Former Browns Jim Brown, Paul Warfield, Bernie Kosar, Dick Ambrose, Doug Dieken, Robert Jackson and John Wooten were among those attending the funeral of ex-owner Art Modell in Baltimore Tuesday.
Also paying their respects to Modell, who died Thursday at age 87, were former coach Marty Schottenheimer, retired trainer Bill Tessendorf and equipment manager Ed Carroll, Modell’s secretary Marilyn McGrath and Dino Lucarelli of alumni relations.
Dieken said no members of the Browns’ front office attended, but that the team considered the players their representatives and paid for their airfare.

Dieken said Modell's son John twice referred to how much his father loved Cleveland during his eulogy and looked in their direction.
