Could the Ravens be cheating?
During the Ravens-Browns game this past Sunday, a man that has been identified as Darren Sanders, the Ravens’ Senior Director of Security, was seen behind head coach John Harbaugh with what appears to be an illegal headpiece.

Barstool Sports president Dave Portnoy noticed this first, asking NFL analyst Michael Lombardi if Bluetooth earpieces are allowed on NFL sidelines since the rule is unclear.
Last week, it was noticed that the Ravens were using clear 360 degree views during their home games at M&T Bank Stadium.
Why would the director of security be directly behind the head coach during a game? Could the security director be relaying some sort of signs to the Ravens?

Is this legal?
It’d be a shame if someone considered this cheating. pic.twitter.com/6D9ddumW2V

One time is a mistake, the next time it becomes a pattern. Cheating or not, why is it that this event and the 360-degree view showing the Ravens filming opponents’ sidelines are not getting much media attention?
