No Dillon deal in works

        The agent for 1,000-yard running back Corey Dillon said the Bengals haven't approached his client about extending his contract.

        There have been rumblings Dillon is unhappy with the Bengals' constant losing, but Marvin Demoff said Dillon would have an open mind about extending his three-year deal that expires after the 1999 season.

        The Bengals haven't been able to side with any of their veterans who become free agents next month.

        “Anytime you talk about long-term security to a guy who's never had much money, clearly he would listen to what they had to say,” Demoff said.

        BENGALS-BROWNS?: The Bengals are still in the running to be the Cleveland Browns' opening opponent when the expansion team begins play in September, according to high-ranking NFL officials in Denver last weekend.

        The Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers are the leading candidates to play the first regular-season game in the Browns' new stadium.
