Sheriff's deputies arrested former NFL star Dexter Manley yesterday at a Houston hospital, where he had checked in after missing a court-ordered meeting in the wake of his conviction for evidence tampering. Manley was found guilty last Wednesday after a jury determined he tried to swallow less than a gram of cocaine during a 2001 drug bust in Houston. Sentencing is set for April 5, but Manley had been required to meet with a probation officer Thursday and failed to show up. His attorney, Jonathan Munier, said the former Pro Bowl defensive lineman checked into Riverside General Hospital over the weekend for depression.

Washington Redskins defensive end Dexter Manley has applied to commissioner Paul Tagliabue to lift his lifetime ban for violating the National Football League's substance-abuse rules, Manley's lawyer, Bob Woolf, said yesterday. Tagliabue has said he would consider reinstating the 10-year veteran after Nov. 18, the first anniversary of Manley's ban for using cocaine. "We won't even be considering it until Nov. 18," said NFL spokesman Greg Aiello. Redskins officials have said privately they are not interested in having Manley, their all-time sacks leader, back if he is reinstated.

In the game of baseball, three strikes and you're out. But in professional football, when it comes to big stars and drug offenses, three is evidently just not all that many. That was the message sent by the National Football League commissioner Paul Tagliabue when he allowed former Washington Redskins lineman Dexter Manley to return to play in the NFL despite testing positive for drug use three times. That ruling made a joke out of the NFL policy that called for a "lifetime" ban on any player violating drug policy more than twice.

NFL SENT THE RIGHT MESSAGE ON DEXTER MANLEY Your Nov. 26 editorial on Dexter Manley ("A short 'lifetime') is completely insensitive to those who have serious difficulties with drugs and alcohol. Although baseball gives three strikes, our society should never give up on people who need to cure themselves of their drug or alcohol problems. By allowing Dexter Manley to return to football, Paul Tagliabue sent the right message to all athletes and people with alcohol or drug dependency that, if they prove they can overcome their problems, they will be given another chance at life.

Dexter Manley of the Washington Redskins was suspended for 30 days by NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle yesterday for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Although the league did not characterize the move as a suspension, a league spokesman, Joe Browne, said in New York that Manley had been notified that he had involuntarily been placed on the team's non-football injury list for 30 days. "I have instructed Dexter Manley to remain out of the Redskins' training camp until Aug. 26," Rozelle said in a statement issued through Browne.

Standing in a bitter wind that turned the practice field into a tundra, Eagles coach Buddy Ryan wondered whether his team could remain hot - emotionally hot. "It's hard to keep that emotion up," Ryan said after practice yesterday. "It's hard to play with that emotion week after week. " The Eagles played with emotion two weeks ago in beating the Dallas Cowboys, and managed to beat the St. Louis Cardinals last week despite being flat. But the Washington Redskins, whom the Eagles play tomorrow afternoon at Veterans Stadium, should prove to be more formidable than the Cowboys or the Cardinals.

Terry Collins, fired a month ago by the Houston Astros after a late-season collapse, was introduced yesterday as the new manager of the California Angels. Collins, a former minor-league infielder who was 224-197 in his three years at Houston, is known as a fiery competitor who gets particularly upset when he feels players aren't trying their hardest. The Angels' job became open on Aug. 6, when Marcel Lachemann resigned with the team at 52-59. John McNamara was named interim manager for the rest of the year.

It's a year later, but Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham still has Dexter Manley on his mind. Manley isn't supposed to start in Sunday's opener at RFK Stadium because of an injured knee. Markus Koch, who is probably a better run defender but not as good a pass rusher, figures to start in Manley's place. But the impression that Manley made in last year's opener was so great that Cunningham is convinced his absence will be a big difference. "It is," Cunningham said. "Last year, he came in fresh.

Former NFL star Dexter Manley was sentenced to two years in a Texas jail yesterday for evidence tampering after he was convicted of swallowing cocaine during a drug bust and failing to show for a court-ordered meeting. Manley could have received as little as probation. His possible state jail term ranged from six months to two years. He received the maximum. Manley, 43, was arrested Monday at a Houston hospital, where he checked in last weekend. "I do think that you need drug treatment," Harris County Judge Elsa Alcala told Manley.

The Minnesota Vikings gave John Randle a chance as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Texas A & I in 1990, and he became one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL. Yesterday, the Vikings rewarded him with a two-year contract extension worth $6.3 million, a deal his agent said makes him the highest-paid tackle in the game. "I'm glad we came to an agreement, glad to get it done. Now I'm hoping things get back to normal," Randle said. The contract includes a $2.25 million signing bonus.

The Dallas Cowboys are trying to put the final pieces of their offensive puzzle in place, and if they succeed, it will mean big problems for the rest of the NFC East. The Cowboys already have a blue-chip quarterback in Troy Aikman and a franchise runner in Emmitt Smith. What they have lacked is speed at wide receiver, and head coach Jimmy Johnson is determined to fix that this season. Even though the Cowboys don't officially open their training camp in Austin, Texas, until tomorrow, Dallas' leading pass catcher in 1990, wide receiver Kelvin Martin, has been dropped to second string.

However, Manley doesn't have a tackle yet, and he played just one down in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants. "I've never stood on the sideline that long," Manley said. "Gary Mack (the Cardinals' team counselor) saved me a couple of times. I got in a real tense way. There were times I wanted to choke (defensive coordinator)

Roger Clemens of the Boston Red Sox yesterday was suspended for the first five games of next season and fined $10,000 for behavior that led to his ejection from the final game of the American League championship series. The suspension means he will miss one start. Clemens was ejected by plate umpire Terry Cooney in a dispute over balls and strikes in the second inning of Oakland's 3-1 victory on Oct. 10; that win completed the A's four-game playoff sweep. In his announcement, American League president Bobby Brown cited Clemens for making " . . . significant physical contact with an umpire (Jim Evans)
