is over. The Chargers decided against offering him a contract for 1989, team spokesman Bill Johnston said today. Laufenberg, 29, becomes a free agent again, a status he is familiar with after being released eight times by four teams since his 1983 NFL entry as a sixth-round draft choice of the Washington Redskins. "I am disappointed," Laufenberg said, "but I'm not bitter. In effect, they fired me. . . . But I didn't make the big plays last year.

You're Mark Malone and you're frustrated. You've spent 8 years trying to get out from under the shadow of Terry Bradshaw. When you finally do, you find yourself playing second fiddle to Babe Laufenberg. Babe Laufenberg? That's right. After being traded last spring from the Pittsburgh Steelers back home to San Diego, where you were a high school star in three sports, you naturally assumed you'd be the Chargers' starting quarterback, since the job was wide open.

Stop the presses! The Chargers signed a player Friday. On second thought, let the presses roll. The player the Chargers signed was quarterback Mark Malone, the lowest-rated quarterback in the AFC the past two years. It's not that Malone, 30, isn't a talented athlete. He was a high school All-American javelin thrower at El Cajon Valley High School. And he once caught a 90-yard touchdown pass from Terry Bradshaw while filling in at wide receiver for the Steelers.

Mark Malone grew up in San Diego and owns a custom home he helped build in the hills north of Pittsburgh. Last year he was the quarterback in the Pittsburgh Steelers' late-season victory over the Chargers at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium. Sunday he passed and ran the Chargers to a 20-14 win against the Steelers on the same field. "It felt very, very strange," Malone said.

A '60s counterculture hero named Abbie Hoffman once wrote an anti-capitalist treatise called "Steal This Book." If Hoffman were as tuned in to the NFL as he once was to the SDS, his advice to people thinking about attending today's Chargers-Steelers contest might be: "Don't Go To This Game." Or, perhaps, "Steal A Nap." This is, after all, a neo-classic matchup pitting the resistible force against the movable object.

Mark Malone, the Pittsburgh Steelers' starting quarterback last season, might be on his way home to play for the Chargers. Malone, who played for El Cajon Valley High School in the 1970s, was expected to arrive Monday night on a flight from Pittsburgh in what might be the forerunner of a trade to the Chargers. Officials for both teams who did not want to be identified said Malone was coming to San Diego to work out for the Chargers and undergo a physical examination.

The Chargers, who have thrown for fewer yards than any team in the NFL this year, will start Mark Malone in place of Babe Laufenberg at quarterback against the Dolphins Sunday in Miami. Laufenberg was hospitalized late Sunday after leaving the game against the Saints in the fourth quarter with rib damage. It was not immediately known how soon Laufenberg will be able to play again. He was still under observation Monday. And Charger Coach Al Saunders said he was doubtful for Miami.
