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.

 

Two former Ravens -- tight end Shannon Sharpe and cornerback Deion Sanders -- did make the cut. The selection committee will announce the inductees Feb. 6, the day before the Super Bowl.

 

Here are the 17 finalists (* - senior nominee): Jerome Bettis, Tim Brown, Cris Carter, Dermontti Dawson, Richard Dent, Chris Doleman, Marshall Faulk, Charles Haley, *Chris Hanburger, Cortez Kennedy, Curtis Martin, Andre Reed, *Les Richter, Willie Roaf, Ed Sabol, Deion Sanders and Shannon Sharpe.
