On Friday, Monroe mentioned the Ravens in his public campaign, saying he's not getting support from the organization he's played for over the past three seasons.
@Ravens continue to distance themselves from me and my cause. I invite you all to do some research. I won't stop. This is for my brothers— Eugene Monroe (@MrEugeneMonroe) June 10, 2016
This is for the players that make up the team. This is for the players the fans love. Our families. Our future health and wellness.— Eugene Monroe (@MrEugeneMonroe) June 10, 2016
I don't say these things to slander the @NFL or my team. I say them because we need a solution. We need change in our health care.— Eugene Monroe (@MrEugeneMonroe) June 10, 2016
The Ravens have repeatedly said Monroe's opinion on medical marijuana is his own.
"I'm aware of [Monroe's comments] because I read like you guys do," coach John Harbaugh said earlier this month. "That's really all I know about it."
Monroe's tweet about the Ravens came a week after he took what could be perceived as a shot at the team. He responded to the team's official Instagram account -- which featured a photo of a Ravens event that was sponsored by a major beer company -- by saying, "When will the NFL stop supporting alcohol, a known KILLER."
This sets up an interesting week for Monroe and the Ravens, who will begin their mandatory minicamp Tuesday. Monroe announced last week that he has been cleared after missing the previous offseason practices with a shoulder injury, and it'll be interesting to see how much time Monroe spends at left tackle with the starters.
The Ravens used the No. 6 overall pick on offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley, and it's possible Baltimore will look to trade Monroe before the start of the regular season. Monroe's $6.5 million base salary tops the Ravens this season.
Earlier this month, Monroe told ESPN he's not worried about how his stance on medical marijuana will affect his future in the game.
"I don't have any personal concerns about repercussions for speaking about medical cannabis," Monroe said. "My health and wellness future as a father [and] as a friend is far more important."
