With unanimous support from owners, the league will expand to 31 teams for the 1999 season, keeping its commitment to put a club in Cleveland after the Browns moved to Baltimore in 1995. NFL The Browns will return to the AFC Central, playing their first exhibition game against Dallas in the Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio, next year. The first home game is scheduled to be played Aug. 21, 1999, in a $247 million, 72,000-seat stadium being built on the same site as old Cleveland Stadium, which was torn down after the move. NFL Commissioner Paul Tag-liabue also announced that the league hired Joe Mack as player personnel director of the Browns. NFL owners also ratified an extension of the collective bargaining agreement and Tagliabue was given a five-year contract extension on the first day of meetings. The owners voted 28-1 with one abstention to extend the bargaining agreement through the 2003 season. The possible return of instant replay will be the hot topic at the meetings, which are expected to conclude Wednesday or Thursday. Dolphins sign defensive end: The Dolphins added depth to their defensive line Monday, sign-ins end Mike Chalenski to a one- USF Varsity Courts. Gilbert denied free agency The Associated Press WASHINGTON Defensive tackle Sean Gilbert, to whom the Miami Dolphins offered $5.9 million per year last week, was denied in his bid to become a free agent Monday night. Special master Jack Frie-denthal ruled Gilbert must remain the designated franchise player for the Washington Redskins, who now will try to trade him or hope another team signs him. If signed, the franchise tag means the team that signs him must give up two first-round picks, or a similar compensation deal. Bob Ackles, Dolphins director of football operations, has said the team might pull its offer if Gilbert's franchise tag was not reduced (perhaps to transition player) or removed. Couple that with Jimmy Johnson's history of not dealing draft picks and it appears the Dolphins are out of the hunt. Gilbert had attracted offers up to $6 million per year from other teams, including the Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars. Gilbert and the NFL Players Union argued the Redskins violated a clause in the collective bargaining agreement that states a club must "have a good faith intention to employ" a franchise player. Gilbert has refused to comment on the matter. Special to the Palm Beach Post NORFOLK, Va. Ronald Curry, one of the nation's top high school recruits in basketball and football, will announce that he will attend North Carolina, according to a published report.

"The day after Phil Ford left, Ronald told Brower to call him back and tell him," one source said. "Paperwork was ordered from Carolina." The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that Curry likely will play both sports for the Tar Heels. Curry would not confirm the reports. Speaking to reporters Monday following practice for Wednesday's McDonald's Ail-Americans game in Norfolk, Curry said: "Find out (at the news conference). It's over with now. I already made my decision." Curry, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound senior, plans to announce his decision today. Curry said he made up his mind last week.
