Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2013: Art Modell not selected as inductee

Andy Lyons

Cris Carter, another inductee, was an All-American during his junior year with the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced the official Class of 2013 on Saturday and former-Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell was not among the inductees. Instead Bill Parcells, Jonathan Ogden, Larry Allen, Warren Sapp, Curley Culp, Dave Robinson and former Ohio State receiver Cris Carter represent the Class of 2013.

Modell purchased the Browns in 1961, but is best remembered for relocating the franchise to Baltimore in 1996 where they became the Ravens. After eight years in Baltimore, including a Super Bowl win, Modell sold the team to Steve Bisciotti in 2003. Modell died on Sept. 6, 2012 at age 87.

Carter was a consensus All-American during his junior season at Ohio State, but was deemed ineligible for his senior season after it was revealed that he had secretly hired an agent. He was drafted in the fourth round of the Supplementary Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles, but played just three seasons with the team before joining the Minnesota Vikings.

The official enshrinement ceremony for the Class of 2013 is scheduled for Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. ET.
