NFL reportedly investigating Ravens for potential CBA violation


The Ravens are reportedly being investigated for a potential collective bargaining agreement violation during their rookie camp earlier this month.
According to ESPN, Baltimore will be investigated for using full pads during the camp for rookies and first-year players. A team official said there was a five-minute period on May 6 in which players were dressed in full pads for a drill before receiving clarification from union representative and veteran tight end Benjamin Watson that rookie camp fell under the same rules that prohibit full pads for spring organized team activities.
It remains unclear who reported the potential violation. All Ravens practices are recorded, which should aid in the investigation.
In 2010, the Ravens had to cancel their final week of OTAs for violating the rules “concerning the intensity and tempo of drills” during practices and exceeding meeting time limits.
