Ravens, 49ers share practice field at Saints facility


The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers shared the same practice at the same time Thursday at the New Orleans Saints practice facility.

According to John Clayton of ESPN.com, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh elected to move their team’s practice from the baseball field at Tulane University where they held practice on Wednesday to the Saints headquarters that has been housing the 49ers.

The NFL partnered with the Saints and local businesses to obtain enough drapes to create a partition between the two sides of the practice field. They also blocked off the windows from the weight room as did everything they could to create two separate and secure practice venues. John and Jim Harbaugh worked together to devise a plan for each team to get the space and time needed to prepare.

Per Clayton, the practices only overlapped by approximately 10 minutes.
