The Ravens have joined the majority of the league taking Friday off.

According to Jonas Shaffer of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens announced they were declaring June 19 a holiday.

Over half the league has now closed for business to honor Juneteenth, the date to honor the emancipation of slaves after the Civil War.

The league office declared it a holiday last Friday, with many teams quickly following suit.
