COOKE EXPANDS SEARCH FOR BALTIMORE/WASHINGTON SITES
Published October 19, 1994
Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke announced yesterday that he is looking at MD properties other than Laurel on which to build his new stadium. Cooke said Laurel is still the "first choice" but Stadium Project Manager Walter Lynch said the team has been "swamped" with alternative land offers. "Some observers who have been close to the yearlong process" of gaining stadium approval see Cooke's announcement as a "message" to the NFL and the Rams, reinforcing Cooke's intention to "move into the Maryland football market." When asked if he had eliminated Baltimore as a potential stadium site, Cooke said, "That is my business." Rumored MD sites include USAir Arena in Landover and the former Freestate Raceway in North Laurel. Cooke "did not appear to rule out" VA and DC sites. DC mayoral candidate Marion Barry said the announcement "doesn't affect us": "We're moving full steam ahead" (Katherine Richards, Baltimore SUN, 10/19).
