In Jacksonville, Orlando wide receiver Jerry Parrish returned the opening kickoff 87 yards and caught a 10-yard touchdown pass to lead the Renegades to a 20-10 USFL exhibition victory over the Jacksonville Bulls.

Jacksonville quarterback Brian Sipe, acquired Wednesday from the New Jersey Generals, hit tight end Victor Hicks with a 14-yard pass with 35 seconds left in the first half for the Bulls' only touchdown. Sipe, who played less than four minutes, went six for seven for 54 yards.

A crowd of 16,500 watched the Renegades, who last year were the Washington Federals, win their second exhibition game . . .

Officials in New York City have contacted the National Football League's St. Louis Cardinals about the possibility of moving the team to New York, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Quoting a source familiar with the New York situation, the newspaper said the recent inquiry came from a representative of Mayor Edward Koch's administration.

There are two NFL teams in the New York area -- the Giants and the Jets -- but both teams play at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. . . .

Quarterback Wayne Peace has returned to Florida just two days after he was acquired by the Portland Breakers of the USFL. Peace said he won't play in the league again.

Peace stunned the Breakers Friday by leaving their Pomona, Calif., training camp with little explanation. The team gave the Tampa Bay Bandits two No. 1 draft choices to get Peace.

Reached by telephone Friday, Peace said he didn't want to play in Oregon. He said the only reason he joined the USFL was to play in Tampa.
