MARYLAND SOURCES SAY BROWNS MOVE TO BALTIMORE "PROMISING"
Published November 2, 1995
Maryland Stadium Authority Chair John Moag said he asked for NFL owners to delay a vote on a resolution which would guarantee Baltimore a team until later this year because he "wants to focus on his efforts to convince a team to move here and save the resolution as a 'last resort.'" The Authority is talking to a number of franchises, "and several sources say discussions" with the Browns -- "possibly under the new ownership of former Maryland banker Alfred Lener -- appear very promising." NFL Dir/Commun Greg Aiello said yesterday the league had not decided whether to delay voting on the resolution (Baltimore SUN, 11/2). BROWN WITH ENVY? Browns Owner Art Modell is "disappointed" in Cleveland's response to his stadium needs and has recently talked with people interested in moving the team to Anaheim (Peter King, SI, 11/6 issue).
