CARLISLE, PA., JULY 31 -- With one day to go before the veterans are due to report to training camp, the Washington Redskins are expecting at least two of their three remaining unsigned veteran free agents to hold out.

Defensive tackle Dave Butz, who is at home in Belleville, Ill., and running back Keith Griffin appear farthest from signing, team officials said. Linebacker Mel Kaufman also has not signed.

"I've got a feeling we've got a couple we can't get done {by Saturday}," said Coach Joe Gibbs.

General Manager Bobby Beathard said the Redskins agreed to terms today with cornerback Barry Wilburn, a two-year veteran who started five games last season. Terms of the agreement were not released.

The attorney for Kaufman, who is returning from a ruptured Achilles' tendon last season, said he believes it is "necessary" for his client to not miss any practice time.

"We are very concerned about Mel being in camp on time, but I'm uncertain if we will be able to get things finished when we want to," said George Campbell, who came to Dickinson College to talk with Beathard today. A dispute over base salary appears to be the problem between the two sides.

The players must report Saturday night, but don't begin practicing until Monday morning.

Redskins rookies and first-year players travel to Smithfield, R.I., Saturday to scrimmage their counterparts on the New England Patriots at 1 p.m. at Bryant College.

Second-year quarterback Mark Rypien is expected to play most of the scrimmage, with fourth-stringer Ed Rubbert, a free agent from Louisville, filling in. Jay Schroeder and Doug Williams have the weekend off.

The Redskins are hoping to keep three quarterbacks on their final roster this season, Gibbs said, although he said the same thing last year and kept only Schroeder and Williams. Rypien spent his rookie season on injured reserve . . .

Kicker Max Zendejas, who is trying to win his old job back from incumbent Jess Atkinson, will share kicking duties with free agent Andre Guardi.
