Modell Among Finalists For Pro Football Hall Of Fame

CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell (pictured, right) is among 15 finalists announced on Thursday for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.

If Modell is elected, it could create an interesting situation during the induction ceremonies scheduled for Aug. 3 at the Hall.

Modell was the owner of the old Cleveland Browns. He moved the team to Baltimore where the franchise became the Ravens. The Ravens went on to win the Super Bowl last year.

Quarterback Jim Kelly and coach Bill Parcells also are among the finalists.

The class of 2002 will be determined by a vote of the Hall's Board of Selectors on Feb. 2 in New Orleans -- the day before the Super Bowl.
