Ravens fined, docked 1 week of OTAs for violating offseason workout rules
Official terms of the punishment were not disclosed, but the organization and head coach John Harbaugh are handed fines of $343,057 and $137,223, respectively, reports Jim Trotter of ESPN.
Ravens players were in full pads for part of a practice at rookie minicamp in May, which is a violation of the terms of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement.
Baltimore claimed it was unaware the rules governing the use of full pads extended from spring workouts to rookie minicamp.
"We made a mistake and we are sorry for that. We accept the NFL discipline," a Ravens representative said in an statement.
As a result of the punishment, the Ravens will cancel the OTAs they had planned for June 1-3.
