The Galaxy picked midfielder Andy Riemer in the first round of Major League Soccer's supplemental draft Tuesday.

Pete Rozelle, commissioner of the National Football League, announced a one-week postponement Thursday of the supplemental draft for wide receiver Cris Carter of Ohio State and running back Charles Gladman of Pittsburgh so that the players may try to work out an arrangement with the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. to regain their eligibility. The draft was scheduled for today, but Rozelle decided to put it off after the NCAA reinstated Pitt defensive back Terryl Austin late Wednesday.

Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor, a controversial Oakland Raiders-type speedster straight out of central casting, is now an actual member of the Silver & Black. The Raiders selected Pryor in the third round of the NFL's supplemental draft Monday, giving up their corresponding pick in the 2012 draft for a raw player with outstanding size and freakish speed. The 6-foot-5, 232-pound quarterback ran the 40-yard dash in under 4.4 seconds at a workout Saturday, the kind of time reserved for only the quickest receivers and running backs.

Now, NFL teams can feel USC's pain. Both have been let down by Manuel Wright. Wright, the former Trojan defensive tackle eligible for selection in Thursday's supplemental draft, put on a lackluster performance Friday during a private workout at USC before scouts from virtually every NFL team. "It was a microcosm of what he did in college," one team executive said. "Some good, some bad." Even though Wright ran a 4.

Steve Rucchin left the University of Western Ontario last spring with Recent Grad Syndrome--a vague feeling of uneasiness caused by the nearly $25,000 in student loans hanging over his head. That doesn't take into account the debt he expected to start piling up soon in medical school. But sometime this week, against all odds, Rucchin will fulfill his longshot destiny and officially become an NHL player--and a rather well-off one at that.

He's young, he's hot, he's today. He has a diamond in his left ear and an avant-garde 'do, with the sides shaved and the hair upright on top. The effect is of a bowling ball with a brush cut, or a younger Don King. He's Bobby Humphrey, long-sought answer to the Broncos' prayers, as they were to his. With 1,150 yards in his rookie season, despite not having started until Week 5, he has just posted the third-best Bronco rushing total of all time. He is already their No. 11 career rusher.

The Tennessee Titans are ready to make Chris Johnson the highest-paid running back in NFL history — all he has to do is show up at camp. General Manager Mike Reinfeldt told the Associated Press on Thursday that Johnson's agent was the first person they called once the NFL's lockout was lifted. The Titans reworked Johnson's contract a year ago to give him more money in 2010 and promised to talk to him again a year later. But the Titans want Johnson in training camp before completing an extension.

Reporting from Miami Beach — The circus came to South Beach on Tuesday and, when it ended, those who saw it couldn't remember seeing much of anything like it. In one ring was Terrelle Pryor, the former Ohio State quarterback who left the university amid scandal. In the next, Drew Rosenhaus, Pryor's agent. They called it a news conference and though there were reporters there, and cameras, it wasn't really that. It was, in fact, more like a show — the cameras and the media starring as props.

Terrelle Pryor's career at Ohio State, which started with so much promise and potential, came to an abrupt and scandal-ridden end. The Ohio State quarterback announced through his attorney Tuesday that he would not play for the Buckeyes this season. He had already been suspended for the first five games for breaking NCAA rules by accepting improper benefits from the owner of a tattoo parlor. He is expected to make himself available for an NFL supplemental draft. The NCAA is looking into all aspects of Ohio State's once-glittering program, including cash, tattoos and car deals for players and other potential violations.

USC defensive lineman Manuel Wright announced Wednesday that he would leave school because of academic eligibility issues and apply for the NFL's supplemental draft. Wright, 21, was among four USC players who missed spring practice to concentrate on classwork. He took his last final Tuesday but did not wait for grades to be posted before deciding to turn pro. Wright said he spoke with USC Coach Pete Carroll and defensive line coach Jethro Franklin before making his decision.

In a development that could leave the football future of USC sophomore receiver Mike Williams in limbo, the NFL took a step Tuesday toward a possible reversal of last month's landmark district-court ruling that opened the draft to anyone. A three-judge panel of the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in New York scheduled an expedited hearing April 19 or 20 of the league's appeal on the original order in the Maurice Clarett case.

Seth George, a former UCLA striker whose strangest claim to fame is that he once skateboarded from Westwood to Mission Viejo, was the only forward drafted by the Galaxy on Sunday when Major League Soccer held its 1999 college and supplemental drafts in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. "Yes, he's a bit different," said Galaxy Coach Octavio Zambrano, who preferred talking about the defensive additions he had made to his squad. Of the six players drafted by the Galaxy, three are defenders.
