PAT NOT BOWLEN-OVER BY L.A. BIDS: SAYS HOUSTON MAY FIT

          Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen said that if neither the Ed
     Roski/Eli Broad group nor the Michael Ovitz expansion group
     can secure a L.A. stadium agreement soon, he will support
     putting an NFL expansion franchise in Houston and relocating
     an existing team to L.A., according to Curtis Eichelberger
     of BLOOMBERG NEWS.  Bowlen: "I don't think Los Angeles is
     the no brainer people are making it out to be.  I don't have
     any confidence that a stadium agreement is going to get done
     by either of the Los Angeles groups. ... If the stadium
     isn't ready, there's nothing wrong with giving Houston the
     expansion team, negotiating our own stadium agreement in Los
     Angeles and later re-locating a team there. ... Houston at
     some point in time will have a franchise" (BLOOMBERG, 3/11).
