On the Raiders' biggest defensive play of last week, cornerback Lionel Washington plucked the football out of the air and ran 31 yards to a touchdown. Hear the crowd cheer. Everybody saw the end of that fourth-quarter play against the San Diego Chargers, but not many highlight clips zeroed in on linebacker Rob Fredrickson, the man who created the opportunity for the interception by batting the ball loose from Shannon Mitchell, the intended receiver. That figures.

News flash to the Kansas City Chiefs: Raider outside linebacker Rob Fredrickson no longer plays like a rookie. For verification, consult the Seattle Seahawks. "One thing about Rob is that he's very intelligent and he learns from his mistakes," Raider linebacker coach Jim Haslett said Tuesday. "He can obviously run and can hit, but he also can smell plays out, once he's seen them." The Seahawks learned that Sunday night when they tried to test the first-round draft choice from Michigan State.

Rob Fredrickson, the Raiders' No. 1 draft choice, signed a lucrative long-term contract, but the deal is limited in its immediate value by the salary cap. Fredrickson will receive $4.875 million over five years, an average of $975,000 a season. But he will get nearly $2.5 million in the final two years of the contract. And that money is not guaranteed. The deal was agreed upon Tuesday, after a nine-day holdout. * Offensive tackle Greg Skrepenak suffered a sprained ankle Wednesday.

For Greg Townsend, it's the end of a long and distinguished career as a Raider. For Rob Fredrickson, it's only the beginning. Two players, one old and one young, one a defensive lineman too expensive to keep on the roster, the other a linebacker too valuable to keep out of camp, traded places Tuesday. The Raiders released the 32-year-old Townsend, an 11-year veteran, a two-time Pro Bowl pick and the AFC's all-time sack leader with 107.5, and signed Fredrickson, their No.

Fredrickson, the team's No. 1 draft choice out of Michigan State, reported nine days late because of contract negotiations. An outside linebacker in college, Fredrickson was being asked to move to the middle to back up second-year man Greg Biekert.
