HOUSTON EYES THE NFL FUTURE AND IT'S A SMALL MARKET TEAM?

     An unnamed source said that NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue
told the city of Houston that the best way to get another team
would be to build a new stadium to attract a small market
franchise, according to John McClain of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE.
McClain writes, "This is the first time anyone involved in the
talks has admitted that expansion might be out of the question."
Sources tell McClain there are several local bidders besides
Padres Owner John Moores who want a franchise, and that a couple
of the parties are looking around the league for potential fits.
There "are rumblings the Saints can be had for the right price"
along with the Cardinals and the Bucs (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 6/2).
