Washington Redskin linebacker Matt Millen announced his retirement Tuesday to take a CBS football analyst position. Millen said he was "happy with the role" as a situation player for the Redskins last season, but had to look at the long term. Millen, 34, who played on Super Bowl winners with the Raiders and San Francisco 49ers before joining the Redskins as a free agent last season, said the decision was made all the more difficult because he felt he could still play.

Former Raider quarterback Steve Beuerlein, who led the Dallas Cowboys to a 20-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday, was also impressive last Sunday when he replaced injured Troy Aikman and rallied the Cowboys to a 24-21 upset of the previously unbeaten Washington Redskins. His performance came as no surprise to Matt Millen, a Redskin linebacker, and Beuerlein's former teammate with the Raiders. "When he came in, I told everyone that this guy's good," Millen said.

On the edge of a Civil War battlefield near the Washington Redskins' practice grounds, linebacker Matt Millen lives in a new two-story house in a quiet, upscale neighborhood where he starts every day the same way: First, with his wife, Patricia, he gets breakfast for Matthew, 9; Marcus, 6; Michalyn, 3, and Marianne, 1. Next, on his way to practice along curving, tree-lined Lee's Corner Road, he drops off Matt and Marky at Brookfield School.

The San Francisco 49ers had just put the finishing touches on a 10-0 start with a 31-7 walloping of Tampa Bay last Sunday, and linebacker Matt Millen was feeling pretty smug. Football is a funny game. There are team and individual battles to be won and lost. There are clear-cut victors. But the losers always have next week, or even next year. In the summer of 1988, for instance, Millen was not so happy.

Before the Raiders played the Chicago Bears Sunday, Bear Coach Mike Ditka was asked to name the one player he'd like to have back from his 1985 NFL champions. Unhesitatingly, he replied: "Willie Gault." A 1988 trade brought Gault to the Raiders in his prime, at 27, five years after the Bears drafted him in the first round. And Sunday's first quarter was barely under way when Raider owner Al Davis got another payoff.

Our Raiders in Wonderland series continues with Matt Millen, who woke up a civilian one day after nine seasons of colorful service and grieved . . . . . . all the way to Super Bowl XXIV. Talk about your magic touches. Al Davis has placed recent former employees on both sides: Denver assistant Mike Shanahan and Millen, now a San Francisco linebacker, making this the first year of the Ex-Raider Mystique.

The San Francisco 49ers Thursday signed Pro Bowl linebacker Matt Millen to a one-year contract, and Coach George Seifert said Millen would play Sunday when the 49ers meet the Buccaneers at Tampa, Fla. Millen, a 10-year veteran from Penn State, was released Sept. 4 by the Raiders. He worked out Wednesday with the 49ers, and his signing came as no surprise. To make room for Millen, the 49ers released second-year defensive lineman Kevin Lilly.

The Rams lost another one to the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday when their rivals from the north signed linebacker Matt Millen, who was released by the Raiders last week. The Rams were ready to sign Millen on Tuesday to play their unique nose tackle/linebacker position in the Eagle defense. Coach John Robinson said it was clear that Millen, when it came time to choose, wasn't ready to tackle a new position. "I think he expressed concern about it it being foreign or new," Robinson said.
