Holdout of First-Round Pick Michael Oher Official

The Ravens official site has a piece on the now official holdout on first-round pick Michael Oher:

Rookie offensive tackle Michael Oher showed a lot of promise when he played with the first team in offseason minicamps.

While the Ravens would like to see him continue that through training camp, Oher can’t until he arrives in Westminster, Md., ready to sign his new contract.

Oher’s holdout officially began as the 6-foot-4, 309-pounder was not on the field for either of the Ravens’ initial two practices.

Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh remained hopeful that both sides could come to an agreement.

And the sooner, the better.

“It already has started to hamper his ability,” Harbaugh said of Oher’s holdout. “We think every day is important. We’ve said that before. We want every guy here every single day.

“But, there are other issues involved. The sooner Michael gets in, the better he’s going to be, and the better team we’re going to be. I know Michael Oher wants to be here.”
