Ravens Insider: Ravens to have joint practice with Packers in Green Bay this summer

Recommended Posts

The Ravens will have a joint practice with the Packers in Green Bay, Wisconsin, this summer.

Packers coach Mike LaFleur made the announcement Tuesday. Though a date wasn’t specified, it would likely take place just ahead of Baltimore’s preseason finale against Green Bay at Lambeau Field on Aug. 24.

Joint practices typically are held over two days, but LaFleur said the second day becomes an “MMA fight,” citing the Packers’ joint practices with the Cincinnati Bengals last season in which several fights occurred.

Last year, the Ravens hosted the Washington Commanders for two days of joint practices. Several fights broke out during both sessions. A scuffle also broke out during the first day of joint practices between the Ravens and Carolina Panthers in South Carolina in 2021.

Still, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said there’s value in the joint practices.

“It’s more controlled,” he said last year. “That’s the thing about joint practice; you still get a lot of great work without the ‘finish’ part of it. You don’t get the tackling, the sacks — those kinds of things.

“I will also say, that’s a double-edged sword, because then it becomes a gray area about how much is too much, and that’s where the pushing and the shoving starts sometimes.”

After the Ravens wrap up their preseason against the Packers, they will open the regular season Sept. 5 on “Thursday Night Football” against the two-time defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.
