The NFL will investigate the Baltimore Ravens for a collective bargaining agreement violation, reports ESPN’s Jamison Hensley.

According to the report, a team official admitted that the Ravens used full pads during a non-contact punt protection drill for “a five-minute period” at a May 6 rookie minicamp, which broke the CBA’s regulations. The same team official claimed that Baltimore was not aware that minicamp rules were the same as the ones followed during organized team activities.

The Ravens have since canceled the rest of their off-season workouts.

The NFL prohibits teams from wearing full pads until training camp.
