The Raiders acquired cornerback Russell Carter Saturday from the New York Jets for a sixth-round choice in the 1989 draft. Carter, a first-round draft choice of the Jets in 1984, has been hampered by injuries during his career in New York. The Jets tried to trade Carter to the Indianapolis Colts in April, but Carter failed the Colts' physical. Carter suffered a dislocated left shoulder and missed the final three games of last season.

The last Raider holdout, strong safety Stacey Toran, signed his contact and joined the team Monday. Coach Mike Shanahan said he expects to activate Toran for Sunday's opener against the San Diego Chargers. Toran said he didn't want to talk about negotiations. In his absence, his place was taken by Zeph Lee, the former Trojan who was so impressive after being converted from halfback that the Raiders kept him and cut veteran Russell Carter.

The Raiders' search for an experienced strong safety ended Tuesday when they signed Mike Harden, recently released by the Denver Broncos. To make room for Harden, the Raiders put Tim Brown, who had knee surgery Monday, on injured reserve. Harden, 30, is a 10-year veteran who started all 16 of the Broncos' games last season. However, his salary, a reported $450,000, and Denver's draft of Arkansas safety Steve Atwater made Harden expendable.

In today's installment of Raider Cutdown Hijinks, we find the team re-acquiring Otis Wilson and getting set to bring a cornerback back, too. Anyone for a Mike Haynes resurrection? You've got it. "I'll be there tomorrow," Haynes said from his home Tuesday night. Haynes, the 36-year-old nine-time all-pro, was cut without ceremony Monday. His life as a civilian was brief but eventful. A few hours after he cleared waivers Tuesday, Al Davis called and invited him back.

The Raiders made a move today to bolster their special teams in advance of Sunday's playoffs-deciding game against the New York Giants. Backup safety Russell Carter is hobbled by a hamstring pull, so they placed him on injured reserve. To replace him on special teams, they waived, then re-signed backup wide receiver Timmie Ware, who had been on injured reserve. Ware was ineligible for activation unless he cleared waivers.

As his first official act, Jay Schroeder of the Raiders chose uniform number . . . Thirteen? "I'm not sure how good an idea that is," Coach Mike Shanahan said. But that's what Schroeder did. The No. 10 he wore in Washington is already taken by Chris Bahr, and the No. 7 he once wore belongs to Steve Beuerlein. "I'm not here to intrude on anyone," Schroeder said. "I wore 13 when I was playing baseball. I don't think it's unlucky. I kind of like it."

Raider safety Stacey Toran, a rising star whose low-key personality belied a future glistening with promise, died late Saturday night when his car hit a curb a block from his home in Marina del Rey. He was 27. Toran was alone. Police said there was no sign of excessive speeding, nor any skid marks to suggest reckless driving. However, said Sgt. Robert Topete of the Los Angeles Police Dept.: "It's apparent that he was not wearing his seat belt." Toran crashed his BMW 735i at 11:30 p.m.

Kammron Taylor scored 25 points and No. 3 Wisconsin survived a late charge by Greg Oden and No. 5 Ohio State to hold on for a 72-69 victory Tuesday night at Madison, Wis. The Badgers, 16-1 overall, 2-0 in the Big Ten Conference, used a 14-0 run midway through the second half to apparently take control. But the Buckeyes (13-3, 2-1) rallied and closed within 69-64 on a dunk by Oden with 37 seconds remaining.
