Pierce was at mandatory minicamp practice Tuesday, but he was not on the field very long.

Pierce - who didn't attend any offseason practices - left the field after the team stretch, and spoke with coach John Harbaugh on his way off.

According to ESPN's Jamison Hensley, the defensive tackle looked heavier than his listed playing weight of 340 pounds.

Pierce did not participate in voluntary Organized Team Activities, but it was surprising that his first offseason impression wasn't positive. "We recognize that and pulled him off".

Ravens defensive tackle Michael Pierce isn't in good enough physical condition as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.

"He's not ready for this practice yet", Harbaugh said. Pierce will be a free agent after the 2019 season, and if he has a big year, he'll nearly certainly be getting a monstrous contract when he hits free agency in March 2020.

Despite his natural bulk, Pierce has never faced concerns about conditioning heading into his previous three seasons with the Ravens. As a rotational player, Pierce earned the fifth-highest grade for an interior defender from Pro Football Focus and was the fourth-best against the run. He'll be a free agent in 2020. We want them ready to practice and physically able to practice. He recorded 32 total tackles last season with one fumble recovery, helping the Ravens reach the postseason for the first time since 2014.

Since it's unlikely he'll be in shape by the end of minicamp on Thursday, Pierce will likely start focusing on getting into shape for training camp, which begins in late July. I told him - we did a little Twitter thing - I told him, 'Let's get paid this year.

"He's not ready for this practice yet", Harbaugh said.
