Ravens Lose Final Week of OTAs

The Baltimore Ravens have lost the final week of their "Organized Team Activity" sessions over violations of the Collective Bargaining Agreement that occurred during earlier sessions.

The NFL Management Council and NFL Player Association issued the following joint statement, via ProFootballTalk.com:

"The NFL Management Council and the NFL Players Association have resolved a complaint by the Players Association against the Baltimore Ravens concerning violations of the Collective Bargaining Agreement's off-season workout rules.

"It was determined that the Ravens violated the rules concerning the intensity and tempo of drills conducted on the Club's organized team activity days ('OTA days') and the length of time spent by players at the Club's facility on such days.

"As a result, the Ravens will forfeit the final week of their off-season program (June 14-18, 2010). Ravens' players are not permitted to be at the facility on those days, but will be paid for the sessions. The Club cannot reschedule the canceled days."

The Ravens had the maximum number (14) of OTA sessions scheduled for this off-season. Instead of closing out their off-season schedule on June 18, the Ravens' off-season will now end this Thursday.
