Ravens docked week of organized team activities, Harbaugh, team fined

The Baltimore Ravens were punished with one week of organized team activities forfeited with coach John Harbaugh and the team fined for violating offseason rules. The team was fined $343,057 and Harbaugh was fined $137,223. The Ravens had rookies in full pads at a rookie minicamp, a violation of the rules. "We made a mistake and we are sorry for that," the Ravens said in a statement. "We accept the NFL discipline." "It's on me," Harbaugh said. "It's completely me. It was my decision. That's the situation that we're in and we'll adjust and we'll adapt. We'll still become the best football team that we can be." Harbaugh said he misinterpreted the rulebook. "There are things that you look at and you say, 'I think we have an opportunity to gain some ground with our rookies,'" Harbaugh said. "It wasn't the case. It was wrong. I read it the wrong way. The bottom line: It's on me." This happened in 2010 after several players complained to the players' union about late meetings and being on the field too long after practice.
