Former Ravens star elected to Pro Football Hall of Fame, Jerome Bettis is not

Jonathan Ogden, the first draft pick in Ravens history, was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday in his first year of eligibility.

Late Ravens owner Art Modell, who brought pro football back to Baltimore and was also one of 15 modern-era finalists, fell short of election, as did former Steelers running back, Jerome Bettis.

Ogden was joined in the 2013 Hall of Fame class by Dallas Cowboys guard Larry Allen, Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle tackle Warren Sapp, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cris Carter, longtime coach Bill Parcells and two older-era candidates, defensive tackle Curly Culp and linebacker Dave Robinson. Allen and Sapp were also in their first year of eligibility.
