The announcement was made by the owner Art Modell, who has purchased the Cleveland Browns in 1961. This decision was followed by threats of legal action from the city of Cleveland and fans. Finally, Modell was allowed to establish the Baltimore Ravens as a new franchise while retaining the contracts of all Browns personnel.
