JACOBS' NEW FIELD OF DREAMS: TRIBE BOSS WANTS BROWNS TOO

          Indians Owner Richard Jacobs confirmed yesterday that
     he has "filed an application with the NFL" for the expansion
     Browns, and "intends to take the next step in the process,"
     according to Tony Grossi of the Cleveland PLAIN DEALER. 
     Grossi reports that "next step" is to send the league a
     certified check for $150,000, half of which will be refunded
     if he is not awarded the franchise.  In return for the
     deposit, Jacobs will receive "classified information" on the
     Browns, "such as details of the new stadium lease and
     agreements already in place" with Cleveland.  Jacobs did not
     say "whether he would seek partners or join a competing
     ownership group" (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 7/8).
