Harbaugh said he feels comfortable with the teams offense I feel real good with Harbaugh said Saturday as the Colts went through the second day of their threeday minicamp Nick Nicolau offensive coordi nator has been tutoring us for about a month and I feel way ahead of the Harbaugh signed as a free agent April 8 after being released by the Chicago Bears on March 16 Hes expected to compete with Don Majkowski for the starting job when training camp opens in July I feel real comfortable with the system Its a better system than I ve run in a couple of said Harbaugh who set club records for completions attempts and consecutive passes without an interception during his seven years with the Bears The offensive line helps a great deal because theyre very Harbaugh said when asked what makes the Colts system better than the one he worked with in Chicago recently Its more wide open It allows you to really stretch the field in a lot of different ways get three or four receivers into the He leaves an offense ranked last among the NFLs 28 clubs hoping to turn a club that had the leagues worst running game into a playoff contender Theres a chance for us to really move the ball and score some said Harbaugh who is among those impressed with the early work of running back Marshall Faulk the second pick overall in last months NFL draft Marshall looks to be the player we thought he would be He shows an extreme quickness the speed that weve lacked in the said coach Ted Marchibroda And hes shown that he has excellent hands and runs excellent Harbaugh is convinced Marchibroda is committed to mix ing the pass with an improved ground gain The Colts have ranked at the bottom of the league Jim Harbaugh in rushing throughout the 1990s With Roosevelt Potts and Marshall theres a real chance for balance and he said adding he also finds the offense a lot simpler than the one utilized by the Bears Because of the nohuddle they had to make it simpler When youre up at the line of scrim mage you cant be yelling what the play is Its got to be cooed its got to be simple Its got to be Harbaugh said Theyve made a great effort of condensing the amount of words and verbage you use Everyone learns it It makes it easier to Marchibroda said both Harbaugh and Majkowski the clubs only returning quarterback have thrown well in tne first two days of minicamp Both of them are throwing a lit tle better than I anticipated at this Marchibroda said Colts sign Arbuckle The Colts announced that tight end Charles Arbuckle who was a restricted free agent has agreed to terms for a new contract The Colts also announced the signing of free agent wide receiver Wesley Carroll and 16 other free agents The Colts also announced they have cut veteran offensive tackle Kevin Call in a costcutting mea sure Call who was with the team for 10 years would have earned in 1994 more than the team was willing to pay a backup lineman The list included defensive line man Russell Allen wide receiver Aaron Bailey offensive lineman Marc Borrelli and defensive back Todd Ericson The NFLs longest of long shots Nottage hopes to crack lineup on practice field for first time in two years By Scf ipps Howard News Service ASHBURN Va He might not be the longest longshot of the NFL draft but the odds cant be in Dexter Nottages favor Just dont tell him that The 64 273pound defensive end doesnt want to hear he cant make it Hes having too much fun now that he has just completed his first work on a practice field in more than two years at the Washington Redskins minicamp I dont think Im a long Nottage said with a wide smile I think I can do Why shouldnt he be confident Hes done quite a bit already just to reach this point A onetime high school star and freshman starter at Florida Nottage quit school to support his family in Miami after his sophomore season Then after working out on his own and participating in NFL evaluation camps Nottage impressed enough people to put himself into position to be drafted He was taken in the sixth round by the Redskins who need help on the defensive line Im just so he said Its my dream came At one though he was ing a nightmare Nottage grew up in the violent Overtown area of Miami He performed well enough at Hollywood Hills High to be recruited by Florida State and Auburn before choosing FAMU in Tallahassee He became a dominant player midway through his freshman season and his potential seemed boundless The next season he and a new line coach did not get along He says the line coach told him he had a discipline prob Nottage said he made choic es at times of school over practice 1 He had also married before the season That added to the pressures But things were soon to get worse At the end of the school year Nottage was called home because his mother was sick and forced to bed Not long afterwards his sis ter Isadora was hit by a van and had to stop working Football players find trouble with agents TALLAHASSEE Fla AP At least two members of Florida States 1993 national champi onship football team accepted ille gal gifts from unregistered sports agents school officials said Saturday We have learned there were indeed some problems we need to said Talbot Sandy DAlemberte president of the uni versity Weve only begun the investigation There are a great deal of things we dont No players names were dis closed but DAlemberte said Heisman Trophy winner Charlie Ward was not involved in any of the allegations Florida State authorities began their own investigation Thursday after being told about the pay ments by two Sports Illustrated reporters who had been on campus talking with Seminoles players We got on top of this thing right said DAlemberte a former president of the American Bar Association He said the university had retained a Kansas City law firm on advice from the Atlantic Coast Conference to help in its investi gation and hoped it might lead to prosecution of unethical agents trying to entice athletes with

MOST OTHER INSURANCE I looked around and knew it was up to me to go to work and help the family he said So he quit school and took a vari ety of jobs over the next two years like moving furniture working as a parking attendant and a security guard and carrying cable for a fiberoptics company Yet both he and his wife Koxanne who served as his per sonal trainer still thought about the NFL They contacted a lawyer and began exploring how to catch the attention of NFL teams Nottage was not invited to the main scout ing combine in Indianapolis this winter but he did work out for teams in Miami and Tampa Bay where he made a quick impression In Mjami he graded out better than University of Miami stars Darren Krien and Kevin Patrick Washington defensive line coach Bob Karmelowicz worked Nottage individually as well I asked him if he wanted to do more and then I asked him if he wanted to do more and then I asked him if he wanted to do said Karmelowicz And he wanted to do more and more and more Hes absolutely egoless He didnt come in here thinking he invented the threepoint stance Hes already gotten a good taste of the real world and now he has a chance to make something real nice for himself and his family But hes raw His picture should be next to raw in the So the Redskins have taken a chance Nottage thinks they made a good move In a way it was kind of foreign to finally get back on a football he said But at the same time its not foreign because its like your home You can leave for a little while but youll always comeback and once you come bdck its like you never missed a beat 1 was fortunate to have my family and friends keep pushing me and believing in me Outgoing and friendly Nottage reminds some Redskin observers of another Dexter who Was suc cessful playing at
