The Dallas Cowboys acquired kicker Rolf Benirschke from the San Diego Chargers yesterday for an undisclosed draft choice, Dallas team officials said.

Benirschke, 32, a 10-year veteran who ranks as the third most accurate kicker in National Football League history, is the Chargers' all-time scoring leader with 15 club kicking records.

Falcons:

William Andrews, considered one of the top running backs in the NFL before a career-threatening knee injury three years ago, ended his comeback bid by announcing his retirement.

Also, the Falcons placed former Navy star Eddie Meyers on injured reserved. His five-year service commitment completed, he hurt a knee in the second preseason game.

At a news conference, Andrews said, "I think it's time now that I step aside and let the youngsters have it. I fulfilled everything I wanted to do in the game, except longevity, which was just not a part of it."

Andrews holds 11 club records for the Atlanta Falcons, most established in the first five of his six seasons.

He had surgery on his left knee after a training camp injury before the 1984 season. He missed two full seasons because of the injury and attempted a comeback last year, when he was used sparingly, rushing for 214 yards on 52 carries.

Meanwhile, the team increased its contract offer to No. 1 draft pick Chris Miller, but the former Oregon quarterback's agent Mike Blatt, wasn't impressed. The Falcons trimmed their incentive package and added it to the base pay.

Vikings:

Six-year veteran defensive back Willie Teal, who has been fighting a losing battle against knee ailments, was among seven players released. Others cut included offensive tackle Bob Riley, the team's 10th-round draft choice out of Indiana; defensive lineman Keith Williams, the 12th-round pick out of Florida; punter Mike Black; wide receiver Thad McFadden; tight end Joe Jones, and running back Carl Woods. Riley and Williams were the first draft picks cut.

Oilers:

Houston obtained offensive tackle Greg Feasel from Green Bay and placed seven players on injured reserve. The Oilers gave Green Bay an undisclosed conditional draft choice for Feasel, a former Abilene Christian University player who played 15 games for the Packers last season.

Placed on injured reserve were tackle Don Maggs; rookie fourth-round draft choice Mark Dusbabek; defensive tackle Ramsey Dardar; nose guard Tony Fitzpatrick; safety Bo Eason; linebacker Neal Dellocono and tackle Karl Baldischwiler.

Saints:

The team reached agreement with first-round draft choice Shawn Knight, a 6-6, 290-pound defensive lineman, ending the longest holdout in the team's 21 years.

General Manager Jim Finks said it was a four-year contract with no option year. Sources said the contract was for $1.675 million plus about $150,000 in incentives -- close to what Knight originally requested and about $200,000 more than the Saints originally offered.

Packers:

Seventh-year quarterback David Woodley was among 12 players cut. Woodley, once a Super Bowl starter for Miami, was obtained during the offseason from Pittsburgh.

Chiefs:

Former Redskins quarterback Babe Laufenberg was among 13 players released as the team cut its roster to 60 players.

Dolphins:

Veteran tight end Joe Rose and 10 free agents went as Miami Coach Don Shula tried to pare his roster to the 60-player limit.

Also, Bob Woolf, the agent for unsigned first-round draft choice John Bosa, was at training camp to talk with team officials. "I'm here to make something happen, but it hasn't happened yet," Woolf said.

Eagles:

Cornerback Leslie Frazier, attempting to return from knee surgery, was waived for the second time this preseason. Frazier was a starting cornerback for Chicago until he suffered ligament damage in Super Bowl XX. He missed all of last season and was waived by Chicago this summer.

Bills:

Buffalo acquired wide receiver Trumaine Johnson in a trade with San Diego for rookie linebacker David Brandon, a third-round pick this year. The teams also exchanged undisclosed draft choices, said Bills spokesman Dave Senko.
