NFL FRANCHISE NOTES

     RAMS:  In Washington, Mark Maske reports that Orioles owner
Peter Angelos met with Raiders owner Al Davis.  He "apparently
received advice from Davis" about dealing with the league,
especially on issues having to do with relocation.  Angelos and
MD Gov. William Donald Schaefer were in Southern CA over the
weekend to meet with Rams President John Shaw (WASHINGTON POST,
9/21).
     BROWNS:  In Cleveland, Bud Shaw's column on Browns coach
Bill Belichick noted that last Sunday's crowd was the smallest
for a September home game in nine years and "only the fourth such
paltry turnout in 20 seasons."  Shaw notes that the size of the
crowd was reminiscent of the crowd sizes in the final coaching
years of both Sam Rutigliano and Nick Skorich (CLEVELAND PLAIN
DEALER, 9/20).
     MORT REPORT:  ESPN's Chris Mortenson notes that if Jimmy
Johnson goes to the Bucs it would "inflate the team's price tag,"
similar to the Patriots after hiring Bill Parcells
("Sportscenter," 9/20).
