RAIDERS' MOVE POSSIBILITIES ALSO ON NFL OWNERS' AGENDA?

     According to USA TODAY's Danny Sheridan, the Raiders could
be headed for Baltimore for the '95 season.  Sheridan reports
that owner Al Davis has told opponents not to make travel plans
to L.A., "that the Raiders won't be playing this preseason and
regular season in Los Angeles.  He's told the league his first
choice is Baltimore."  Sheridan says Davis' second choice "may be
Oakland."  Sheridan: "I don't think Al's bluffing, because he's
unlikely to get that new stadium in Los Angeles."  NFL Dir of
Communications Greg Aiello says he hasn't heard the rumors of the
Raiders move to either city, but adds:  "In our April 12 meeting
to discuss the Rams, the Raiders' situation is likely to also be
discussed, as it has been.  The big problem is the NFL's presence
in Los Angeles" (Rudy Martzke, USA TODAY, 4/4).
