. They are currently members of the Northern Division of the American Football Conference in the National Football League
. The Ravens have won one Super Bowl title, Super Bowl XXXV in 2001 against the New York Giants
fans proved they would support a football team by attending the CFL's Baltimore
Stallions' games. This did not escape Art Modell's notice.
Art relocated his team per the agreement with the City of Cleveland
and retained the Cleveland
players and personnel. He brought in coach Ted Marchibroda formerly of the Baltimore
Colts and Indianapolis Colts.
The history of the Baltimore
Ravens is unusual due to the unique actions taken by the cities of Baltimore
, and the NFL
in 1996. On November 6, 1995, then Cleveland Browns
owner Art Modell announced his intention to move the team to Baltimore
, citing the inadequacy of Cleveland
Stadium and the lack of a sufficient replacement along with his heavy debt. The decision triggered a flurry of legal activity that ended when representatives of Cleveland
and the NFL
reached a settlement on February 8, 1996. It stipulated that the Browns' name, colors, and history of the franchise were to remain in Cleveland
. A reactivated Cleveland Browns
team would then begin play in 1999, while the relocated club would technically and legally be a new expansion team, the Ravens. The team's name comes from the famous Edgar Allan Poe poem, "The Raven."
