REDSKINS STILL SEARCHING; COOKE READY TO PLAY BALTIMORE CARD?
Published March 9, 1995
Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke, "increasingly frustrated by zoning delays, is ready to pull the plug on efforts to build a football stadium" near Laurel, MD, and has "intensified his search" for a new site in Prince George's County, MD, according to Michael Abramowitz of the WASHINGTON POST. Sources familiar with the planning said that Cooke not only is concerned about the prospect of a long fight with local opponents, "but also has come to realize" that he will not sway MD Gov. Parris Glendening from opposition to the Laurel site. Glendening reaffirmed his opposition to the Laurel site in an interview last night. Several sites in Prince George's County are the "leading contenders," but state government sources said that Cooke has not ruled out moving his team near Camden Yards in Baltimore. The state already has approved funding to build a stadium in the event Baltimore attracts an NFL franchise (WASHINGTON POST, 3/9).
