Modell doesn't make Hall of Fame cut

Art Modell, the Ravens majority owner from 1996 to 2003, isn't among the final 17 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Modell hasn't been a finalist for the Hall of Fame since 2001. His candidacy has been a hot-button issue with voters because of his unpopular relocation of the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore in February 1996.
