Angelos pursuing 3rd team?

October 26, 1994|By From Staff Reports

Peter Angelos has added a third club to the list of teams he is pursuing in an effort to return the NFL to Baltimore, Channel 11 reported last night.

Angelos, the Orioles' owner, declined to identify the club, the station said. The Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the other teams targeted for possible relocation to a proposed football stadium at Camden Yards.

The Rams, unhappy with their stadium situation and fan support in Anaheim, Calif., delivered formal notice to the city in May that they expect to cancel their lease in August 1995, invoking an escape clause that would allow them to relocate after this season.

The club has entertained offers from St. Louis and Baltimore, as well as one from a group trying to keep the team in Southern California.

Earlier this month, Angelos pressed the Rams for a decision and said he thought one would be made before November.

The Buccaneers are in the hands of a three-member board of trustees that has run the team since owner Hugh Culverhouse died Aug. 25.

Angelos offered $200 million for the club earlier this year, but it was rejected after team officials said the franchise was not for sale.
