It looks like the Harbaugh brothers are going to get some extra family time together in August. John Harbaugh announced on Friday that his team will be holding joint practices with the 49ers  following the Week 1 preseason game between the two teams. 

The Harbaugh brothers like to do things differently and these joint practices are proof of that. Most NFL teams hold a joint practice in the days before they play another team, however, the Harbaughs are going to change it up and hold the practices after the Aug. 7 preseason game between Baltimore and San Francisco. 

That means the 49ers will be on the East Coast until Aug. 11 or 12, at which point the team will jet back to California to open up Levi's Stadium on Aug. 16 or 17 against the Broncos in Week 2 of the preseason. 

John Harbaugh made the joint practice announcement from Oxford, Ohio. Both Harbaugh brothers are on the campus of Miami University where John is set to be inducted into the Cradle of Coaches. The school will be unveiling a statue for John on Saturday.
