Art Modell, the late owner of the Browns and Baltimore Ravens, is not among 25 modern-era semifinalists the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Selection Committee has nominated for induction in 2014. The list was unveiled Wednesday night.
Modell, who died Sept. 6, 2012, at age 87, moved the Browns to Baltimore following the 1995 season. He won NFL titles with both franchises.
Last year, Modell was a finalist for Hall of Fame induction, but he failed to make the first cut from 15 to 10. The same thing happened in 2002, the only other time he was named a finalist. He was a semifinalist seven times between 2002 and 2012.
The complete list of modern-era semifinalists is below. None of them is a former member of the Browns.
