If a deal cannot be made by the Jets,' they must in- form Narhath by April 1 if they plan to pick up the option year on his contract. If not, he could be put through waivers if he desires or he could send a letter informing the club he wishes to become a free agent immediately. Should Namath become a free agent without playing out his option year with the Jets, it appeared the Rams could sign him without having to compensate the New York club" with two first-round draft choices. That would be the price if Namath played- out the option year with the Jets and was signed by another NFL club.

Girardeau said Loudd's life may be in danger and organized .crime may be playing a central role in the case. Girardeau was assigned to investigate the Loudd case by Rep. Don Hazelton, chairman of ' the House Corrections, Probation and Parole Committee. ,' "My investigation is not f i n a l i z e d yet but my preliminary indications are that Rommie Loudd is in- nocent and should not be in jail," hesaid. Loudd, who headed the team in the now-defunct WFL, was convicted in November, 1975 of two counts of cocaine delivery and sentenced to concurrent 14-year sentences. He is now in .the Avon Park Correc- tional Institution. Loudd also was convicted in' Boston in March, 1976, of cocaine delivery. G i r a r d e a u said con- versations with Loudd and others in the case show that .Dale Skates, an inmate who was convicted on bad check charges, was sent to the Avon Park prison with, a contract to kill Loudd. Girardeau said -Skates, who %yas released, backed .out of the contract and told Loudd pf the plan: Skates, said Girardeau, has been released and now is in hiding and afraid to go to authorities. . Girardeau said he Is trying .to · locate Cecil Johnson, a friend of Loudd, who allegedly says Loudd "was set up" on the drug charges. "Cecil Johnson was also convicted on drug charges, but served only six months, of a 14~year sentence," said Girardeau, a dentist. :"He .was released on bond. Now; no one knows where he is." Loudd, said- Girardeau, may have, been : lured into setting up a drug'deal under the pretense he was receiving financing for the Blazers. ' . . - · ' "I believe organized crime is involved in this," said Girardeau. ''Why would some one want'to kill him after he was already tried and convicted on charges of having a con- trolled substance?" The Justice Department is now reviewing the case to determine if it will conduct an investiation into possible civil rights violations. Orange-Osceola state at- torney Robert Eagen said earlier .this week he was investigating the death threat report but that he had not found any evidence to .substantiate the story. Loudd, 43, a star end at UCLA, was a linebacker for the Chicago Bears, the San Diego Chargers, the then- Boston Patriots and also played in Canada. ' .. He was the highest ranking black executive in the N a t i o n a l Football League as player personnel d i r e c t o r : ' f o r the New England Patriots.. He also was the first black assistant coach in . the American Football League in 1966. He decided to leave the NFL post with the Patriots for a chance to become the nation's first black football team owner with the Florida Blazers of the WFL in Orlando.
