Ravens release statement following ESPN Outside The Lines story

Organization calls the report false.

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

The Ravens offered a brief statement concerning the ESPN Outside The Lines story that published early Friday evening.

"The ESPN.com 'Outside the Lines' article contains numerous errors, inaccuracies, false assumptions and, perhaps, misunderstandings. The Ravens will address all of these next week in Baltimore after our trip to Cleveland for Sunday's game against the Browns."

John Harbaugh will likely get asked about the report on Sunday and no-comment everything until the scheduled presser. By denying the report now, the Ravens better hope the NFL's "independent" investigation doesn't discover what ESPN alleges in the story.

Yet again, the Ravens have another distraction to deal with heading into an ever-important divisional game. We'll have to see if the players can compartmentalize everything surrounding this like they were able to last time.
