OWINGS MILLS -- The NFL punished the Ravens by taking away their second OTA session (June 1-3), and fining both coach John Harbaugh and the organization, the league announced Thursday. The punishment stems from a practice violation in rookie camp on May 6, when the Ravens briefly practiced in pads during a non-contact drill, which violated the collective bargaining agreement. The NFL investigated after the Ravens’ violation was brought to the league’s attention.
In addition to the loss of an OTA session, the team was fined $343,057 and Harbaugh was saved $137,233, according to Jim Trotter of ESPN.
The Ravens issued a brief statement after the punishment was announced.
“We made a mistake and we are sorry for that,” the statement said. “We accept the NFL discipline.”
