The Ravens released a statement Sunday night from owner Steve Bisciotti on the death of former Baltimore Colts defensive lineman Art Donovan.
“We lost a friend, one of the finest men and one of the greatest characters we were fortunate to meet in this community and in this business.
“Baltimore is now without one of its best and someone who was a foundation for the tremendous popularity of football in our area. The world is not as bright tonight because we lost someone who could make us all smile.”
