A Memphis group headed by Federal Express is hoping to win a CFL franchise to begin play in the fall of '95. Pepper Rodgers, who would be managing general partner of the team said Federal Express founder Frederick Smith would be the chief owner. The CFL will discuss the Memphis bid at a news conference today.
