Baltimore had been upset that the Baltimore Colts had relocated to Indianapolis, and kept their team name and colors. So when Cleveland moved to Baltimore, they started new traditions with a new team name and uniforms. This allowed Cleveland to keep their team name and colors, when they eventually got a team again.
The Ravens came into existence when Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell signed an agreement with City of Baltimore and the Maryland Stadium Authority to move the franchise to Baltimore for the 1996 season. Following several legal disputes, Modell agreed to leave the Browns name and history in Cleveland, and start fresh in Baltimore.

One of the first black executives in the NFL, Newsome came with Art Modell from Cleveland during the 1996 move, and worked his way up to the GM position. He is considered one of, if not the best GM's in the NFL. His smart draft choices and knack for finding great players with talent at affordable prices are legendary in the NFL, and have kept the Ravens competitive over the 17 years he's been here.
The Ravens were originally the Cleveland Browns before owner Art Modell moved the team to Baltimore. As part of legal agreement, Modell agreed to leave the Browns history and records in Cleveland, and the Ravens started as a new football team within the NFL.
