NFL | DeBartolo could return to NFL

Mark Kreidler, of the Sacramento Bee, reports former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo could return to the NFL if he were to gain the approval of other owners. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said DeBartolo could come to the NFL with a team he wanted to buy and a deal to make it happen and only need 24 of the league's 32 owners to OK it. Former 49ers QB Joe Montana said, "I think he's wanted to get back in for a long period of time. I just hope other people are ready to accept him who have been in the NFL because he will bring some excitement back as a team owner. He'll be more dedicated than you can imagine." Montana said he would not rule out being part of a DeBartolo ownership group if the right opportunity came along.
