Today's NFL supplemental draft could start a curious game of chicken between Brian Bosworth, the pulverizing linebacker from Oklahoma, and most of the pro football establishment. Bosworth, who has taken great pains to make himself eligible for this draft, has made it clear over the last few months that he is interested in playing for only a few teams. Exactly which teams they are may be known only to Bosworth, and the lineup seems to be changing day to day. At any rate, Bosworth contends that he is prepared to sit out the season if he doesn't wind up where he wants.

Terrelle Pryor is eligible for the NFL's supplemental draft, the league said Thursday. But that doesn't mean he will shed his five-game suspension when he joins the NFL this fall. Pryor gave up his final season at Ohio State after an investigation into a memorabilia-for-cash scandal that cost coach Jim Tressel his job. For breaking the rules, the quarterback faced a five-game suspension. Instead, the star recruit out of Jeannette High in Western Pennsylvania won't be allowed to practice with the NFL team that takes him until the fifth week of the season.

THE UNION selected Eric Schoenle (West Virginia), Uriah Bentick (Liberty), Mark Linnville (Princeton), Jake Keegan (Binghamton) and Leonardo Fernandes (Stony Brook) in the supplemental draft Tuesday. With the No. 12 pick, the Union selected Schoenle, 21, a defender and local product from Yardley who attended Pennsbury High School and played for the Yardley Makefield Soccer youth club. At No. 17, the club picked Bentick, 23, a senior defender and native of Trinidad and Tobago.

Two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora is returning to work for the New York Giants without a new contract. In an email to the Associated Press last night, Umenyiora said he plans to practice today at training camp, and that he will play this season under the terms of his current contract. Umenyiora said the Giants offered to put incentives in his contact, which will pay him $7.1 million over the next two seasons, but he rejected them. "No deal has been reworked," Umenyiora told the AP . "What has been offered has been unacceptable and shows they don't really respect the fact I sacrifice my health for the franchise.

At this point in the pro football season, there is no defeat that does not offer some work worthy of praise. So it was last night for the Eagles, who bowed to Miami, 20-15, but took off their collective hat to Charles Crawford, the unlikeliest starter of them all. A 22-year-old fullback from Oklahoma State who was added to the Eagles' roster 16 days ago, Crawford belied his lack of training-camp time by finishing as the game's top...

A federal appeals court will hear the dispute over whether Maurice Clarett can enter the NFL draft less than a week before it takes place. The NFL yesterday tried to convince a three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York that it should block Clarett's entry by staying the effect of a lower court judge's ruling he be allowed in the April 24-25 draft, even though the former Ohio State running back is only 2 years out...

Darren Benson, a defensive lineman who came to the Cowboys from junior college last year as a supplemental draft pick, is contemplating retirement, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. Benson failed to report for the team's minicamp over the weekend. According to one Cowboys source, Benson's decision could be based on several factors including family problems, feeling like an outsider in the locker room, and feeling like football is more work than fun. By taking Benson in the supplemental draft in July, the Cowboys relinquished their third-round selection in last weekend's NFL draft.

Brian Bosworth, seeking to pick his NFL team rather than be picked by one he disdains, said yesterday that he would make himself available for the league's supplemental draft. Bosworth said he passed up the regular April 28 NFL draft because he feared that he would be selected by a losing team. The two-time all-America linebacker at Oklahoma said he and agent Gary Wichard would write to clubs for which he does not want to play, asking those teams not to select him in the supplemental draft.

Ohio State athletic director Rick Bay said yesterday that he wouldn't appeal the ineligibility of all-America wide receiver Cris Carter, who was thrown off the Buckeyes team last month for accepting money from and signing with an agent. "We think it's so serious we're not even going to appeal, because, even if we won the appeal on some technical basis, we'd have a tough time looking our colleagues in the face," Bay said. "It's not a vindictive thing. I'm not out to ruin Cris Carter's life.

The former executive director of the NFL Players Association says there is a 50-50 chance the players will strike when their contract expires Aug. 31. Ed Garvey said his conversations with players led him to believe that NFL management had learned nothing from the 1982 strike, when he was leading the Players Association, now headed by Gene Upshaw. "We thought in 1982 that that was the strike to end all strikes," Garvey said. "The NFL by and large still has an attitude toward labor that was prevalent in the late 1920s.

HEY EAGLES FANS, want to let Jeffrey Lurie know how you feel and help out your favorite newspaper in the process? Follow the lead of Carolina Panthers supporters, who purchased a full-page ad in Monday's Charlotte Observer ripping team owner Jerry Richardson. The ad was paid for by the "Peturbed Panthers PSL Owners Federation. " The group claims the team is more interested in personal seat licenses and season-ticket sales than winning. Oddly enough, the Eagles are mentioned in a section that questions why Richardson entrusts the team in "the hands of highly speculative NFL managers and coaches - including our young defensive coordinator who was given his walking papers in Philadelphia just prior to you hiring him?"

IT'S NO SECRET the Union is revitalized under interim manager John Hackworth. I use the term "interim" carefully, given the scoring knack this club has shown since Hackworth, 46, took over on June 13, along with the fury insiders say he unleashed in getting rid of a pair of technical staff members last week — also under an interim tag. But that's another column?… Bottom line is that members of this club are playing for Hack in a way they weren't under former manager Peter Nowak.

Union forward Antoine Hoppenot has been described as annoying, a pest, and somebody who isn't good to be around. And that is by his friends. Actually, those are all terms of affection for a player who has been arguably the most pleasant surprise for the Union in an otherwise disappointing season. The 21-year-old from Princeton University is 5-foot-8 and weighs 155 pounds in a dripping wet uniform. For much of the season that uniform remained dry, because of Hoppenot's inactivity.

Love them or hate them, the Eagles' draft picks on the defensive line usually have been memorable. They are rarely boring. They have been stars who set standards of Eagles excellence. They have been colorful. They have been busts of historic proportions. They have been hated and loved and have died tragically early. Start at the top, with Reggie White, who was taken in the 1984 supplemental draft and became one of the greatest defensive players in NFL history. He made seven Pro Bowls with the Eagles and six with the Green Bay Packers after leaving as perhaps the most sought-after free agent in NFL history.

THE UNION opened preseason in Orlando yesterday with a pair of expected arrivals - and early departures. Keon Daniel, the midfielder who failed to return after he left to play an international friendly in his native Trinidad and Tobago in August, rejoined the team. In 18 appearances last season, Daniel, 25, had a goal and a pair of assists. Also returning from a weeklong training stint with English Premier League side Aston Villa was forward Danny Mwanga. Mwanga, 20, the seventh player to venture overseas this offseason, took part in intensified training, presumably to prepare for his increased role given the loss of Union top scorer Sebastien Le Toux, now with Vancouver.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - In their first two Major League Soccer SuperDrafts, the Union made selections based on positions they needed to fill. This year, they don't need all that much. Between the team's many offseason signings and the still-fresh memories of last season's playoff berth, the Union find themselves not worrying too much about which prospects will fall their way. The Union have the 13th pick in the first round here on Thursday, as well as the 13th and 16th picks in the second round.

Kevin Kolb is disgusted with the way his Arizona career has started. He knows that the Cardinals paid him big money to be the franchise quarterback for years to come. So the former Eagle said he is looking in the mirror to find the leader to bring the team out of its four-game losing streak, that his postgame comments after Sunday's 34-10 loss at Minnesota were not meant to blame his teammates, as some had interpreted them. Kolb said Sunday that the players "have to get more detail-oriented.
