OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Michael Pierce, entering the final year of his contract, didn’t show up to any voluntary organized team activities over the past few weeks. And when he arrived at mandatory minicamp Tuesday, coach John Harbaugh deemed he wasn’t physically fit enough to practice.

Way to go jackass. Be unprepared in a contract yr.

Just heard this morning that they think he needs to lose about 40 lbs to get to the correct weight. So a crash diet to get there might make strength an issue.

He's got until opening day in September to lose that. About 2 pounds a week. He should be good.

Nevertheless what a dumby!:D contract year! His one big chance to cash in and shows up in bad shape.

Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Michael Pierce experienced another offseason setback Friday when the team placed him on the non-football injury (NFI) list, according to the NFL transaction wire.

Pierce will not be able to participate in training camp while on the NFI list, though the Ravens can activate him at any time. In the past, Baltimore has moved players to the NFI list when they failed coach John Harbaugh’s conditioning test.

The Ravens also put offensive guard Alex Lewis, who’s recovering from shoulder surgery, on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

Like with Pierce, the Ravens can activate Lewis from PUP at any time, but he is unlikely to participate in the earliest portion of training camp. The Ravens’ first full-team practice is scheduled for Thursday.

The NFI list is for players who are unable to practice but did not suffer an injury during a team-sanctioned activity, like a practice, workout or game. On Thursday, the Ravens placed four rookies on that list: wide receivers Marquise Brown and Jaylen Smith, defensive end Jaylon Ferguson and defensive tackle Daylon Mack.

All I want to know is Marquise Brown going to be training in a week or less or is this another Brad Perriman washout??!! Not too worried about Pierce---yet.

Brown is not who I am worried about. Fergusson and Pierce do concern me. Pierce could lose a lot of muscle mass to lose the weight fast. Fergusson is absolutely needed to keep the pass rush up to snuff.

For Pierce all I can say is he's had almost a month to get in shape. He probably has a couple more to get his weight down. We should know more about his status after vets report.

 

Funny, I remember as a kid Art Donovan would drive around all day in his car with the windows closed and the heat on to lose weight. He's lucky that never killed him.

 

Brown, because of his Lisfranc injury really isn't in much control over what happens. If he's another first round bust I'll be really pissed we drafted him in the first place.

Pierce is beginning to look like another Zeus situation.

I'm on board with everybody as far as the Brown concerns. Speeds his game and if one of his wheels doesn't work right then he's useless.

When Art was playing it was a different time. Defensive players usually weren't the most athletic guys. Coaches tried to put them all on the offensive side of the ball. A month really was not enough for Pierce to drop all the weight. But he has to be on the field to contribute.

 

I wanted Sweat in the first round. The 2nd round could have been a WR.

He just passed the physical and is cleared to play.
