Vote on Browns Soon

ATLANTA ) -- Amid signs of support within the NFL for a move of the Browns from Cleveland to Baltimore, league officials have pledged a vote on the issue within weeks.


"We will move this in the next few weeks to a resolution,'' said NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue on Wednesday.


Tagliabue's comments capped off a day of presentations to NFL owners by the Browns and Cleveland.


Cleveland mayor Michael White adopted a conciliatory tone at a news conference, saying: "We believe the meetings with the league and the owners provide a basis for continuing discussions to achieve our goal of a mutually satisfactory resolution of this matter."


Asked if he would consider a new team moving to his city, possibly taking the Browns' name and colors, White replied: "I don't telegraph negotiations."
