RAVENS, COACH punished FOR WORKOUTS

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens forfeited one week of offseason practices for violating the labor agreement on such workouts.

The NFL also fined coach John Harbaugh $137,000 Thursday, and the team was fined $343,000 under current collective bargaining agreement guidelines.

When the Ravens had rookies and first-year players don pads at a minicamp, it was a violation of the CBA rules.

"It's completely me," Harbaugh said. "It was my decision. I told the team that not one coach or player should have any anxiety over this."

In a statement, the Ravens said: "We made a mistake and we are sorry for that. We accept the NFL discipline."

Baltimore's June 1-3 voluntary workouts were scrapped.
