BALTIMORE, Maryland — David Modell, 55, former team president of the Baltimore Ravens, and son of former Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell, has passed away.

The Ravens tweeted a photo of him Friday afternoon and said, “You will be missed, David.”

The team said David had been battling cancer for almost two years.  Last month, David told ESPN that he was suffering from Stage IV lung cancer.

David Modell served as President of the Baltimore Ravens from the team’s beginning in 1996 through the Super Bowl XXXV championship in 2000 and continued until 2004.

The Ravens said David, who was born in Willoughby, Ohio, made his first mark in Cleveland and in league circles with the work he did marketing the Browns.
