NFL Punishes Ravens For Violating Practice Rules
Owings Mills, MD – The Baltimore Ravens have forfeited one week of offseason practices for violating the labor agreement on such workouts.
At issue was the use of full pads by rookies and players attempting to tryout for the team at the start of a May 6 practice.
When the Ravens had rookies and first-year players don pads at a minicamp, it was a violation of the CBA rules. The team acknowledged that on Thursday, saying: “We made a mistake and we are sorry for that. We accept the NFL discipline.”
Baltimore’s June 1-3 voluntary workouts have been scrapped. The team will have OTAs on June 6-9 and a mandatory minicamp June 14-16.
