Rypien deal could be made today


CARLISLE, Pa. -- There were hints yesterday that an agreement could be near between the Washington Redskins and holdout quarterback Mark Rypien.

Head coach Joe Gibbs suggested there was some movement, and Ken Staninger, Rypien's agent, said "there's a chance" a deal could be made today.

General manager Charley Casserly declined to comment, but Staninger said he talked twice with Casserly yesterday and plans to talk to him again today. He called the talks "discussions on different ideas on how to accomplish both sides' needs."

Gibbs said: "I think they were all talking about some different offers or something. That's what I've been waiting on."

Asked whether the Redskins had made a new offer, he said: "I didn't. I don't have anything to do with this. Give me some money and I will."
