On a hot Wednesday afternoon, Shawn Miller was doing just what a lot of folks in Ogden, Utah, figured he would end up doing. Not much. A spit here, a yawn there, his 6-foot 4-inch, 255-pound frame (complete with beard and pony tail) operating on snooze control. The law-abiding citizens of Ogden didn't expect much more from the town bad boy, the leader of the high school pack dubbed The Rowdy Yates. "Drinking, fighting, I didn't have any regard for anyone or authority," Miller said.

What soldier wants to go to war with Mom? It's not tough, or particularly cool. And it doesn't exactly fulfill the Spartan vision of the warrior ethos, especially if Mom starts ordering you to finish your green beans or clean up your barracks, or suddenly whips out some embarrassing childhood photos. No wonder Chandra and LaShawn Miller, specialists with the D.C. Army National Guard, balked when their mother announced that she was transferring to their unit, the 547th Transportation Company, and deploying to Iraq with them.

Under the terms of the restricted free agency plan, the Rams can protect 37 of their 52 players under contract at the end of the season. Those not protected can negotiate with any other NFL team until April 1 and not be subjected to compensation rules.

Starting nose tackle Charles DeJurnett, a 10-year veteran, ended his holdout Monday and signed with the Rams. The 34-year-old DeJurnett, who had 28 tackles last season, was expected to join the team for practice today at the Cal State Fullerton camp. The Rams had 80 players in uniform Monday for two sessions on their first day of practice for veterans. But the Rams' first-round draft pick, Mike Schad, and five veterans are still holding out.

While Mike Piel's agent haggled with the Rams over signing bonuses and deferred payments, Mike Piel was hanging 10 very large toes down at Trestles in north San Diego County. "I've been surfing all summer," Piel said. "It's good for the hips." On Friday, Piel, a defensive tackle, caught the last wave in and became the Rams' 14th and last draft choice to come to terms when he signed a three-year deal. Let's just say the surf's always up when Piel is in the water.
