MARYLAND SOURCES SAY BROWNS MOVE TO BALTIMORE "PROMISING"

     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).
