By THE ASSOCIATED PRBSS The National Football League's exhibition season opens Saturday but the games will be minus a couple of star quarterbacks named Joe. Joe Namath of New York Jets and Joe Kapp of Minnesota Vikings are on strike for more money. Other star holdouts include running back Jim Nance of Boston Patriots and wide receiver Paul Warfield of Miami Dolphins. Only, one day game is scheduled Saturday. The Vikings will clash at Canton, Ohio, with New Orleans Saints in the annual Hall of Fame game. Namath was quoted Thursday night as saying he didn't want to play football. He later met with Phil Iselin, president of the Jets, who issued a statement saying the session was "an effort to resolve some requests Joe has made." Iselin said nothing was settled but he and Namath were "still discussing those requests." 1 The Vikings, meanwhile, said talks with Kapp about his demand for a five-year $1.25-mil-lion contract, had ended. WILL NOT RETURN Kapp's lawyer, John Elliot Cook, said Thursday the Vikings "are out of the picture now" as far as the quarterback is concerned. But Cook wouldn't comment when asked if negotiations were under way with any other team. Kapp has played out his option and is a free agent. Namath, on the other hand, has two years plus an option year left on his present contract. There was a general feeling among Vikings veterans that Kapp would eventually come to terms .with the Vikings. Kapp came from British Columbia Lions of the Canadian League and signed with the Vikings just before the 1967 season. The Vikings had an 0-4 record when he was given his first starting assignment. He led the team to a 10-7 victory over Green Bay, and Minnesota was 3-4-3 the rest of the season under Kapp. The Vikings won the Central Division title and next year with an 8-6 record and notched a 12-2 mark last year in winning the league title. Elsewhere Thursday in pro football, San Francisco '49ers said placekicking star Tommy Davis, a fixture with the team since 1959, had been placed oo waivers. Davis didn't report to the '49er camp.
