Cass to officially join Ravens later this spring

Washington corporate lawyer Richard Cass will officially join the Baltimore Ravens as a high-ranking executive later this spring when Steve Bisciotti formally assumes control of the franchise.

Cass, 58, was at the training complex Tuesday. 

The team isn't commenting specifically on the reported addition of the former Dallas Cowboys' outside counsel who represented Bisciotti in purchasing the team.

Speaking in general terms, general manager Ozzie Newsome said of Cass: "Anytime I've been around him, I've enjoyed being around him. He's a guy that has a wealth of knowledge about the National Football League."

Because Bisciotti won't formally assume control of the team until April, the Ravens won't officially note his addition.

Cass, 58, will attend the owners meetings in Orlando, Fla. this week along with Bisciotti and Art Modell, who's selling the team to Bisciotti.

Modell's son, David, was the previous team president, and will remain with the team as a consultant for the next two years.

Cass is a partner in the law firm of Wilmer, Cutler, Pickering LLP. He received his bachelor's degree from Princeton in 1968 and his law degree from Yale in 1971, according to his listing on Martindale-Hubbell.
