An NFL team may find themselves in some hot water as the the League is convinced they have broken a well-known rule regarding minicamp rules.

The NFL believes the Baltimore Ravens intentionally disregarded rules that disallow contact during team's rookie minicamps, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

If found guilty, the Ravens could face disciplinary action from the NFL.

Under the provisions of the collective bargaining agreement, the use of full pads is prohibited until training camp begins.

A Ravens official admitted last week that there was a five-minute period during the team's minicamp in which rookies wore full pads for a punt-protection drill on May 6. The team insisted it didn't know the CBA provision applies to the minicamp, believing the rule was only for organized team activities.

An investigation will only begin if a player reports the violation to the NFL or NFLPA. A Ravens official said all activity could be verified since the practices are taped in full.
