Defensive coordinator Don Martindale said he was disappointed in the shape in which Pierce showed up to mandatory minicamp after bypassing previous offseason workouts.
“Of course you are disappointed,” Martindale said, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN. “What I said to him, I said it in the front of the entire defense: Life is all about choices. Just don’t make that choice create your life”
Pierce, a restricted free agent, allegedly showed up to minicamp looking nicely within his listed weight of 340 lbs. After taking Pierce to action in front of his teammates, Martindale did not want to include more fuel on Wednesday, presuming that the 26-year-old captured the message.
“We piled on enough yesterday,” he said. “Let’s don’t forget what a great football player he is. He will reunite. I can’t let you know when, but he will get back there.”
An undrafted free agent signing in 2016, Pierce impressed through his first three seasons, and is one of the top run-stuffing defensive tackles in the league as a rotational player. Entering a pivotal season, the Ravens will need Pierce to narrow down over the next six weeks leading up to training camp in late July. The defensive tackle risks seeing his non-guaranteed $3 million wages wiped away.
