Best Answer

No - the Ravens were already an existing franchise (Cleveland Browns) that moved their team to a different city (Baltimore). Expansion teams are those teams who are new NFL franchises in new cities that have never had a prior NFL team, or at least haven't had one in many years. Examples are the Jaguars and Panthers, Titans, and Texans.
