SHARPE WITHDRAWS LAWSUIT AGAINST NFL/NFLPA

     Sterling Sharpe has withdrawn his $9.6M lawsuit against the
NFL and NFLPA.  However, Sharpe's lawyer, Grady Irvin, claims
that "the Packers haven't heard the last word from his client."
The next step for Sharpe is a July 11 hearing before federal
Judge David Doty in Minneapolis on whether half the $3.2M salary
Sharpe seeks in an injury grievance claim applies to the team's
cap.  NFL attorney Jim Conway called both Sharpe's and Richard
Dent's suits "frivolous" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 6/30).
