NFL NEWS & NOTES: MODELL SEES EARLY RETURN TO CLEVELAND
Published December 13, 1995
Browns Owner Art Modell said Cleveland could get an NFL team as soon as '96 if business and political leaders assembled a sufficient package of inducements, according to the Baltimore SUN. Modell says the package offered to the Browns is inadequate to attract a team. He believes a massive renovation of Cleveland Stadium is needed, and it would have to be coupled with sufficient corporate support and reliable financing (Jon Morgan, Baltimore SUN, 12/13). ....In Washington, Dave Sell looks at the role franchise movement has played in thwarting realignment efforts (WASHINGTON POST, 12/13)....Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones filed a response with the NFL on Monday concerning the Deion Sanders contract. The team goes before special master John Feerick on Friday to appeal an agreement between the NFLPA and the NFL charging an additional $411,000 per season against the Cowboys' cap for four years. If an agreement is not reached, Jones said he will appeal to U.S. District Court Judge David Doty (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 12/13).
