Ravens and 49ers to hold joint practices

120px-Ray_Rice_run_during_SB_XLVIIThe Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will hold four joint practices together after their preseason game, head coach John Harbaugh said.  The Ravens usually do not hold joint practices during training camp so this will be something new to them.

Having a joint practice with the 49ers makes sense.  The head coaches are brothers and the 49ers do have to travel across the country to play.  The trip will be more meaningful for the 49ers now that they will be staying a few days.

Ravens preseason schedule

120px-Ray_Rice_run_during_SB_XLVIIThe Baltimore Ravens have just released their preseason schedule. The Ravens play the Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers.

I think it is a little odd that the Ravens play three teams that have a long travel.  The 49ers will have to travel across the country for a preseason game, which is rare.  Of course the 49ers and Ravens want to play each other as much as they can because of the Harbaugh brothers.

 

Here is the Ravens press release.
