Ravens Sign Three Players, Cut Matt Furstenburg And Two Others

Posted May 19, 2014

The Ravens also cut defensive tackle Cody Larsen and outside linebacker D.J. Bryant.


The Ravens have made some tweaks to their roster following the weekend’s rookie minicamp.

Baltimore signed three veteran free agents to give them some depth on the roster. The team added running back Shaun Chapas, offensive guard Will Rackley and tight end Phillip Supernaw.

To make room for them on the roster, the Ravens cut tight end Matt Furstenburg, defensive lineman Cody Larsen and outside linebacker D.J. Bryant.

Chapas, Rackley and Supernaw are all veterans who have spent some time in the NFL.

Rackley has the most NFL experience among the three, as he started 25 of the 26 games he played for the Jacksonville Jaguars between 2011 and 2013. He missed the entire 2012 season because of an ankle injury. The Jaguars cut Rackley in March.

Chapas also spent last season in Jacksonville as a member of the practice squad. He previously played for the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions.

Supernaw has been with the Houston Texans for the last three years, spending time on the practice squad and the active roster. The Ravens signed him after he participated in minicamp on a tryout basis. He is now the second former Texans tight end to join the Ravens, as the Ravens signed veteran Owen Daniels earlier this offseason.

Supernaw’s arrival led to the release of Furstenburg, a Maryland product who was on the practice squad last season. Larsen was also on the practice squad last season, and he was trying to make the transition to offensive line, as he took reps on the offensive side of the ball during the weekend’s minicamp.

Bryant missed all of last season after suffering a leg injury in the final preseason game. He had been with the Ravens since 2012 and did not appear in a regular season game.
