Numerous television and radio stations in Cleveland, Baltimore, Tampa Bay and Columbus, Ohio, reported variations of the same story, despite denials from Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White and Tampa Bay officials. "I've been in this business long enough to listen to anybody about just about anything," White said.

The first game of the 1999 NFL exhibition season - the annual Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio - will feature the Dallas Cowboys and the Cleveland Browns. That's right. The NFL owners decided yesterday to award Cleveland an expansion franchise to replace the team that bolted to Baltimore two years ago. There could be more soon. Today, owners will discuss adding another expansion team. Houston, another city abandoned by the league, appears to be the leading contender. Los Angeles and Toronto are also candidates.

CLEVELAND - When the Eagles defense was at its best on Friday, when it was so aggressive that the Cleveland Browns struggled to even hold the ball, the group appeared as fearsome as it has all preseason. That says as much about the concern presented in the first two preseason games as the opponent Friday, but the Eagles' 27-10 win was at least an auspicious effort from the defense. "With the exception of a couple plays, I thought the ones did a pretty good job," coach Andy Reid said, referring to the starters.

Even after he noticed the blood in his urine, Miles Austin didn't consider that he might have played the last football game of his life. This was Nov. 30 in Orchard Park, N.Y., against the Buffalo Bills. Austin was playing for the Cleveland Browns, and he had caught a pass from Johnny Manziel - the first completion of Manziel's career - and turned up the field toward the left sideline. He tried to hurdle a defensive player, and when Austin landed on the ground, another Bills player landed on top of him. He didn't sense much pain in that instant, but after the Browns' 26-10 loss, his abdomen began to ache, as if he were having an episode of agita.

Most evaluations of the Eagles' new quarterback come with a two-word caveat that seems attached to Sam Bradford's name: if healthy . The qualifier shows both the risk the Eagles absorbed in Tuesday's trade and the potential reward that could come their way. "When I put the question mark on him, that's it," said former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski, an ESPN analyst. "I don't question his talent, his ability, his cerebral ability to lead a football team and run an offense. But he's got to stay healthy.

NFL linebacker Tom Cousineau said in an interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer that despite persistent rumors, he is not a homosexual. Cousineau said he was not sure how the rumors began, although he suspected that they may have been generated by the grumblings of former Cleveland Browns teammates who were upset when he joined the team in 1982 as its highest-paid player. Cousineau's agent, John Geletka, also told the newspaper that the rumors led to Cousineau's release by the Browns in September.

Steve Spagnuolo was Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford's first NFL coach with the St. Louis Rams, and he told 97.5 The Fanatic that his former top pick is "going to do great things" in Philadelphia.

MANY A YOUNGSTER with the sounds of newspaper presses thundering in their dreams had one great wish: They wanted to be a Sandy Grady when they grew up. Sandy could mold a sentence into a work of art, no matter the subject, from boxing to the Olympics to baseball to the political scene, all of which he graced with a fluid style that never seemed to bump. Some of his memorable words still ring like a punch in the funny bone. He once wrote of an unpopular Eagles coach: "He couldn't sell iced tea to a Tasmanian at a dried-up water hole.

TO MOST football fans, Willie McGinest is the NFL Network analyst who was selected to two Pro Bowls and was a big part of three championship teams for the New England Patriots. To Soul linebacker Beau Bell, the former linebacker represents something much more personal. Bell was a fourth-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2008 when he met McGinest, who was about to begin his 15th and final NFL season. Bell tweaked his knee in training camp and was coming off arthroscopic surgery.

Miles Austin revamped his warm-up regimen before last season to shake the "injury-prone" label that now follows the 30-year-old receiver to the Eagles. Austin played the first 11 games of 2014 for the Cleveland Browns without major problems with his hamstring, which forced him to miss 11 games in his final three seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. Then, he suffered a lacerated kidney in the 12th game, ending his season and bringing him onto the free-agent market after another unfinished campaign.
