The Baltimore Ravens announced today that they will hold a public practice with the San Francisco 49ers. The open practice will be held one day after the two teams square off against each other at M&T Bank Stadium on Friday, Aug. 8 at 1:00 pm.
The logic behind the 49ers-Ravens practices is to broaden their horizons as they go against other teams rather then themselves. The two teams will hold four practices total and Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is extremely excited as he said:
“I’m excited about the fact that we’ve never done it before. We are going against a program that we understand what they’re all about. So we’re not bringing some program in here that we don’t trust, that doesn’t believe in the things that we believe as far as hard work. It’s going to be a program that mirrors what we’re trying to do as far as working hard. To me, that’s really important and I think we’ll both get better as a result.”
