Russell Maryland of the University of Miami won the Outland Trophy as the country's best collegiate lineman Wednesday, an award few believed he could achieve five years ago as an overweight defensive tackle with little promise. "Russell was another Refrigerator," said James Maryland, his father. Maryland was determined to change his rather large state. "I realized I had to start training if I was going to make it," he said after Wednesday's Outland announcement at the L.A. Athletic Club.

Forget the eagerly awaited matchup between last year's rookie sensations Randy Moss and Charles Woodson. Veteran defensive tackle Russell Maryland knew the key to the Minnesota Viking-Oakland Raider game was the amount of pressure he'd get on 36-year-old Randall Cunningham. And, Maryland put enough pressure on Cunningham--and made several other big plays--to help the Raiders to a stunning 22-17 victory Sunday over the Vikings, an offensive powerhouse suddenly struggling to score.

Searching for instant impact on a defense that was down, out and not exactly loaded with pass-rushing talent last season, the Rams have underlined University of Miami defensive tackle Russell Maryland as the player they expect to draft with the No. 5 choice overall in today's NFL draft. Unless they trade for Detroit Lion nose tackle Jerry Ball. Or unless Maryland is taken, possibly No. 1 by the Dallas Cowboys. Or unless they take Tennessee offensive tackle Antone Davis.

Pro Bowl cornerback Eric Davis is leaving the Bay area, but defensive lineman Russell Maryland may soon be arriving. Davis, a free agent, left the San Francisco 49ers late Tuesday to sign with the Carolina Panthers. Maryland, a Dallas Cowboy, has been made an offer by the Oakland Raiders that the Cowboys can't counter because they don't have enough room under the salary cap. "Russell feels tremendous sadness to be leaving Dallas," agent Leigh Steinberg told the Dallas Morning News.

One of the fiercest battles in the joint training camp at Austin, Tex., has been between guard Steve Wisniewski of the Raiders and tackle Russell Maryland of the Dallas Cowboys. The two scuffled Tuesday and were battling again Wednesday. Although no punches were thrown, Wisniewski clearly won most of the exchanges. "Wis is a Pro Bowl player who's taken his game to another level," Raider Coach Art Shell said. "The work has been good for both sides, though.

The Raiders and Dallas Cowboys expected things to get physical when their joint practice opened Tuesday at Austin, Tex., and no one was disappointed. Dallas defensive tackle Russell Maryland and Raider guard Tom Wisniewski got into a shoving match during a pass-blocking drill and players from both teams rushed to the scene, drawing cheers from the crowd of 1,800. The players were separated by their teammates. "It was like two roosters getting after each other," Raider Coach Art Shell said.

As college juniors 12 months ago, nine of the best football players in America quit school to dominate the class of 1990 in the NFL draft. Then in Los Angeles Saturday night, the apparent leader of the 1991 class, Raghib (Rocket) Ismail of Notre Dame, jumped to the Canadian Football League, signing a four-year contract with the Toronto Argonauts for an unprecedented, guaranteed $4.5 million a year. That ruined the 1991 draft--yes or no?

The Rams, being careful not to dream for things that could not come true, never planned on selecting Notre Dame cornerback Todd Lyght in Sunday's NFL draft. Sure, they came to a consensus that he was the player who best fit their vast needs, that if they had the No. 1 pick in the draft, Lyght would be their man. But, staying realistic, they didn't have the No. 1 pick, they had the No. 5, and that meant putting Lyght out of their minds.

Pro Bowl cornerback Eric Davis is leaving the Bay area, but defensive lineman Russell Maryland arrives today. Davis, a free agent, left the San Francisco 49ers late Tuesday to sign with the Carolina Panthers. Maryland agreed to join the Oakland Raiders because the Dallas Cowboys didn't have room for him under the salary cap. With Dallas' dollars either tied up in its superstars or earmarked to re-sign other players, Maryland agreed Wednesday to a six-year, $19-million contract with the Raiders.

It was 4 a.m., and Ernie Zampese, the Dallas Cowboys' offensive coordinator, was already at work. Zampese, who rejected John Shaw's offer to become the Rams' head coach before the hiring of Rich Brooks earlier this year, prefers to toil in anonymity, a task that now requires a middle of the night wake-up call. "Around here, if we win, we didn't win by enough," Zampese said. "If we lose, it's the end of the world. I have never been in a place that is so intense.
