ART MODELL RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ravens once tried to buy the Colts name for $5 million

The old saying that money can buy you anything in the world has proven to be false over and over again since its inception. This story is no different. Twenty years ago Tuesday, a new Baltimore franchise was born in the NFL. Months after relocating from Cleveland, this “new” franchise unveiled their new name.

What a pisser: Browns fan who urinated on Art Modell’s grave facing charges (video)

Should Baltimore have said, “No,” to Art Modell?
