The Raiders said they were only checking out Ricky Hunley last week in case a need arose. One must have arisen because they signed him Tuesday. Hunley, the seventh overall choice in the 1984 draft, played three seasons with the Denver Broncos and two with the Phoenix Cardinals, who cut him this summer. He's an inside linebacker and the move suggests that Jackie Shipp's days may be numbered.

As he plunked himself on one of Dan Reeves' office chairs six weeks ago, Ricky Hunley half-knew what was about to happen. Hunley had seen the charts, the ones that hang inside the Denver Bronco meeting room. He could read the numbers, for goodness sakes. And if he could read them, so could everyone else. Tackles . . .

Call it combat basketball. Two USC assistant coaches, Ricky Hunley and Charles White, occasionally play full-court basketball at noon in USC's men's gym. Combined years in the NFL: 16. Get in the way of these two, and you get a ride in an ambulance. "Actually, just avoiding the collisions is a good workout," quipped 5-foot-5, 135-pound Olan Cuarto, who works in the university receiving office.
