The 1999 Baltimore Ravens season was the team's fourth year in the National Football League. The team won 8 games and lost 8 games, missing the playoffs.

Offseason[edit]

[edit]

The Ravens were forced to switch their helmet logo for the 1999 season. Security guard Frederick Bouchat contended that he had created the Ravens' logo—a "B" inside a winged shield—that had been used from 1996 to 1998. Bouchat sued the team for $10 million, and a judge upheld a jury's verdict supporting the claim.[1]

The team's new logo—the profile of a raven's head with the letter "B"—was voted on by 7,000 fans in a Baltimore Sun poll.[2] The updated logo remains in use by the team.
