a club spokesman said. "He's
very satisfied."
The spokesman said he did
not know the reasons for Kapp's
refusal to sign.
"This is unbelievable," mOen-
eral Manager Upton Bell said.
"It is a monumental disap-
pointment," said Patriots Pres-
ident Billy Sullivan.

Kapp still is their property. Sul-
livan said he had been advised
of the situation regarding Kapp
at the NFL meetings in New
York in May.
Kapp left less than 24 hsours
after the Patriots announced
signing of their No. 1 draft
choice, Jim Plunkett, Stanford's
star quarterback and Hiesman
Trophy winner.
