The Dallas Cowboys released five-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Flozell Adams and safety Ken Hamlin 2 years after both signed long-term contracts. Adams was coming off his 12th season and was the longest-tenured player on the team, having started 178 of his 182 games for Dallas. All of his Pro Bowl selections came between 2003-08. "We will always be grateful for his outstanding durability, dependability and contributions to this team," owner Jerry Jones said yesterday in a statement.

All-Pro wide receiver Randy Moss was fined $40,000 by the NFL yesterday for squirting a water bottle at an official in the Vikings' playoff loss to the Rams. The Minnesota star, who was fined $10,000 earlier this season for verbally abusing an official, is appealing. "Our position is that the fine is excessive," agent Dante' DiTrapano said, adding that the first fine also was under appeal. Moss squirted the plastic bottle at field judge Jim Saracino during the game last Sunday, which the Rams won, 49-37.

Some teams will move quickly when NFL free agency begins today. Expect the smarter teams to sit back and wait to pick up veterans such as Emmitt Smith, the NFL's career rushing leader, who was cut loose yesterday by Dallas. Another star hit the market yesterday when Cleveland released linebacker Earl Holmes after signing him a year ago from division rival Pittsburgh for $17.5 million over five years. Also released yesterday were wide receiver Curtis Conway and safety Rodney Harrison of San Diego, one of the NFL's better players at his position in the last decade; Cleveland linebacker Jamir Miller, a former Pro Bowler who missed all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon; Buffalo tight end Jay Riemersma; and St. Louis cornerback Aeneas Williams, who missed the last half of the 2002 season with ankle and leg injuries.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman will miss at least one game while recovering from concussions in consecutive weeks, but he won't use the time off to think about retirement. "Retirement is not a consideration," Aikman said yesterday. "It's not something I'm thinking about or even weighing as an option right now. I feel that in time I'll be fine and be able to resume playing. I anticipate that will happen very soon. " Aikman, who has never missed a game because of a concussion, said it would be wrong for him to even speculate how long he'll be out. An MRI taken Tuesday came out fine and more tests are planned for later this week.

Dallas Cowboys left tackle Flozell Adams has been fined $12,500 by the NFL for kicking two New York Giants on Sunday, making it two straight games he's been fined. Adams was punished not only for the second-quarter play that left Justin Tuck with a shoulder injury, but also for doing it to Osi Umenyiora in the fourth quarter. Adams was flagged for kicking Tuck, but not for the swipe at Umenyiora. After the game, Tuck called it a "bush league play," and Adams shot back Monday, saying he didn't know Tuck was hurt, adding, "From a supposed kick?

The NFL is reviewing a play on which Cowboys tackle Flozell Adams shoved New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck in the back. It could result in another fine for Adams or even a suspension. "Any altercation of that nature is reviewed for discipline," NFL spokesman Randall Liu confirmed yesterday. While such reviews may be routine, Adams has a history of run-ins with New York, including Week 2 this season when Tuck injured his shoulder after being tripped by Adams. The NFL fined Adams $12,500 for two plays in that game, and he also was fined for incidents in the games immediately before and after that.

The last time the Eagles failed to convert an extra point, Lincoln Financial Field was still a giant hole alongside Interstate 95, and the team was 21 seasons removed from playing in its last NFC championship game. After missing in the second quarter of a rout of the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 30, 2001, at Texas Stadium, David Akers connected on a franchise-record 153 consecutive kicks following an Eagles touchdown. Akers' streak ended in the second quarter yesterday against those Cowboys at the Linc, and it appeared for a long time as if it would be a costly miss.

It's Steve Stenstrom's turn to try to reverse the San Francisco 49ers' sagging fortunes. Stenstrom, the team's third-string quarterback at the beginning of the season, took over the starter's role yesterday from slumping Jeff Garcia, who had gone 1-4 in his five starts since replacing injured Steve Young. San Francisco (3-5) has lost four of five games since losing Young on Sept. 27. Garcia, who spent five years in the CFL before signing with San Francisco, won his first NFL start Oct. 3 against Tennessee but struggled in four subsequent starts, all losses.

The primary reason the Cowboys lost four of their last six games last season, including a home playoff contest to the Cardinals, is the same reason that they are unbeaten and heavily favored to outmuscle the Eagles Sunday at Veterans Stadium. In three words: the offensive line. Last season, the Cowboys' line faded badly down the stretch. Guard Nate Newton, the wisecracking, 350-pound overeater, managed just six starts, as did Everett McIver, who was hurt early in the year.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - There was panic and disharmony on one side, unsavory history on the other, big plays, big mistakes, even a big brawl as the first half ended. Cowboys-Giants. What else? "This is a heated rivalry," Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka said yesterday after New York revived its season with a 31-24 victory over Dallas. "We see each other too often. It's almost like we're in the same city. And sometimes it boils over. " Beating the Cowboys for the second time this season, New York improved to 7-5 and added drama to its matchup with the Eagles next Sunday night at Giants Stadium.
