Statement from Fourth & Goal President Bruce Laird on the Passing of Patricia Modell


Mahatma Gandhi once said, "Man can never be a woman's equal in the spirit of selfless service with which nature has endowed her." A gracious and generous woman, Pat Modell was the epitome of selfless service in the community, in the league and in the home. She was the rock on whom Art Modell depended. She was vocal in her support of retired NFL players, at a time when far too many remained silent. 


Pat Modell’s legacy will live on in the organizations she supported, in the memories she left and in the family she loved. Our thoughts and prayers are with Art, the Modell family and the Baltimore Ravens.
