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).
