NFL NEWS & NOTES: MODELL SEES EARLY RETURN TO CLEVELAND

     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).
