Jeff Zrebiec is reporting that the Ravens will lose final two OTAs this week as a result of an undisclosed infraction of league rules. Beyond that, Ravens HC John Harbaugh and owner Steve Bisciotti are facing potential fines for the infraction.
According to Ian Rapoport, Harbaugh was fined $50,000 and Bisciotti $100,000.
Clifton Brown reported a few weeks ago that the Ravens were expected to be punished for a practice violation in rookie camp back on May 6, when they briefly practiced in pads during a non-contact drill, which is a violation of the collective bargaining agreement.
The Ravens issued the following statement regarding the punishment: “We made a mistake and we are sorry for that. We accept the NFL discipline.”
Back in 2016, the Ravens were fined $500,000 and forced to forfeit three organized team activities for a violation of the CBA during rookie minicamp.
We’ll have more regarding the Ravens as the news is available.
