Report: Ravens, 49ers plan joint practice before preseason game

Jim Harbaugh, , John Harbaugh AP

The Harbaugh brothers are scheduled to face one another in a rematch of Super Bowl XLVII in the exhibition season this summer and it sounds like they’ve figured out a way to spend some time together ahead of the contest without infringing on practice time.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that the Ravens and 49ers are planning to join up for practice and a scrimmage ahead of their August 7 preseason opener. Those practices would give both teams a chance to see their players against outside competition in a controlled setting, something that several teams do to change up their practice schedule in the summer.

It would also make for a more productive trip across the country for the 49ers, who would get to give frontline players a bit more time in a scrimmage than they would normally get if they were just playing a handful of snaps in the first preseason game.

And then there’s the chance to ask “Who’s got it better than us?” to sweeten the deal all the more.

    The two teams in the NFL that are tied for First Place in the number of player arrests made so far in 2014, and they’re going to settle it on the field!

    It would be nice if this were one of the open practices. How about it Mr. B.?

    I wonder where they got that idea from?

    Great idea, I would think joint sessions with the Skins and Eagles would have happened. I’d like to see this practice but probably closed to the public.

    It’s a preseason game.., and the first one at that. Nobody cares who ‘wins’ these things….,
