CFL owner McNall meets with Rypien

June 26, 1992|By Vito Stellino | Vito Stellino,Staff Writer

Bruce McNall, owner of the Toronto Argonauts, is starting to make a habit of meeting with unsigned Washington Redskins.

McNall, who recently had a dinner meeting with the team's top draft choice, Desmond Howard, in Los Angeles, met yesterday with quarterback Mark Rypien in Portland, Ore.

Rypien was in Portland for a golf tournament and McNall was there for Toronto's Canadian Football League exhibition game against the Calgary Stampeders. The CFL is considering expanding to Portland.

McNall, who also owns the Los Angeles Kings of the NHL, has the CFL rights to Rypien, and Calgary has the rights to Howard.

"Moves like getting a Rypien or a Desmond Howard is something all the [CFL] owners must get together to collectively do for the CFL," said McNall, who signed ex-Notre Dame standout Raghib "Rocket" Ismail last year.
