The NFL punished John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens today for practicing this year early with pads on. Even though it was for only 5 minutes, it was a mistake and Harbaugh apologized.
NFL decision regarding offseason workouts: Ravens forfeit one week of OTAs (June 1-3) and fined team and HC John Harbaugh.

The Ravens issued a statement regarding the league’s ruling on the matter, saying: “We made a mistake and we are sorry for that. We accept the NFL discipline.”
I am glad that the Ravens did not lose a draft pick. That would have been ridiculous.
