OTD March 29 - Baltimore Ravens

NFL

1996: Twelve years to the day after the NFL's Baltimore Colts left for Indianapolis in the dead of night, the relocated Cleveland Browns choose the Baltimore Ravens as the team's new name. The name alludes to the famous poem "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe, who spent the early part of his career in Baltimore and is also buried there. By an earlier agreement between owner Art Modell, the NFL and the city of Cleveland, Modell relinquished ownership of the Browns' name, colors, logos and history, paving the way for a new Cleveland Browns team that resumed play in 1999.
