When Bisciotti bought the Baltimore Ravens, he precipitously materialized like a phantom. Bisciotti appeared as a question mark in the sports world, but remained famed in the aerospace realm. Bisciotti started the company Aerotek (now the Allegis Group) with his cousin Jim Davis in 1983. Within in one year, Aerotek conducted \$1.5 million in sales.
