December 01, 1993|By Asssociated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Although Memphis has been shut out by the NFL, the city still harbors hopes for a team. "We don't quit," said Memphis cotton merchant William Dunavant.

Dunavant said he will talk with other members of his group about trying to bring an existing NFL team to Memphis.

"We've got four cities in mind, a couple of them I really wouldn't want to discuss," he told reporters. "But we all know the [Los Angeles] Rams are being discussed and the [New England] Patriots are being discussed.

"I don't have to be an owner. I just want to be involved in helping another owner move to Memphis. If he wants to do that, or wants to sell the team, I'm interested in that also."
