IS BARRY BIDDING TO KEEP THE SKINS IN DC?
Published January 17, 1995
While the Redskins are still formerly pursuing a new stadium in Anne Arundel County, MD, a WASHINGTON TIMES report claims that DC officials are attempting to lure Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke to stay in Washington. The DC deal, as outlined in the TIMES: DC will help pay to tear down RFK stadium; Cooke will pay to build a new stadium at the site; the Skins will play games at the Univ. of MD's Byrd Stadium in the interim. Officials representing Cooke denied the deal, stating the chances for such a deal as "absolutely nil." DC Mayor Marion Barry would not discuss the deal (Adrianne Flynn, WASHINGTON TIMES, 1/14).
