CHARACTER COUNTS: Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross yesterday said character will be a "major" part of player evaluation this year. Ross at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando said, "I always believed in that, but I think people are now more in tune. You've got to be aware of everything." In Ft. Lauderdale, Chris Perkins notes NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell yesterday talked to the owners in a 30-minute closed-door meeting that "focused on values and respect." Goodell said, "With more success, comes more responsibility for all of us to step up and lead. That means staying true to the values that have sustained our success over the years -- integrity, quality, tradition, teamwork, diversity, innovation. Let me leave you with one thought to guide us through the future. Respect" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 3/25).
